Sharing is caring!

The new all-electric Ford Explorer made its first appearance in Dublin this week at the Digital Hub, on Dublin’s Thomas Street.

Slotting in between the Ford Puma and Kuga, the mid-size crossover Explorer is the first in a wave of innovative new electric vehicles from Ford and forges the way for a complete reinvention of the Ford brand in Europe. By end of 2024, four all-electric cars – Puma, Mustang Mach-E, Explorer & Sport Crossover will sport the blue-oval badge.

At the event, John Manning, Market Lead for Ford in Ireland, said: “The new all-electric Explorer is a beautifully designed car that turned many a head when it made its Ireland debut at the Digital Hub this week.  We are really looking forward to the vehicle’s arrival here in the new year.  With the steep rise in interest in electric motoring in Ireland, it is arriving at exactly the right time and we expect the car to be a huge draw for active families who have opted to make the change to an electric car”.

Entering a competitive and already established field led by the Volkswagen ID.4, Skoda Enyaq and Kia Niro, it is engineered and built in Germany, the all-electric Explorer offers an engaging digital experience, helping drivers and passengers stay connected and comfortable on the move. Features include a SYNC Move supersized movable touchscreen and fully connected infotainment system with audio tailored to the interior, wireless app integration and advanced driver assistance technology.

Available to order next month, equipment levels on Explorer is strong with the entry Select trim variance offering standout features that customers will love like the dash long soundbar in the 7-speaker sound system.

At the forefront of Ford’s electric vehicle charge, the new all-electric Explorer is the company’s first electric vehicle to be built at scale in the new Ford Cologne EV Centre in Germany. Ford in Europe is committed to offering an all-electric portfolio of passenger vehicles by 2030 and all vehicles, including commercial vehicles to be electric by 2035.
