Lincoln and Rivian confirm partnership to develop new EV

Ford subsidiary Lincoln has formally confirmed that it is working with Rivian to develop a new EV – the partnership was announced last November when Ford invested $500 million in the EV startup.

Lincoln’s first fully electric vehicle will join the Aviator and Corsair Grand Touring PHEVs in the brand’s plug-in lineup. The new EV will be an all-wheel-drive SUV, built on Rivian’s skateboard platform, which includes electric motors, batteries, controls and suspension. It’s expected to be launched in mid-2022.

“Working with Rivian marks a pivotal point for Lincoln as we move toward a future that includes fully electric vehicles,” said Lincoln President Joy Falotico. “This vehicle will take Quiet Flight to a new place – zero emissions, effortless performance and connected and intuitive technology.”

“Our vehicle development partnership with Ford is an exciting opportunity to pair our technology with Lincoln’s vision for innovation and refinement,” said Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe.
