Ford Motor Company has announced its EV roadmap for the coming years for the European market. The Blue Oval will have a total of nine EVs there by 2024, and it is planning to sell more than 600,000 electric vehicles in the continent by 2026. The EV lineup will consist of four electric SUVs, along with five light commercial EVs.

The electric crossovers include Ford Puma EV and Mustang Mach-E, along with two new models. Only the silhouettes of the SUVs and their LED DRLs are visible in the official teaser. The manufacturer did reveal that one of the two new electric SUVs will be a midsize crossover, while the other will be a performance SUV.

The upcoming Ford midsize electric SUV is expected to debut in 2022, with a 500 km (around 311 km) driving range, and it will enter production in 2023. As for the new sport crossover, its production will commence in 2024. Both EVs are likely to be underpinned by Volkswagen Group’s ‘MEB’ dedicated EV platform, and they will be manufactured at Ford’s plant in Cologne, Germany.
