Lincoln Planning At Least 5 EVs, Includes Navigator Equal: Report

According to a new Reuters storey, Lincoln will introduce at least five battery-powered SUVs by 2026. The claim, according to Reuters, comes from “three people acquainted with the plans” and includes the first information regarding the devices. Last year, Ford announced a $30 billion investment in electrification projects, with intentions to electrify the whole Lincoln lineup by 2030. Here’s a possible sneak peek of what’s to come.

This year, Lincoln will debut its first electric vehicle. The storey claims that the first of the brand’s EVs would go into production in late 2024 or early 2025, based on a teaser from last June that showed a full-width front lighting feature on the unnamed model. It’ll be roughly the same size as the Aviator. The production timeline corresponds to a speculation from late last year that the electric Aviator would be delayed until 2024.

There will also be smaller Lincoln EVs, which will share their underpinnings with the Ford Mustang Mach-E, according to the report. This model’s production timeline was not provided by the sources. It’ll also be a better version of the platform. Other electric vehicles may eventually replace the Corsair and Nautilus, which are set to go into production in 2025-2026. The electric Navigator, which will go into production in 2026 and share a platform with the F-150 Lightning, will be at the top of the line.

Although Lincoln is a little late in revealing its electrification ambitions, the above-mentioned rumoured manufacturing timeframe does not put it too far behind its competition. Across the industry, luxury brands are electrifying their lineups in various stages, with Mercedes-Benz leading the drive. A Lincoln spokesperson told Reuters that it wouldn’t discuss details about future vehicles.

When Lincoln presents the first model later this year, we’ll get a glimpse at its EV efforts. The new model’s details are scant, but the teaser image suggests that it will be styled similarly to the current model. The concept of Zephyr Reflection was established by Lincoln. If that’s the case, it’ll likely have distinctive looks, with the electric motor and infotainment software serving to set it apart from rival EVs.
