Lincoln To Debut First Fully Electric Car Next Year

Lincoln will debut its first fully electric car next year to coincide with its centenary.

Lincoln expects half of its global volume will be zero-emissions vehicles by mid-decade. It plans to electrify its portfolio of vehicles by 2030. It is part of the company's Ford+ plan and Ford Motor company's planned investment of more than $30 billion in electrification by 2025.

The new rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive battery electric flexible architecture will enable the company to deliver four new and distinct fully electric vehicles, Lincoln said in a statement.

Lincoln will also introduce new advanced driver-assist features called Lincoln ActiveGlide. The hands-free, semi-autonomous technology is designed for highway driving. It uses cameras, radar and driver monitoring technologies to allow a driver to operate hands-free on prequalified sections of divided highways called Hands-Free Blue Zones.

This summer, 2021 Lincoln Nautilus clients will receive their first software updates, including enhancements to their navigation system, Apple CarPlay and digital owner's manual.

A new update to the hands-free digital assistant Alexa arrives this fall, bringing the seamless operations that customers have come to expect with their personal and home devices.
