The Cologne plant is being revamped and Ford's first electric car based on the MEB platform will be produced in Germany.

According to a report by Electrive, Ford has recently chosen its factory in Cologne, Germany to produce its first electric car with MEB platform. Ford plans to release this electric car in 2023 and deliver more than 600,000 units in the following years. Ford claims that this model will combine practical and spacious space with the advantages of electric cars.

In June this year, Ford signed a strategic alliance agreement with Volkswagen to cooperate in the fields of electrification, commercial vehicles, and autonomous driving. In addition, Ford will enhance the endurance of electric vehicles, including Mustang Mach-E, and provide electric versions of Ford Transit and F-150 for commercial vehicle users in the next two years. The Volkswagen Group describes Ford’s application of the MEB platform as “an important cornerstone of the Volkswagen Group’s electric vehicle strategy”.
