Report: Ford is working on a Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3 long-range EV called the Model E

AutomotiveNews reports that Ford plans to continue with their idea of producing a long-range EV competitor to the Chevrolet Bolt and the Tesla Model 3. Naturally, the Ford car expected to be called the Model E.

Initially, several announcements from Ford’s executive team didn’t exactly express high hopes for the EV market. But due to changes in the trend and demand, Ford decided to change their outlook on the matter, beginning with CEO Mark Field’s confirmation of the Model E, as well as his desire to make Ford a “leader in electric vehicles.”

The plan is to offer a 200-mile range and will be built in Mexico, with aspirations to sell as many as 50,000 units annually.

Not much else is known.
