Ford to build 13 electrified cars by 2022

Ford is set to release 13 news electrified vehicles by 2022, including hybrid versions of the Mustang and F-150.

The company will also build a plug-in hybrid version of the Transit Custom van, and a fully electric small SUV, which will boast a 300-mile range.

It is thought that this new crossover could be a replacement for the EcoSport, which has been greeted with a mixed reception since its arrival in 2014.

Ford has also confirmed that it will be investing $700m (£573m) in its Flat Rock assembly plant, in Michigan. This will become the centre of the brand’s electric vehicle production, as well as being home to the Mustang and the Lincoln Continental.

This investment comes as part of Ford’s $4.5bn (3.68bn) commitment to electrified and autonomous vehicles.

“As more and more consumers around the world become interested in electrified vehicles, Ford is committed to being a leader in providing consumers with a broad range of electrified vehicles, services and solutions that make people’s lives better,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s president and CEO.

“Our investments and expanding line-up reflect our view that global offerings of electrified vehicles will exceed gasoline-powered vehicles within the next 15 years.”
