Lincoln Crossover EV
NEXT STAGE: New in 2022
Ford Motor Co. and Rivian canceled plans to jointly develop an electric vehicle for the Lincoln brand because of the coronavirus crisis. However, Lincoln officials have said the brand still plans to have its own EV eventually and could potentially co-develop a product with Rivian in the future but shelved the project because of the "current environment."
The EV developed with Rivian, announced in January 2020, was to be Lincoln's first battery-electric model. It would have been built on Rivian's flexible skateboard platform, but neither company had provided details on what type of vehicle it would be, where it would be assembled or when it would go on sale. Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe was quoted as saying the vehicle would have been "in the SUV space" and "very different" from Rivian's own R1S utility.
Meanwhile, Ford- and Lincoln-badged midsize battery-electric crossovers are expected for the 2023 model year, as Automotive News reported in summer 2019. The vehicles will be built in Flat Rock, Mich., with production starting in late 2022 or early 2023. The Lincoln vehicle will be similar in size to the Nautilus, although it will sit on a dedicated battery-electric platform.
