With a range of over 300 miles, Ford's new 'trailblazer' SUV could be a welcome family-friendly addition to the EV market.
Arriving in 2024, the Explorer focuses on a smart design with a 14.6in moveable touchscreen, bags of storage and wireless charging points.
The European-built EV will mark a milestone for Ford's future portfolio of electric passenger vehicles.
How much will it cost?
Official pricing is yet to be announced by Ford, but they have placed it in the space between the £30,000+ Ford Kuga and the £50,000 electric Mustang Mach-E.
From this, we can estimate a price tag of around £40,000 which is comparable to existing ICE SUVs such as the Audi Q5 (£44,000), Volvo XC60 (£43,000), Kia Sorento (£39,000) and BMW X3 (44,000).
Competition in the worldwide EV market will continue to escalate as we get closer to the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles.
Existing competition for the Ford Explorer includes the BYD Atto3 Crossover (£36,000-39,000), Kia EV6 (£44,000+), and the ever-popular Tesla Model Y (£45,000+).
