Ford today revealed a new electric Explorer (based on the VW MEB platform), the first of a wave of electric vehicles from Ford, built in Germany and designed for Europe.
The mid-size crossover has seats for five and is equipped with advanced driver assistance technology, a movable 15-inch touchscreen, wireless app integration, and a fully connected infotainment system. The all-electric Explorer can be fast charged from 10-80% in 25 minutes and features cabin storage with a private locker and 17-litre central console.
The Ford Explorer EV has a length of less than 4.5 meters, making it slightly shorter than the Volkswagen ID.4 or Skoda Enyaq. Later this year, two trim levels of the Explorer - Explorer and Explorer Premium - with RWD and AWD, will become available for purchase in European markets.
Customers can experience virtual electric Explorer test drives and order the vehicle later this year. Pricing is anticipated from less than €45,000.
