Ford unveiled the new all-electric Explorer – a bold new electric vehicle that combines German engineering with striking American style.
Explorer is the first of Ford’s groundbreaking new electric vehicles and paves the path for the brand’s comprehensive transformation in Europe. The midsize crossover offers two rows of seating for five passengers and is geared to take families on an excursion.
The German-designed and -built all-electric Explorer provides an exceptional digital experience, allowing drivers and passengers to remain connected and comfortable while on the road. A SYNC Move supersized movable touchscreen and fully linked infotainment system with interior-tailored audio, wireless app integration, and advanced driver assistance technology are included as standard features.
The capacity of about 470 litres in five-seat configuration makes Ford’s newest electric car excellent for urban and extra-urban exploration. Ford’s all-electric Explorer establishes a new benchmark with a 17-litre console that can accommodate a 15-inch laptop, a separate storage compartment, and optional hands-free access to the trunk.
The futuristic exterior design is matched by an interior with luxury materials and features, such as contoured sport seats and a sophisticated soundbar, that are more typical of revolutionary concept cars than family vehicles. All of this is complemented by the ability to fast charge from 10 to 80% in just 25 minutes 1 and access to 500,000 charging points in Europe by the end of next year.
Offered in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, the Explorer has heated front seats and steering wheel, a massaging driver’s seat, and climate control that allows the driver and front passenger to select their preferred temperature. Advanced driver assistance systems include, for the first time on a Ford in Europe, Assisted Lane Change for changing lanes smoothly and safely at the push of an indicator stalk, and Clear Exit Assist, which alerts drivers of approaching cyclists before opening doors in densely populated urban areas.
