Ford plans to only sell electrified cars in Europe by 2030. The car manufacturer says it will only sell all-electric and hybrid passenger vehicles as part of its net-zero strategy.
This is part of a larger European Union push to have the industry be more sustainable and environmentally friendly by 2030. Ford is investing $1 billion into its assembly plant in Cologne, Germany to pick up the output of these vehicles. This is only one small part of the $29 billion global investment in electric automobile production through to 2025.
“We are charging into an all-electric future in Europe,” said Ford of Europe president Stuart Rowley, according to Engadget.
The first car coming out of this new assembly plant is expected to arrive in 2030.
“We will offer an exceptional range of electrified vehicles, supported by customer-centric digital services and experiences, allowing our customers to come with us on the journey to a fully electric future, starting right now with the launch of the all-electric Mustang Mach-E,” said
Most recently, Ford has launched its Mastung Mach-E to much fanfare. While it is not on the market yet, this fast electric car is expected to be available in Europe in 2021.
