Ford plans electrified versions of all Lincoln models by 2022, says report
Ford Motor Co’s premium brand plans Lincoln to offer hybrid gasoline-electric versions of all its U.S. models by 2022, Canadian news outlet Reuters reported citing three sources familiar with the plans.
“Details could be announced as early as October 3, when Ford Chief Executive Officer Jim Hackett plans to update investors on the automaker’s strategy,” says the report.
Ford already builds a hybrid non-plug-in version of the Lincoln MKZ in Hermosillo, Sonora, but some necessary investments would have to take place at the assembly plant and among suppliers in order to make plug-in hybrid and full electric variants.
Reuters said the Lincoln hybrids are part of a broader Ford program to offer at least 18 new electric and hybrid models over the next five years.
