Lincoln, the luxury brand of Ford, has announced that it will show off an “all-electric concept vehicle” on April 20 as a way to tease its upcoming electric offering. In a short video, the company shows off a partial outline of the vehicle, which will likely be a smaller SUV or crossover since the company doesn’t currently make sedans (sad news for anyone like me who would love a Hyundai-esque the 80’s Continental revival).
There are currently no all-electric Lincolns, although the company does offer three plug-in hybrids, if Electrek points out† Last year, the company announced his plans to “electrify its entire portfolio of vehicles by 2030” and promised that its first full EV would “debut” in 2022.

As a concept car, what Lincoln shows next week won’t actually be for sale. However, the company’s announcement says it will serve as “inspiration for the brand’s all-electric vehicles to come in the near future,” which hopefully means the company will announce an EV by the end of this year that will actually drive you. can buy (if your wallets are deep enough, that is).
Ford already has two EV platforms that could be used for future electric luxury SUVs. It seems possible that the company could announce an electric Navigator based on the F-150 Lightning (which would be an interesting answer to GM’s electric Hummer) and a crossover based on the Mustang Mach-E in the near future. This concept reveal will likely offer at least some insight into the automaker’s plans.
