Ford delays launch of larger, 3-row electric vehicles till 2027

NEW YORK: The Ford Motor Co said recently that it would not launch its new three-row electric vehicles in 2025 but would offer the models in 2027 in order for the electric car market to develop more.

Despite the re-timing, Ford will continue the development of its Oakville, Ontario assembly plant in Canada to produce next-generation EVs, along with greenfield construction and conversion of existing assembly plants.

Further, the Dearborn, Michigan-based company shared its plan to launch hybrid powertrains across its Ford Blue lineup in North America.

Additionally, the automaker is also expanding its Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake to produce an all-new electric commercial vehicle for Ford Pro customers.

The company also stated that equipment installation at its Tennessee Electric Vehicle Centre at BlueOval City is underway, and the plant will start delivering Ford's next-generation electric truck in 2026.
