This was reported by the press service of the American automaker.

Two days before the official unveiling of the new all-electric Ford E-Transit van, the company announced that the first prototype of the model will roll off the assembly line in Kansas City on November 12. The novelty will join the manufacturer’s lineup along with the electric Ford F-150 pickup and the already presented Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Ford is reported to have recently invested more than $ 3 billion in its U.S. manufacturing facility to manufacture cars and commercial vehicles with all-electric propulsion. This expansion of production will allow the company not only to increase technology and increase the number of cars assembled, but also to create new jobs in the cities where the brand’s factories are built.

Recall that the new electric Ford Mustang Mach-E will begin arriving at Ford dealerships this December. It will be followed by the E-Transit van at the end of 2021. And only by the fall of 2022, the brand’s customers will be able to buy an electric Ford F-150 pickup.
