Last month, reports surfaced that Lincoln was preparing to launch two new hybrids but that could be the tip of the iceberg.
According to three sources who talked to Reuters, the entire Lincoln lineup will be offered with a hybrid powertrain by 2022.
Details could be announced as soon as next month but the report goes on to suggest that Lincoln is also considering plans to introduce an electric vehicle. Little is known about the proposed vehicle but it appears there could be several under consideration.
Ford declined to comment on the report but the publication claims the company is planning to introduce plug-in hybrid variants as it launches new and redesigned models. The first plug-in hybrid is expected to be the MKC and it will reportedly be joined by a new Aviator plug-in hybrid in 2019. Lincoln is also expected to offer a hybrid version of the new Navigator.
Further down the road, the company will reportedly launch the redesigned MKZ in 2020. Two years later, we can expect to see new versions of the Continental and MKX. All these models are expected to be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
