Ford is not a simple spectator of the automobile electric revolution, but a committed and passionate actor. The company has made the bold choice to put electric mobility at the heart of its strategy by committing to manufacturing 600,000 electric vehicles by the end of 2023 and, by 2026, more than 2 million per year! Additionally, Ford said it would invest $22 billion in electric technologies by 2025 to support its goals.
Ford plans a complete transition to electric in Europe. From 2030, all of their passenger vehicles will be 100% electric, and this will be followed by a complete transition to utility vehicles from 2035.
This approach is based on a clear vision: that of a future where mobility is not only more efficient, but also cleaner and more sustainable.

Ford’s electric range is expanding, marked by the arrival of innovative and high-performance electric models.
The Mustang Mach-E, a true symbol of this ambition, combines the power of sports cars with the sustainability of electric technology. Its careful and sculpted design is a true statement of intention, asserting its bold and innovative character. Equipped with cutting-edge technologies, it is as efficient on the road as it is environmentally friendly. Another force? A range of up to 600 kilometers. An impressive figure that makes the Mustang Mach-E a preferred choice for long journeys. Faithful to the spirit of the Mustang, it perfectly combines power, performance and durability.
The new E-Transit, launched in 2022, marks a major milestone in Ford’s history. As the brand’s first fully electric utility vehicle, the E-Transit demonstrates innovation and durability, while maintaining the strength, performance and versatility that have made Ford known in the utility industry.
The 2024 horizon promises to be resolutely electric for Ford with the arrival of seven new electric models. Among them, two new SUVs will enrich the range, including the 100% Electric Ford Explorer, faithful heir to the iconic model which has already sold 7 million copies. The Puma, already appreciated for its distinctive style and performance, will also be available in a 100% electric version. At the same time, Ford’s utility range will be expanded with four new electric vehicles, once again illustrating the brand’s commitment.

One of the major challenges of electric mobility lies in vehicle charging. Ford understands this and offers smart, fast and convenient charging solutions, designed to make life easier for electric vehicle owners.
The flagship solution is the BlueOval charging network. This constantly expanding network of charging stations offers a practical solution for recharging your vehicle while traveling. With more than 500,000 charging points throughout Europe, including 60,000 nationally including IONITY chargers, the BlueOval network provides drivers of Ford electric vehicles with fast and efficient charging, wherever they are.
But Ford doesn’t stop there. The brand also offers home charging solutions. The Ford Connected Wallbox charger, for example, makes it easy to charge your car at home. It offers much faster charging than standard household outlets and can be controlled remotely via the FordPass app.

In addition to its commitment to electric mobility, Ford doesn’t just have a vision for sustainability, it takes action.
The company is aware of the impact of each decision it makes and strives to minimize the negative consequences on the environment. It adopts a responsible approach, favoring the use of steel and aluminum with a low carbon footprint. Through the First Movers Coalition, Ford is committing that by 2030, at least 10% of the steel and aluminum it uses in its vehicles will be nearly carbon neutral.
The brand also shows its commitment to sustainable water management. Since 2000, Ford has reduced the use of fresh water in its manufacturing processes by 78%, saving billions of liters of water per year. His next goal? Completely eliminate fresh water withdrawals from its manufacturing processes on a global scale.
Finally, let’s highlight the importance that Ford places on the use of renewable energies. The company has chosen to ensure that 100% of electricity consumption on its European production sites comes from renewable sources.
Electric mobility is no longer a distant vision, but an undeniable reality that is redefining the automotive industry. Ford’s commitment to this revolution is unequivocal. The brand positions itself as a true pioneer, not only in terms of performance and technology, but also in terms of sustainability and environmental responsibility. The road to a fully electric future is already mapped out, and Ford is one of those companies in Europe that is at the forefront of this transition.
