Ford Leans In To End-To-End Electrification Future

July 10, 2018 | News Brief | Ford announced the end of an era a few months ago. The auto maker would phase out cars from its catalogue—except for the Ford Mustang, of course—and focus on SUVs, vans, and crossover vehicles. But along with the change came another shift in focus. Ford is going “all in” on electric vehicles. “With [Ford CEO Jim] Hackett, we’re all in. We’re going to be bigger and we want to change the process,” Ted Cannis, Ford’s global director of battery electric vehicles, told Engadget. The advances in EV technology along with customer demand is driving the shift, Cannis said. And Ford isn’t dabbling. As CEO, Hackett is planning an end-to-end focus on electrification. The entire organization is moving to bring electrification to the road, Engadget reports.
