New partnership will allow Lincoln to bring to market the brand’s first all-electric vehicle.
Lincoln has announced a partnership with Rivian to develop an all-new electric vehicle, which will be part of Ford’s previously announced investment of more than $11.5 billion into electrification (including the Mustang Mach-E and a fully electric version of the F-150).
“Working with Rivian marks a pivotal point for Lincoln as we move toward a future that includes fully electric vehicles,” said Joy Falotico, president, The Lincoln Motor Company. “This vehicle will take Quiet Flight to a new place – zero emissions, effortless performance and connected and intuitive technology. It’s going to be stunning.”
The Lincoln battery electric vehicle will be built off of Rivian’s skateboard platform. “Our vehicle development partnership with Ford is an exciting opportunity to pair our technology with Lincoln’s vision for innovation and refinement. We are proud to collaborate on Lincoln’s first fully electric vehicle,” said Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe.
