‘Ford’ opens next-gen EV factory in Germany

This week, Ford opened its new EV production facility in Cologne. The move is part of the American automaker’s push to make its entire European passenger vehicle lineup all-electric by 2030.

Originally opened back in 1930, Ford has spent the past two years — and $2bn — redeveloping the facility into a solely EV manufacturing centre.

The Cologne Electric Vehicle Centre will produce Ford’s next-gen EVs, the first of which will be the electric Explorer, followed by a yet-to-be-named sports crossover.

The plant is expected to churn out over 250,000 vehicles per year, a big chunk of Ford’s target to build two million EVs globally each year by the end of 2026.
