Rivian and Ford will work together to develop an unprecedented electric car to be sold under the blue oval logo and built on Rivian’s flexible platform.
Ford has confirmed that Lincoln will bring an all-electric vehicle for its luxury brand, fully inspired by the R1S and Mustang Mach-E. The concept will bring traditional traits of a combined truck and SUV into direct competition with the Rivian truck.
Ford also makes it clear that the investment in Rivian is unrelated to the $11 billion announced to create a portfolio of entirely electric vehicles by 2022. Other models are to come, including the F-150 EV and Mustang Mach-E already released.
