Now take a look over the press release at the end of this report. The Lincoln Motor Company doesn’t mention Rivian once, but the press release does include four electric vehicles and rear- or all-wheel- drive. Lincoln doesn’t say if we’re dealing with the GE2, TE1, the outgoing GE1 of the Mustang Mach-E or whatever the platform of the F-150 Lighting is called. But the writing is on the wall. More to the point, the luxurious brother of the Ford Motor Company will electrify its entire range of vehicles by the end of the current decade.
“Electrification will take Quiet Flight to a new level with the smooth, exhilarating take-off feel and serene quietness our clients expect from a Lincoln,” said president Joy Falotico. “Our world-class vehicles, effortless services, and advanced connected technology will allow us to create an always-on relationship and help transform the Lincoln brand for the future.”
As far as guesstimates are concerned, the most obvious Lincoln EV could be a rebadged Mustang Mach-E with the GT dual-motor performance option. Another possibility is the Navigator, which shares the same T-series ladder frame as the F-150 pickup truck. Considering that Ford quotes 563 all-electric ponies, 775 pound-feet (1,051 Nm) of torque, and a driving range of 300 miles (483 kilometers), the Navigator-E certainly makes a lot of sense.
