A recent report from the Reuters agency reports that Lincoln, Ford Motor Company’s luxury vehicle brand, plans to introduce five new fully electric vehicles by the end of 2026. It currently sells two electrified vehicles, the plug-in hybrid versions of the Aviator and Corsair SUVs, and had announced a plan to electrify its entire lineup by 2030. However, this report suggests that the transformation could happen earlier.

According to three anonymous sources consulted by Reuters, the first electric Lincoln to arrive will be an SUV with three rows of seats of similar proportions to the current Aviator, which would begin to be built in late 2024 or early 2025 at the Ford assembly plant. in Oakville, Ont.

In 2025 and 2026, the same factory will be the birthplace of the electric successors to Lincoln’s current two-row SUVs, the compact Corsair and midsize Nautilus. There will also be at least one smaller Lincoln electric vehicle, which would share the same platform that powers the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The sources did not provide a production schedule for this model.

In order to build these new electric SUVs, the Oakville plant will undergo a $1.5 billion renovation as part of the brand’s $30 billion transformation plan.

The highlight of Lincoln’s electrification will be the zero-emission counterpart to its flagship vehicle, the full-size Navigator SUV. This car was built on the dedicated electric truck platform that will debut with the arrival of the F-150 Lightning later this year.

In the summer of 2021, Lincoln announced that it would show its first electric product in 2022, which could have been a reference to the public debut of the first of the cars mentioned by Reuters. The report does not mention if this company will continue with its current and successful design language or if it will adopt the visual cues that distinguish the Lincoln Zephyr that has just debuted in China, whose front shows a certain similarity to the lines that reveals the image of intrigue that Lincoln published in June to illustrate that ad.
