Ford ups electrification investment to $11B, plans 16 battery-electric vehicles by 2022
Automotive News
- Michael Martinez - January 14, 2018


Ford Motor Co. on Sunday said it's more than doubling its investment in electrification and planning to roll out 16 fully electric vehicles within five years. It said the first of those EVs would arrive in 2020.

The automaker said it would spend $11 billion on the technology by 2022 and introduce 40 electrified vehicles globally within that time. Executives said 16 would be battery electrics and 24 would be hybrids or plug-in hybrids, without specifying how many of each type. It's unclear how many of them would be sold in the U.S.

Ford had committed in late 2015 to spending $4.5 billion to develop 13 electrified vehicles over a five-year period, including one battery electric: a 300-mile range crossover expected in 2020.

Ford announced the expanded plans after revealing the 2019 Ranger, Edge ST and Mustang Bullitt the Detroit auto show.

"We're all in, and the only question is will the customers be there with us?" Bill Ford, Ford's executive chairman, told reporters.

The announcement comes three months after Ford set up a group of employees, dubbed Team Edison, to study vehicle electrification. Its crosstown rival General Motors has vowed to introduce at least 20 fully electric or fuel-cell models by 2023. GM has not put a dollar amount on its investment plans.

"We see it as an increase in an important part of where we are going forward," said Raj Nair, Ford's president of North America.

Ford hinted at a performance battery electric vehicle called Mach 1, coming in 2020. Nair said the vehicle could be a crossover based on the Mustang.

Basing EVs on existing nameplates that customers know, such as the Mustang, can help the company make the vehicles more successful, Bill Ford said.

"The idea is we're going to electrify our most iconic vehicles," he said.

Ford previously has said it would sell hybrid versions of the Mustang and F-150 by 2020.

Best Ford news I've heard in 4 years, I guess we can thank GM for lighting a fire under them.

I'm sure Fomoco has been working on just about every development that can be reasonably expected to bear fruit (profit) BUT
it wouldn't surprise me At ALL if using the Mach1 name was finalized withIN the last WEEK (or 2 )

Re: Mach1: help Ford do the right thing...

Don't know how long the Mach name has been in place, but I have been hinting at Ford's big development for BEV for quite some time now, mostly in response to all the criticism that Ford is not doing enough post GM's recent announcement. I even stated that EVERYTHING is being studied for BEV, and with this announcement, that should not be a surprise.

Sure, Ford's program is also much further behind and Ford's CEO was fired because Wallstreet was not happy with Ford's tepid BEV plans. Actually, they only had 1 BEV plan until the new CEO.

Believe what you want my friend, but I have assisted in project studies over a year ago personally. And Ford redeployed their EEE building into the FEL Ford Engineering Lab for the sole purpose of electrification back in early 2015, which certainly would have included far more than 1 BEV from Fields.....LMFAO

Update Jan 14 6:00 p.m. est: Mike Levine clarified(?) his tweet in a message to Jalopnik, saying Ford is “researching the name Mach 1 to see how customers respond,” for a high performance battery electric SUV.
