Re: BEYOND UNCOVERED: Lincoln's Future Lineup SPECULATION

Lincoln will have the Mach 1 to play with which I'm looking forward to. The sedan will be extinct within the next decade so it's not something they need to keep investing in, especially as a brand appealing to first time customers. Even the Germans know this which is why their EVs are Crossovers instead of Tesla competitors. I use to be a Tesla fan but I'm convinced it has made the wrong early bets and their cars are becoming more outdated with many missing features...but I'm glad they started things off. At this point I know I will never buy a Tesla because I already found more appealing EVs from Audi...and likely soon from Ford/Lincoln. And personally I'm really excited by what Ford might be doing with Hybrids, could be the first automaker to find an EV solution that works without any compromise.

I can only think of hundreds of millions of dollars of losses if Ford developed such a vehicle. Fortunately, we know Ford won't develop such a car.

now I'm wondering if the 90% CSuvs&trucks referred to domestic PRODUCTION??
checked the 2017/2016 sales totals
~2,600,000 so 10% = ~260,000 = one factory-double-shift worth
I might vote: FlatRock
tho now wondering if the 10% is only for produced AND sold domestically?

Flat Rock produces the Mustang and the Continental. By 2020 will produce the EV crossover, too. But the Mustang + Continental production is not in those numbers... are in the 150-170000 range. So, I think the Focus could be imported from China to complete that 10% of cars Ford plan to sell in NorthAmerica by 2020.

The Fusion, that is selling around 200000 units a year, is not an option in this scenario

It's coming......and FAST!! FordLincoln can't avoid the future.....and being late will be painful. Cars with combustion engines will quickly become like rotary dial/analog phones vs digital/smart phones.

Production of the new Audi GT sedan starts in 2020

I don't remember [never really knew] when the MKZ & iirc before that, the Fusion partially, were built at FlatRock
so not bothering with adding before 2014...

from here^ on "down", all FOUR could be built at FRAP

if Fomoco can afford to make a 2-door Bronco, that W0N'T/CAN'T Be the best seller!!;
they need to find the $$$$ to make at least one Lincoln CAR
...and be satisfied IF it breaks even

Don't mind at all quote me anywhere if you need to!

I still don't believe they are cancelling the Continental after 2 years.
