- lincoln will release five new electric vehicles by the end of 2026, three anonymous sources told reuters.
- the first lincoln ev will be a similar size to the three-row aviator when it begins production in late 2024.
- an electric counterpart to the navigator will arrive by 2026, riding on the next-generation ford f-150 lightning's dedicated ev truck platform.
lincoln announced last summer that by 2030 it would exclusively sell all-electric vehicles, but a new report from reuters suggests that a full lineup of electric crossovers will arrive far sooner, with at least five evs due by the end of 2026. lincoln does not currently sell an ev—the plug-in-hybrid aviator and corsair can both go more than 20 miles on electric power alone—but will soon have an ev for each segment it currently competes in.
the first electric lincoln to arrive, according to three anonymous sources cited by reuters, will be approximately the size of the three-row aviator. it is expected to begin production in late 2024 or early 2025 at the oakville, ontario, plant, to which ford has designated $1.5 billion to adapt from building gas cars to evs. this will likely be the suv—possibly called “mark e”—that lincoln has said will debut this year.
the oakville plant will also allegedly start building electric successors to the compact corsair and mid-size nautilus in 2025 and 2026. reuters' sources said these plans have not been finalized, but they are likely to ride on an updated version of the ford mustang mach e's electric platform.
2026 will also see the arrival of an electric counterpart to the full-size navigator, which will be based on the dedicated ev truck platform set to underpin the next-generation ford f-150 lightning. lincoln's electrification is part of ford's $30 billion investment in electric vehicles and batteries through 2030, and ford is aiming to reach an annual production capacity of 600,000 evs globally within the next two years. the lineup of electric lincolns will go toe to toe with the cadillac evs arriving in the coming years, including the lyriq suv set to go on sale this year.
