Similar Volvo and several other premium brands, Lincoln has plans to go entirely electric, offering only hybrid versions of its entire vehicle lineup.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as Lincoln already offers a hybrid version of the MKZ and there are reports of a hybrid Navigator SUV, but could an entirely hybrid lineup give the brand an edge over Cadillac and other luxury brands?
According to , each model in the Lincoln lineup that’s redesigned in the future will get a hybrid version, and the first all-new hybrid Lincoln models to arrive will be the hybrid Navigator and MKC crossover. A hybrid version of the upcoming Aviator crossover is schedules to arrive in 2019 and will be followed by a new MKZ in 2020, as well as a redesigned Continental in 2022.
The overall plan is part of Ford Motors’ grand goal to offer hybrid versions of all of its U.S. models by 2022. The American automaker could also introduce a fully-electric Lincoln to secure the brand’s future in ever-so-important China.
