Ford has once again teased the imminent unveiling of its new electric vehicle for the European market, which it will finally reveal in two weeks.
On March 21, Ford will reveal a brand-new EV made for the European market, an all-electric crossover that is just the first portion of seven planned new models that the automaker plans to release in Europe by next year.
Very few details about the car are known currently, but past details revealed by Ford give us some ideas and plans for the car, which launches a staunch effort toward expanding its electric vehicle lineup in Europe.
The vehicle will be produced in Cologne, Germany, and will be the first of two EVs added to production lines at that factory. Along with a new iteration of the Ford Puma that will be electric, the new vehicle that will be unveiled in two weeks will join new crossovers, a Tourneo Courier, Transit Custom, and Tourneo Custom vehicle.
This vehicle, in particular, is the planned replacement of the Fiesta, which was planned to be phased out according to the company’s massive announcement last year that initiated Ford’s huge plans for a major transition toward electrification that is set to launch this year.
The Cologne Electrification Center is expected to begin EV production with a five-seat, medium-sized crossover, which is likely what Martin Sander, Head of Ford Europe, teased in the above Tweet.
Ford will spend roughly $2 billion at the plant to build EVs along with a new battery assembly facility that will become operational in 2024.
