Automotive News reported in December that Oakville was the likeliest landing spot for the Aviator EV, whose production Ford delayed last year by 18 months.
Several more Lincoln EV crossovers, including potential replacements for the compact Corsair and the midsized Nautilus, could be built in Oakville in 2025-2026, said the two sources, who cited internal planning documents. Production plans for those models have not been finalized.
Several of the smaller Lincoln EVs will share an improved version of the EV platform that underpins the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the sources said.
A larger Lincoln SUV, a battery-powered companion to the big Navigator, is scheduled to go into production in 2026, the sources said. It will share a new dedicated EV truck platform with the next-generation Ford F-150 Lightning, the sources said.
Ford's plans to transform the Lincoln brand in North America into a mostly electric family of premium utility vehicles parallels an effort at General Motors, where the Cadillac brand has embarked on a similar makeover, starting this year with the mid-size Lyriq electric crossover.
Eventually, Cadillac is expected to field a full portfolio of electric utility vehicles, GM executives have previously said, including a full-size Escalade EV that is expected to share its underpinnings with the Hummer and Silverado EVs.
Cadillac also plans to introduce an ultra-luxury sedan called Celestiq in 2023.
