The vision of Ford of Europe for electrification includes 16 models of cars – eight of which will be on the road by the end of this year, – said the company at its Go Dana event in Amsterdam.
These plans include a plug-in hybrid version of its SUV Kuga, its crossover inspired by Mustang, and commercial cargo transit.
The European electrification strategy Ford meets North America's plans to focus on hybrids. For example, in a separate event on Tuesday, Ford took wraps from its latest generation Escape, the 2020 North American car model, which is more sporty, loaded with technology and comes with hybrid and electric variants.
Year, Ford has launched its plans, announcing that it will gradually turn off most of the cars it sells in North America. Ford will continue to produce the Mustang and focus its remaining efforts in North America on trucks, utility vehicles and commercial vehicles, as well as the move to electric vehicles.
A striking piece of Ford's strategy for Europe, which includes a pair of all electric vehicles in the mix, namely the Mustang-eseque SUV, will be chiefly headed by Stewart Rowley.

Most vehicles introduced Tuesday in the Ford of Europe are hybrid or hybrid vehicles. Two of these vehicles – the plug-in hybrid SUV SUV and the new Hybrid Tourneo plug-in for the commercial van market – made their global debut at the Next Train.
The plug-in hybrid version of Ford's new mid-sized Corner SUV that features a 31-mile hybrid line is also presented with hybrid and hybrid Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid and Focus EcoBoost models, equipped with m-hybrid technology for optimum fuel economy. Ford has focused on the commercial end of the market as well, with plans to bring an all-electric Transit van to Europe in 2021. Ford brings the plug-in hybrid version of the Transit van to the market this year. This hybrid module has a 13.6 kWh lithium-ion battery and an EcoBoost Ford 1-liter gas engine, which acts as an extender range. The Powertrain will have an all-electric (sometimes called as zero-emission driving range) 31 miles, and a total 310-mile range using the extender range. The car is held in London, and further tests are scheduled to begin soon in Valencia, Spain and Cologne, Germany. The Ford of Europe confirmed that the often-teased electric Mustang crossover would be larger than the North American market. Ford, Ford said on Tuesday, will be able to travel 600 kilometers or 370 miles, one charge when it comes to the market in 2020, an assessment based on the European standard for fuel consumption and emissions, known as WLTP
or the World Harmonized The procedure for a light test car, is a new standard that is supposed to make European fuel economy etiquette more realistic. (In the past, the ranges in Europe have been wildly exaggerated compared to more conservative EPA ratings. Vehicles in the US use EPA estimates.
Ford said it was targeting a 300-mile range for its electric crossover in the United States. 19659014]
