Lincoln to Go Fully By Electric 2030
In the last few months, a number of major manufacturers have announced that they would begin producing all-electric vehicles over the next few years. We’re now adding Lincoln Motor Company to the list.
Announcing that it would begin production of its first electric car next year, Lincoln said earlier this month that it will only build electric vehicles globally by 2030.
As Lincoln continues its transition in North America and China, “there is no better time to move the Lincoln brand forward with electrification,” said Lincoln’s President Joy Falotico. “With the smooth, exciting takeoff experience and exquisite serenity our clients expect from a Lincoln, electrification will take Quiet Flight to a new level.” Lincoln’s customers deserve nothing but the best. The Lincoln brand’s future will be transformed by its world-class automobiles, hassle-free services, and cutting-edge linked technologies.
Lincoln intends to have 50% of its global sales in zero-emission vehicles by 2025. While no precise information has been released about its first electric vehicle, Lincoln has stated that it would be based on an all-new, adaptable BEV architecture that can be used for both rear and all-wheel drive. The Lincoln Aviator and Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring PHEV models are currently available, and these additions will round out the EV portfolio.
“A striking, modern aesthetic, thoughtful details, clever storage solutions, minimalistic panels, larger, expansive panoramic vista roof, a coast-to-coast display and a new digital design language—Constellation—that includes exclusive themes showcasing the night sky” are some of the features, according to Joy Falotico, that Lincoln claims will be included in its first electric vehicle.
