Lincoln Motor Company has announced it is working with Rivian to develop an all-new electric vehicle featuring connected and intuitive technologies, based on Rivian’s skateboard platform.
“Working with Rivian marks a pivotal point for Lincoln as we move toward a future that includes fully electric vehicles,” said Joy Falotico, president, Lincoln Motor Company. “This vehicle will take Quiet Flight to a new place – zero emissions, effortless performance and connected and intuitive technology. It’s going to be stunning.”
The new zero-emissions vehicle is part of Ford’s recently agreed investment in Rivian and its previously announced investment of more than US$11.5bn into electrification, which includes the Mustang Mach-E and a fully electric version of the F-150 pickup.
“Our vehicle development partnership with Ford is an exciting opportunity to pair our technology with Lincoln’s vision for innovation and refinement. We are proud to collaborate on Lincoln’s first fully electric vehicle,” said Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe.
