Ford is quickly delivering on its promise fully electric in Europe. Company plan now will introduce seven new EVs in Europe by 2024. The range will focus on crossovers, including an electric version of the compact Puma as well as “midsize” and “sport” models. five seats. You can also look forward to new versions of the Transit and Tourneo vans, including smaller Courier versions as well as Custom models.
The midsize crossover will be the first mass-produced passenger EV from Ford’s new Cologne facility and will include five seats and an already announced 310-mile range. Ford will officially reveal this car later this year and start production in 2023.
The Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom are also expected to launch in 2023, while the Puma, sports crossover, Transit Courier and Tourneo Courier are due in 2024. Mustang Mach-E and Electronic transit already part of the Ford European product line. Ford hopes to transition to an all-EV passenger range in Europe by 2030 and completely remove gas and diesel from the stabilization system by 2035.
This still leaves Ford’s lineup heavily dependent on internal combustion engines, and we wouldn’t expect most (if any) of this list to make it to the US – the Puma, for example, has never been sold domestically. However, this strategy is not surprising. Ford says the Puma is its best-selling passenger vehicle in Europe, and trucks like the Transit are popular among European businesses. This route fully electrifies some of Ford’s most popular models on the continent, and even all-new crossovers will tackle the mainstream segment. Ford clearly wants its EVs to be seen as mainstream, not to mention competing with VW ID.Buzz (there will be a freighter variant focused on Europe) and other competitors.
