The first Ford EV to use Volkswagen's MEB platform will be revealed in March before replacing the Ford Fiesta at the firm's Cologne production line around the middle of the year.

The new EV has been kept tightly under wraps since it was confirmed in 2021, but a pair of high-ranking Ford bosses have given the first hints of its design on social media - suggesting a reveal is only a few weeks away.

Martin Sander, head of Ford's Model E electrification division, lifted the covers off part of the Skoda Enyaq rival's front end on Twitter, saying: "Can't wait for 2023 to arrive, when we will pull off the cover of our first electric passenger vehicle coming from Cologne."

Only a small part of the car is visible, but it is already clear that this new EV will mark a step change in the design of Ford's European-market cars. As reported by Autocar, Ford's most successful US-market cars – the Bronco and F-150 most notably – will influence the design of its future global products.

I think the price is going to be a problem for them. The current one is a ridiculous price at the moment, so it doesn't bode well.
If they don't have a decent range then I'm not sure I'd even consider it yet.

What's visible from under that cover doesn't appeal to me at all.

The reveal of the Tesla hatchback at £25k is going to eat into this and the mg success will be a battle if the styling isn’t right and range

Totally agree that the price of the EVs is getting ridiculous with the average price being £10.000 more than their petrol equivalent.
If you can't charge from home, they are getting as expensive running a petrol. Even if you charge at home, the price has quadrupled over the last 6 months.
I will stay with petrol and I'm not interested in an EV at all.
