Automaker Ford Motor is developing a family of electric vehicles that is intended to be aimed at European markets.
Ford of Europe president Stuart Rowley has said that the company is working on the electric vehicles at its European development centre in Cologne, Germany.
Automotive News Europe reports that no timing has been given for a launch, but that a source close to Ford said that the vehicles would arrive in the next couple of years.
The new electric vehicles will be built in an unidentified plant in Europe, according to Automotive News Europe.
Whilst Volkswagen has said it’s ‘keen to widen the costumer base for MEB outside of its own brand,’ Ford have not disclosed whether the new family of electric vehicles would use Volkswagen’s MEB electric platform as part of a collaboration between the two companies.
According to Automotive News Europe Ford’s former CEO, Mark Fields, told a mobility conference in Israel in June, ‘Electrification is going to grow over the years, but it’s not going to grow to the extent all the experts are telling you.’
