The new all-electric Ford Explorer SUV has been officially released. The new car is based on Volkswagen MEB platform. This is first model released after collaboration with Volkswagen, mainly for European market.
The exterior design of Ford Explorer EV is quite original. The front part is made in a new style. The closed air intake grille is still a common all-electric vehicle design, making Explorer EV's front end more concise. . The pass-through design does not reflect on light group, but connects two sets of headlights through a car logo decorative strip to make front of car more consistent.
The headlights are integrated into entire front end for a natural look. However, there aren't many detailed designs within light group. These are just regular LED daytime running lights with LED bulbs on closer inspection. More traditional. The protruding front bumper also features a rounded and sleek design, while lower half retains air intake grille and features silver trim.
The side lines create a sense of thickness, this part can see a slight ID.4 shadow, regardless of compact body shape, which makes Explorer EV more capable, with a snowflake wheel design, so that side also has a good impression.
As for design of rear, overall design style echoes front of car. Penetrating decorative strips are also used here instead of lamps. The taillights use a black background color with a transparent lamp housing design, which is also a relatively common Ford rear treatment method. The overall effect is also not bad.
The interior design features a large central control screen extending from top of center console and covering entire middle section of center console. The physical buttons are mostly replaced by a screen, with only a few reserved for emergency function keys. And this screen can also be raised and lowered to a certain extent. The operation of screen and user interface of foreign models are same as ordinary tablets, and ordinary consumers can quickly get started.
For horsepower, Ford has not released relevant equipment data. As for ID.4 on same platform, it is expected to be equipped with an electric drive system with one or two motors. The new car is also equipped with a fast charging system that can replenish power from 10% to 80% within 25 minutes, and energy replenishment efficiency is relatively high.
Despite name Explorer, this purely electric SUV has nothing to do with Explorer currently on sale and is more focused on European market. As a model on MEB platform, this car is still guaranteed in terms of performance, but it is expected to be same as Volkswagen models in terms of range, which is not particularly striking. The probability of appearing in domestic market is still relatively high. Ford does not currently have such purely electric models in domestic market and may appear under other names as a complement to existing models.
