Introducing Ford's New All-Electric Explorer

Introducing Ford's New All-Electric Explorer

Ford has unveiled its new Explorer SUV, which is set to hit roads later this year.

Combining the best of German engineering and American design, it’s certainly one to watch. But what exactly can you expect from the new model?

Martin Sander, General Manager, Ford Model e, Europe commented: “Explorer is a trailblazer for a new breed of exciting Ford electric vehicles. Steeped in our American roots but built in Cologne for our customers in Europe, it is road trip-ready for the big adventures and fully loaded with everything our customers will need for their daily drives.”

Exterior Design

The Explorer will be based on the same platform as the Volkswagen ID.4. This is due to an ongoing partnership between the two automotive brands.

Built for adventure, the Explorer has a bold presence. Front and centre, you’ll find Ford’s iconic badging in place of the traditional grille. A coast-to-coast trim features ‘EXPLORER’ lettering, and LED headlights finish off a modern front end.

The rear also features smart LED lights and a coast-to-coast styling strip. A floating roof effect completes the futuristic design. If you want to take things further, you can add a panoramic sunroof.

Ford Explorer Charging

The Explorer will be available in a choice of colour finishes, including new 'Arctic Blue' and 'Blue My Mind'. You can also choose between alloy wheel options to further personalise your vehicle.

Interior Features

The interior of the new Explorer is filled with modern technology for your comfort and ease.

With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Ford’s SYNC Move infotainment system will keep you connected on the move. An adjustable 15-inch screen in the centre console allows you to control various vehicle functions with ease.

Neatly tucked behind the infotainment screen is Ford’s ‘My Private Locker’. This hidden compartment is suitable for keeping phones and other valuable items safe. There is also a handy ‘MegaConsole’ to keep other bits secure, which is large enough to slot a 15-inch laptop if needed.

Ford Explorer Interior

As you’d expect with Ford, plenty of thought has been put into making the Explorer a safe vehicle to drive. Ultrasonic sensors, cameras, and radars help power a raft of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.

Ergonomically designed front seats provide optimal comfort. Drivers benefit from a massage feature too. With ambient lighting and plenty of soft-touch materials, the interior will feel a truly premium space.

When it comes to storage, the boot has plenty of room for everyday items with a 450-litre capacity. Even bulkier items can be accommodated thanks to a moveable floor and folding rear seats, extending the space to 1,400 litres.


The entry-level Explorer kicks things off with a 168bhp rear-wheel-drive, featuring a 55kWh battery. This is set to provide a fully electric range of up to 218 miles. Next is the 282bhp single-motor model with an 82kWh battery. This should offer an expected range of up to 335 miles. The range-topping Explorer will feature the same 82kWh battery – but with dual motors it will produce a punchier 335bhp. The range is anticipated to be up to 305 miles.

All models will be able to charge from 10-80% in around 25 minutes with a rapid DC charger. Owners will have access to over 21,000 public charge points across the UK through Ford’s Blue Oval Network.

Ford has committed to offering an all-electric range of passenger vehicles in Europe by 2030. The Explorer is set to be an exciting addition to this portfolio.

The new Explorer is due to be launched later this year. Information on pricing and specifications will be released in due course.
