Back in late 2015, we learned Ford would invest $4.5 billion to add electric vehicle technology to 13 new models appearing by 2020. However, we didn’t know how that plan would work as far as the actual cars and trucks were concerned. After GM and Tesla showcased their long-range EVs and other automakers followed suit, many wondered if Ford’s plug-in plans weren’t going on the back burner.
Well, those cars will come eventually, but they will take a while. In the first days of 2017, we learned about the first seven models the company will electrify by the start of the next decade. As company officials hinted throughout 2016, Ford did not treat its most iconic vehicles as too good for the technology. Both the world’s best-selling truck and the industry’s most recognizable sports car will get battery-powered boosts in the coming years.
Here are seven new cars Ford confirmed it will produce as part of its electric vehicle push.
