Electric Ford Puma to be launched in 2024 alongside six other new EVs

Ford is scaling up its electric car plans across Europe

Ford has announced that its best-selling Puma will be available as an EV from 2024. 

The Puma crossover is now Ford’s best-selling car in Europe, with more than 130,000 examples being sold last year. It launched in 2019 with Ford’s first mild-hybrid powertrains, and this new electric model is set to be sold alongside hybrid versions. The EV is expected to be produced on the same platform as the current car too. 

Alongside the Puma, Ford has today said that it will launch a further six electric models by 2024 – including two more cars and four commercial vehicles.

In 2023, Ford has confirmed it will introduce an ‘all-new electric medium-sized crossover,’ with the firm targeting a range of 500km (310 miles). This is likely to be the first Ford EV built on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, as the two automotive giants collaborate to help share costs. This new electric model is set to be revealed later in 2022. 

A second EV – set to be a ‘sports crossover’ – is due in 2024 and will be produced at the brand’s Cologne Electrification Centre in Germany. 

Moving over to electric vans, while Ford is soon launching the E-Transit as its first commercial EV, in 2023 the brand’s line-up will expand with EV versions of the next-generation Transit Custom (the best-selling van in the UK by some margin) and the Tourneo Custom passenger model. In 2024, electric versions of the Transit Courier and Tourneo Courier will follow.

Stuart Rowley, chair, Ford of Europe, said: ““Our march toward an all-electric future is an absolute necessity for Ford to meet the mobility needs of customers across a transforming Europe.

“These new Ford electric vehicles signal what is nothing less than the total transformation of our brand in Europe – a new generation of zero-emission vehicles, optimised for a connected world, offering our customers truly outstanding user experiences.”

By 2026 Ford is planning to sell 600,000 electric cars annually in Europe, with the brand aiming to go carbon-neutral across its operations by 2035.
