Ford wants to compete with the Chevy Bolt EV

According to AutomobileMag, citing a ‘source’, Ford will unveil a 200 mile + electric vehicle later this year. It is designed to compete with the Chevy Bolt, and may come to market in 2017 which is the same year Tesla is planning to launch their Model 3 (the under $40,000 long range EV that lit the fire under GM).

The ‘source’ made no indication that the Ford EV concept will be ready for the New York International Auto Show in April, and actually, it’s more likely the EV will be unveiled at the LA Auto Show in November. After all, California is the hot-bed for electric vehicles right now!

Also of note, at the end of the AutomobileMag article, it states “Ford’s official word is that the story is not accurate.”
