Ford in talks with Volkswagen to develop second EV in Europe
Ford Motor could build more than one electric vehicle based on Volkswagen Group's EV platform MEB, Ford of Europe President Stuart Rowley told to a German business paper Handelsblatt.
To make only one model made no sense financially, and a decision about whether to build a second model could happen soon.
«Yes, we are in talks about this» Rowley told the paper.
Ford said in July that it will use VW's modular electric toolkit to design a new battery-electric vehicle for its European operations.
The automaker said it expects to deliver more than 600,000 MEB-based vehicles in Europe over a six-year period starting in 2023.
