The collaboration between the Volkswagen Group and Ford seems to go from strength to strength, as it could also extend to the development of electric vehicles

The Volkswagen Group and Ford could develop electric vehicles

Volkswagen ID Concept

We've known about collaboration for some time now. strong> between the Volkswagen Group and Ford . This partnership, which is not the first between both corporations, will help them grow where they have less strength. However, today there is no written document that specifies in which areas of the market they will work. In any case, it seems that it will be broader than initially foreseen.

At first it was aimed at the development of a new range of industrial vehicles . However, there are other segments of the market that matter to both firms. The Volkswagen Group is interested in pick-ups since in America its presence is very scarce. A Ford , on the other hand, seems to be interested in the electrical technology of the German conglomerate, as pointed out by the latest rumors.

 Ford Mondeo

To this day, Ford is one of the companies that lags behind in the development of its electric vehicles. It is true that the last generation of Focus had a battery-powered version, but it did not reach the audience. To this situation we must add that its ecological mobility program is based on the Fusion and that its death is scheduled for 2020.

Therefore, it would not be unreasonable to think that the Volkswagen Group could help you advance your investigations. In this way, Ford could access the technology of the German consortium. On the other hand, it would be Volkswagen who would benefit from the American brand. So, the development of your next pick up for the American markets would be closer to being a reality.

Will we see an electric Ford Focus rival of Golf?

Thinking about it is still very premature, because the agreement between Ford and the Volkwagen Group is taking its first steps. However, emissions regulations are forcing manufacturers to establish this type of alliance. For now, Ford has started a collaboration with Baidu to develop new mobility alternatives. On the side of Volkswagen, the investment of 34 billion euros in the development of electric vehicles is still standing.

Time is the only one that will say if this collaboration arrives, or not, to a good port. For now, we can only talk about the "first hands of love" of two of the largest car manufacturers in the world.
