Ford launches Explorer EV built in Europe

Ford just released the Explorer EV model that was built in Europe. Being available in the market this year, check out the news!

THE Ford had already shown its next electric vehicle on which it was working in partnership with Volkswagen. Many wondered how it would be different compared to the Volkswagen ID.4, which shares the same MEB platform.

Ford decided on a radical change, and the all-electric Explorer doesn't reveal its origins. Ford says the Explorer is just the first in a line of new electric vehicles that leverage the brand's American roots but are designed, engineered and built for the European market in Germany.

FoMoCo designed the Explorer EV as a fully equipped mid-size crossover for families and adventures. The electric SUV promises a “great digital experience” thanks to unique software features and connected technologies.

While it's built on Volkswagen's MEB platform, it wouldn't suffer from the same software issues as its partner ID. range of electric vehicles.

The all-electric Explorer combines a massive mobile SYNC Move touchscreen and a fully connected infotainment system with wireless app integration and advanced assistive technologies.

The 15″ movable touchscreen can smoothly slide up and down to suit the driver and hides a private locker storage space for valuables.

The SYNC Move infotainment system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The exterior design presents a new interpretation of Ford's iconic American SUV for the electric age. Instead of a traditional grille, Ford speaks in a design.

Although the automaker does not give technical details, the Explorer EV will be a true family vehicle. The storage compartment has a capacity of 470 liters in a five-seat configuration.

The cabin also features a spacious center console between the driver and front seat passenger that can accommodate a 15-inch laptop.

Ford promises the Explorer will offer a premium experience thanks to quality materials and sculpted sport seats.

The Ford Explorer will be able to fast charge from 10% to 80% in just 25 minutes, as fast as the updated Volkswagen ID.3. This leads us to believe that it will also support 170kW DC fast charging and has a similar battery capacity of 77kWh.

Ford promises the Explorer EV will have access to 500,000 charging points across Europe. Charging at home is not forgotten as Explorer owners can schedule charging and pre-heat the cabin.

Ford Explorer is the first electric vehicle assembled at the Ford Cologne EV Center in Germany, with the American automaker aiming to offer an all-electric portfolio by 2030.

Customers can experience Explorer virtual electric test drives on their desktop or mobile device in a variety of driving environments.

O Ford Explorer EV will be available to order later this year in two versions, Explorer EV and Explorer Premium, with prices expected to start below €45,000 (US$ 48,500) equivalent to 254,435.85.
