Late last year Ford announced that it would introduce 12 new electric cars by the year 2020. We know that a revised Focus Electric is set to arrive later this year, but the bigger news is that the company is working on an EV with a range of 200 miles. Ford’s CEO Mark Fields recently revealed that Ford is working on a new long-range electric car that will compete with models like the Tesla Model 3 and the Chevy Bolt.

Ford has yet to reveal any details about the upcoming electric car except for its range – which is twice the distance of the 100-mile updated Focus Electric. The electric car will also have a very Tesla-like name, since it will reportedly be called the Model E.

For now reports claim that Ford’s new EV will arrive by 2019, which will trail the arrival of the Chevy Bolt, the Tesla Model 3 and even the next-generation Nissan Leaf, which is also going to have a longer driving range. Either way, Ford has set a goal to be “among the leaders or in a leadership position” in the electric car segment.
