Ford just announced a $4.5 billion investment for electrified vehicles

December 18, 2015

The company will be adding 13 new electrified vehicles to its product portfolio by 2020.

Ford has just announced a massive investment that will see the company make a new batch of electrified vehicles that will see it as the largest-ever investment in a five-year period.

“The challenge going forward isn’t who provides the most technology in a vehicle but who best organizes that technology in a way that most excites and delights people,” said Raj Nair, executive vice president, Product Development. “By observing consumers, we can better understand which features and strengths users truly use and value and create even better experiences for them going forward.”

The new vehicle, called the Focus Electric, will start production next year and will include ‘SmartGauge’ with EcoGuide LCD Instrument Cluster, which offers a multitude of customizable displays that can help the driver see real-time EV power usage to help maximize vehicle efficiency.

The new electric vehicles will also feature a new fast charge system that will charge the battery to 80 percent capacity after 30 minutes.

Ford will be planning to release 13 new vehicles that it will be adding to its portfolio by the year 2020.
