Rivian-based Lincoln electric vehicle canceled due to coronavirus
Ford's luxury division did say it still has its own electric vehicle in development, and there's a different Rivian-based model coming.
It all started with Gran Turismo. From those early PlayStation days, Sean was drawn to anything with four wheels. Prior to joining the Roadshow team, he was a freelance contributor for Motor Authority, The Car Connection and Green Car Reports. As for what's in the garage, Sean owns a 2016 Chevrolet SS, and yes, it has Holden badges.
A Rivian spokesperson affirmed both companies' commitments to work together and told Roadshow there will still be a jointly developed vehicle -- it just won't be the same one. We never received any concrete evidence to suggest what kind of vehicle this now-canceled project was, but it's safe to say it was some sort of utility vehicle.
We can only assume the two companies will pivot to create a different kind of EV. Neither Lincoln nor Rivian commented on potential future vehicles.
While Lincoln and Rivian sort a new EV out,
luxury division did confirm the brand has its own EV in development. Details are inexistent, but this one will ride on a Ford platform and still embody Lincoln's DNA.
