Ford’s President and CEO Jim Farley shared his thoughts by saying, “I am delighted to see the . pace of change in Europe ⁠— challenging our entire industry to build better, cleaner and more digital vehicles. Ford is all-in and moving fast to meet the demand in Europe and around the globe.”

The company reaffirmed its commitment to sustainability and expects to deliver a six percent EBIT margin In Europe in 2023.

Ford released the all-electric Mach-E in 2021 and Mach-E GT in Europe this year. It also has plans to unveil the E-Transit in the next quarter. 

A medium-sized crossover will begin production in Cologne, Germany, by next year, and another electric vehicle will be added to the plant’s lineup by 2024. Ford plans to invest close to $2 billion to build electric vehicles at the Ford Cologne Electrification Center.

Meanwhile, across Europe, the Ford Puma’s electric version will be made available by 2024. 

The Ford Puma was one-of its best-selling vehicles in Europe in 2021. The electric version will be manufactured in Craiova, Romania. The automaker has big plans for its Romanian facility, as the company will roll out commercial and electric vehicles from the plant. Ford Otosan, a joint venture between Ford Motor Company and Koc Holding, will be responsible for maintaining the facility. 

To build on their ongoing partnership, Ford, SK On Co., Ltd. and Koç Holding also signed a non-binding MoU to start a new business venture in Turkey. Together, with the support of the Turkish Government, they aim to build one of the largest commercial vehicle battery production sites in Europe.

The first two models will be available by 2023 while the last two will go on road by 2024. 

Stuart Rowley, chair, Ford of Europe, summed up the company’s long-term plan, “These new Ford electric vehicles signal what is nothing less than the total transformation of our brand in Europe a new generation of zero-emission vehicles, optimized for a connected world, offering our customers truly outstanding user experiences.”

EVs in Europe

According to data compiled by analyst Matthias Schmidt, more than 20 percent of vehicles sold across Britain and Europe in December 2021 were electric. In a heartening turn of events, Europeans seem to prefer electric vehicles (EVs) over diesel-powered ones. Last year, Europe set a new record as sales declined for traditional fossil fuel cars, with battery power dominating the landscape. 

Laws supporting electric vehicles coupled with government incentives and benefits have seen Europe take to sustainability in a big way. Tesla was the best-selling EV brand in Europe in 2021. 

According to Schmidt Automotive, battery operated vehicle sales will continue to grow and achieve a market share of over 60% in Western Europe by 2030. 

As electric vehicles pick up profit and customers, Rowley states, “It’s also about the pressing need for greater care of our planet, making a positive contribution to society and reducing emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.”
