Ford’s New All-Electric Explorer Is Here But Only In Europe

Ford has announced that it is launching a new all-electric SUV under the Explorer name, but the vehicle will only be available in Europe.

The new electric SUV is designed to help Ford get its lineup towards an all-electric model by 2030, at least in Europe. To do that the SUV will be built using Volkswagen’s MEB architecture at Ford’s factory in Cologne, Germany.

This won’t be the only EV built using VW’s platform either — there’s another one that will be released as part of an agreement that saw VW and Ford announce a global alliance back in 2019, The Verge notes.

Ford has said that it doesn’t intend to share more details about the Explorer EV, including its range, until the vehicle is closer to being ready for release. We do at least have a rough idea of how much the vehicle will cost, with Ford saying that it’ll be “less than €45,000” for the starting model.

In terms of features, we’re told to expect a  huge 15-inch center touchscreen that will move up and down, while lockable storage will also be offered.

Reservations are already open via Ford’s European website so those who want to be among the first to get their hands on an electric Explorer will be able to do so.
