Ford’s Newest EV Is Powered By Volkswagen. It Could Be The Best EV Marriage Yet

From Transport Evolved.

So far, all of Ford’s electric vehicles have been built in-house, using Ford’s own technology and platforms.

But in Europe, Volkswagen has long promised we’d see not one but two all-electric models produced on Volkswagen’s MEB platform.

Today (or earlier this week for those watching later in the week), Ford unveiled the first of those vehicles – the all-new All-electric Explorer.

And we think it could be quite the ride.
