It will bring a new, commercial electric vehicle to Ohio Assembly to build off the plant's existing commercial vehicle center of excellence for internal combustion engine vehicles. Ford is transitioning its business to expand its electric vehicle offerings and capture market growth.
Ford chose Ohio to assemble an all-new electric commercial vehicle because Avon Lake in Lorain County has the experienced talent and workforce to build electric vehicles.
