Ford Says Their Upcoming EVs Will Be ‘Exhilarating’, Teases The Testing Process

Ford took to social media to tease their upcoming range of electric vehicles. The video puts an emphasis on the testing phase of an SUV, which appears to be the same prototype Ford teased in September as the Mustang-inspired electric crossover, and which we believe (…hope) to be a mule cobbled up from old Escape parts.

In the caption attached to the clip that’s titled “don’t miss an EV update”, the automaker highlighted: “Ford electric vehicles are coming – and we promise you’re in for an exhilarating ride”.

We asked about the prototype(s) depicted in the video, with a Ford representative telling CarScoops that “[It] isn’t a specific product. The video was about showing how Ford is approaching the production of electric vehicles; they will be exhilarating. And we are electrifying our most popular nameplates.”

The Blue Oval had said earlier this year that it will reveal the electric SUV in 2019. While nothing is official yet, we could get a first glimpse of the electric Mustang-inspired crossover either in production trim or as a thinly veiled concept as early as the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.. Either way, Ford has confirmed that it will go on sale in North America in the fall of 2020.

Known internally as the CX430, the zero-emission Tesla Model X, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi E-Tron and Mercedes-Benz EQC rival is believed to use two electric motors, powered by a battery pack that will give it a range of at least 300 miles (483 km) on a single charge. Designed to cope with temperatures as low as -40 F (-40 C), the battery will probably support DC fast charging, as Ford described the charging experience as being “effortless”.

    Oh….Oh, my. That 2004 grille popping out of that camo…no. Just no.

      It’s a test-mule, underneath it’s a Frankenstein Ford Escape body.

    By the comment “Known internally as the CX430, the zero-emission Tesla Model X, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi E-Tron and Mercedes-Benz EQC rival” are you insinuating this will be a $80K plus model?

    “… the zero-emission Tesla Model X Model Y, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi E-Tron and Mercedes-Benz EQC rival…”

    FTFY.

    Ford’s upcoming products excite me greatly. Just too bad the quality control has been so poor on recent product launches. But they have the most exciting product lineup coming out between 2020 and 2021.

    New F-150, new performance EV suv, new Bronco, new Fusion wagon to take on the Subaru Outback, new Puma, possibly a new Mustang, new Edge, new Mini Bronco, all in the span of just 2 years.

      They excitingly always play catch up. They wait to see what other car companies do in terms of design and just copy them…(except for Mustang and the GT). Would Ford ever have offered EV products? never… they just waited to see if Tesla failed or may even have investors who shorted Teslas shares….they make lousy products ..they are even copying a Subaru and bringing in a outback competitor LOL….Chevrolet is OK…but if they had any common sense they can make the impala a wagon and kept the mailbu as as sedan..Dodge always had the balls to walk their own path..will always respect them for that..

      Though I agree with the gist of your comment, Ford’s stock hasn’t reflected the same optimism.

  • p23w

    The only thing “exciting”about these vehicles will be the logjam at charging stations and the KW per hour rates that skyrocket. Thoroughly unimpressed.

  • Paul

    The key word here is “teases” I guess.
