True....but Ford has not stated there would be a next gen Focus Electric.. 2020 will just be too late to launch an all new/old school PHEV, when the market is beginning to flood with 150+, 200+, 300+ mile full EV Sedans, CUV and SUVs. And looking at the Ford product lifecycle, that 2020 PHEV will be sold until 2026.

The idea of transitioning consumers from ICE to EV with a PHEV is over with 200+ mile range available at reasonable cost at volume. Luckily it is China that has lit a light under Ford to get them moving in the EV direction, or they can't sell cars there. That's really what it takes I guess...

It appears the Focus is getting a mild hybrid for the 2020 MY, no plug.

Re: 2018 NYC autoshow

I am sure the Aviator will be shown at NY show. Unless they plan on doing its own event prior to the show. We know the Focus will have its own event in April which would be after NY show. What is known for sure that Ford and Lincoln will be showing there? Shelby GT500? I see on the NY auto show site that Ford has two levels worth of display and 1 for Lincoln. So surely they got something planned. I just hope it won't be a dismal and pathetic show like the Chicago one with Jim Belushi. Ugh.

So fascinated with Ford's EcoBoost technology!!!

Level 3 is main show floor, all trucks are displayed on the lower level hence the two levels shown for Ford.
I fully expect Lincoln to have something, it’s their premiere site to debut big debuts.
Ford, I’d like to see the Shelby GT500 but they have sat out the show a few years so we’ll have to see when the conference schedule debuts (still no listing of them)

Re: 2018 NYC autoshow

It's also possible that the Aviator will launch earlier in China since it will be the first Lincoln produced locally and production is suppose to begin in Q1 2019 which seems to be much earlier than Chicago.
