Ford to launch first EV in second half
Automotive News China | 2019/6/11

Ford Motor Co. is set to start selling its first electric vehicle in China in the second half of the year.

The EV is the battery-powered version of the Ford Territory compact crossover. It has a range of 360 kilometers (224 miles) on one charge, Ford said. 

The Territory last year became the first Ford-badged passenger vehicle produced at Jiangling Motors Corp. -- Fordí»s truck venture with Changan Automobile Co. 

Like the gasoline variant, the electric Territory will also be assembled at Jiangling Motors, rather than Changan Ford Automobile Co. -- Fordí»s car partnership with Changan. 

The electric Territory is the first electrified vehicle to be launched under the product plan for China that Ford disclosed in April. 

The Dearborn, Mich., company will introduce more than 30 new and upgraded vehicles including 10 electrified vehicles under the Ford and Lincoln brands in China over the next three years. 

Ford currently markets only one electrified vehicle -- the plug-in hybrid version of the Ford Mondeo ĘC in China. 

In addition, an agreement Ford signed with Zoyte Automobile Co. in 2017 to jointly build inexpensive EVs hasní»t been approved by China regulators.

Beijing enacted a carbon credit program this year, adding pressure on Ford to accelerate the rollout of electrified vehicles in the Chinese market.
