Ford to sell electric vehicles only in the UK and Europe by 2030

Ford will stop selling cars equipped with all forms of internal combustion engines in the UK and Europe by 2030 in line with the most ambitious regional electrification targets of all large manufacturers.

All passenger car models will have an electric or plug-in hybrid option by 2026, but the company will switch to 100% electric by the end of the decade, the US automaker announced Wednesday.

Ford’s European President Stuart Rowley told FT: “We expect that most vehicles will already be battery powered by 2026.

Ford is investing $22 billion in electrical technology worldwide by 2025, and this announcement makes the group that promises to sell electricity by 2030 in Europe, making it the largest automaker to date.

Volvo cars, which are smaller than Ford, are expected to be fully electric globally by 2030, and General Motors, which withdrew from Europe in 2017, expects all passenger cars to be free of emissions by 2035.

Ford’s commercial vehicles, including Transit van and Ranger pickup trucks, will have electric and hybrid options on all models by 2024, but a final phasing out date for existing engine sales has yet to be set.

By the end of the decade, two-thirds of van and pickup sales are expected to be hybrid or battery powered.

Ford’s British engine plant in Dagenham produces diesel engines for the Transit and Ranger. This means the factory has a “very important road ahead”.

He did not comment on whether Ford will make its own batteries at the current factory or continue to purchase batteries from suppliers, he added, but added that all manufacturers engine sites across Europe will be “part of the transition” to electricity.

Europe is a major market for electric vehicles, overtaking China last year as the world’s largest plug-in car market, and sales are expected to grow further as EU emission regulations tighten over the past decade.

One in ten cars sold in Europe and the United States last year were electric or plug-in hybrids as automakers increased sales to meet their 2020 CO2 targets.

The UK has already pledged to phase out the sale of all cars that only use gasoline or diesel by 2030 and ban the sale of vehicles with exhaust pipe emissions by 2035.

Rowley said that Ford did not say when to stop European imports of the classic muscle car Mustang, but said the model was included in its promise to phase out the sale of cars with engines by 2030.

Ford, which will begin delivery of Mustang Mach-E battery cars in the region later this quarter, will use Volkswagen’s electric vehicle technology to build its first European battery model in Cologne, Germany from 2023.

The pair is forming a global alliance to cut costs by sharing some technology for electrical and autonomous systems.
