Ford Is Planning Lincoln EVs Including the Navigator
According to a very recent report from Reuters, Ford is planning electric versions of all of its Lincoln luxury brand’s current SUVs. And that means battery-electric models that might replace or supplement the current Lincoln Corsair, Nautilus, Aviator, and Navigator. The first of these new EVs should be a crossover about the size of the current Lincoln Aviator. Its production is believed to begin production in late 2024 or early 2025 at Ford’s Oakville, Ontario, plant still according to the report. Keep in mind that Ford already announced in late 2020 that it would spend close to 2.3 billion CAD to convert the Oakville plant to EV production. Five EV vehicles are expected to be built there.
Among them are potential electric replacements for the Corsair and Nautilus crossovers beginning in 2025 or 2026. The same report mentioned some of the smaller Lincoln electric SUVs could use a version of the platform underpinning the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Finally, Ford could also be planning a large electric SUV equivalent to the Lincoln Navigator for 2026 using a new electric truck platform that will be shared with the next-generation Ford F-150 Lightning pickup.
