Ford has debuted its new all-electric family SUV, the Explorer, which will only be available in Europe. The carmaker partnered with Volkswagen to create the EV, which uses the German automaker’s MEB platform. The vehicle is Ford’s first electric car to be built at scale at the company’s Cologne factory and will be the first electric Ford to use the MEB architecture. Although the Explorer places more importance on practicality, it still features an attractive design to avoid being considered dull by consumers, something that customers described Ford models as during focus groups. The five-seat Explorer was designed for Europe with practicality in mind, meaning it has a roomy three-person rear bench and a boot with over 400 liters of space. It also features a large central storage area in the front and “a private locker” hidden behind the adjustable, 14.6-inch touchscreen. The Explorer will come with Ford’s latest Sync Move infotainment software, complete with Alexa voice recognition, intelligent charger search function, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and over-the-air software updates.
