The news quickly made the rounds of the Canadian media. American giant Ford announced on April 4 that it was delaying the transformation of its Oakville, Ontario plant (where the Edge CUVs are currently assembled) into an electric vehicle plant. In fact, Ford had already announced five new models, all electric. Its decision is based on declining consumer interest in electric vehicles. As a result, EV production has been pushed back two years to 2027 (including the Explorer and Aviator EV models).

On the other hand, following this decision, Ford also announced that it would proceed to add an (optional) hybrid configuration to most of its current cars, as GM recently did. At the same time, although no official decision had been taken, the current Ford Edge would remain in production for some time to come.
