In mid-March this year, Ford announced the release of its newest addition to its lineup of electric vehicles, the Ford Explorer Electric SUV, developed jointly by Ford Europe and Volkswagen. 

As a result, the Euro-focused Ford Explorer possesses some resemblance to the Volkswagen ID.4.  After all, the upcoming electric Ford Explorer shares the Volkswagen MEB EV platform

This comes amidst the IEA (International Energy Agency)’s prediction that smaller EVs will become cheaper and the EV market will see considerable appreciation this year.

The new Explorer electric SUV should be a game-changer in the electric vehicle market, as it combines Ford's signature style and performance with the latest in EV technology. 

The Explorer Electric SUV is expected to have a battery range of around 300 miles on a single charge. This is an impressive feat, as it puts the vehicle in direct competition with other electric SUVs on the market today. 

The vehicle will also be equipped with fast-charging capabilities, allowing it to be charged up to 80% in just 45 minutes. 

The Explorer Electric SUV wears a sleek and modern exterior design, with an aerodynamic body that not only looks great but also helps to improve the vehicle's efficiency. 

The SUV will also feature Ford's Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced safety features, which includes automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and a rearview camera. 

Inside, we expect the Explorer Electric SUV will be spacious and comfortable, with seating for up to seven passengers.

The vehicle will feature a large infotainment system with a massive 14.6-inch moveable touchscreen display, as well as advanced driver assistance technology like adaptive cruise control and parking assist. The SUV is rumored to start at under $50,000. 

“Explorer is a trailblazer for a new breed of exciting Ford electric vehicles,” said Ford’s Europe General Manager Martin Sander. “Steeped in our American roots but built in Cologne for our customers in Europe, it is road trip-ready for the big adventures and fully loaded with everything our customers will need for their daily drives.”

Ford has made a commitment to electrifying its entire lineup of vehicles, and the Explorer Electric SUV is just one more step in that direction, along with similar products such as the Ford E-Transit and F-150 Lightning pickup truck

We also hear the Blue Oval is making another Euro-focused electric SUV riding on the same VW MEB architecture, which is clearly different from the promised 3-row electric version of the Explorer. 

Whether made for Europe or North America, these SUVs will make their way to Nigeria. The Explorer Electric SUV is expected to hit the market in 2023, with prices starting at around $50,000. 

This is a competitive price point for an electric SUV, and Ford is hoping that the vehicle will attract a wide range of customers who are looking for a practical and environmentally friendly SUV.
