While it is still unclear whether Lincoln will be completely phasing out the gas-powered Corsair for this new EV, it is quite clear from reports that the latter will be based on an all-new platform that will be different from the current crop of the Corsair. The SUV is expected to be built in Ford’s plant in Canada.

Ford Motor’s electrification plans involve an all-electric F- 150 and combined with the Mustang Mach-E in the subsequent years. That drive will expand to Ford's luxury line, Lincoln, that might observe electrifying by 2026. That date arises from a brand new report by Automotive News, which also says it will likely be Lincoln Corsair to obtain the electrified powertrain.

“At this point, we’re not sure if it will completely replace the Corsair or if there will be an equivalent gas-powered Corsair. But they would be on two different platforms,” Sam Fiorani, vice-president of AutoForecast Solutions, told Automotive News 

Like its GM and Stellantis crosstown rivals, the Dearborn-based automaker is spending billions of dollars in everything from battery technologies to mobility solutions. Due to adverse events, the previously proposed Rivian-based luxury crossover has been canceled, but this doesn't mean Lincoln is giving up that easily.

Both planned to build a sizable Lincoln crossover on Rivian's skateboard platform deemed for 2022. Factual statements relating to this vehicle continue to be a puzzle. Even the coronavirus upended initial plans, though we're eager to see what arises from the venture.

Corsair is likely to be just one of several electrified vehicles being fabricated in the Oakville plant in the next years, with the primary thing scheduled to roll off the assembly line in 2025 and the final in 2028. That might mean full EVs or hybrids. However, the split up is not known thus far. Trying to sell the Corsair and Corsair-E, the latter being a primary competitor to the Tesla Model Y and Audi Q4 e Tron, can provide Lincoln a greater customer appeal.
