Investments in this large-scale project, according to media reports, can reach $ 1.5 billion. In the meantime, the American automaker has signed a contract for the production of new models with Unifor.

Ford executives are planning to spend a significant amount on five new electrified vehicles.

Ford is going to provide additional funding for its Canadian businesses. Recall that today the plant, located not far from Ontario, produces a mid-size crossover Ford Edge and a larger Lincoln Nautilus, which inherited a common chassis.

At the same time, we remember that the Americans are going to complete the production of these cars by 2023. They will be replaced by hybrids and electric cars. By 2025, Ford is going to release five new models in Canada at once. What kind of car it will be has not yet been specified.

By the way, the money for the re-equipment is also allocated to the plant producing 6.8-liter diesel engines. Here they want to organize the production of batteries for future novelties.

Meanwhile, spies have photographed the Ford Explorer crossover in the off-road version of the FX4. A new modification, better suited for off-roading, will receive the 2021 model year SUV. But the timing of the release of new items on the market has not yet been disclosed.
