Ford Puma EV teased ahead of 2024 debut; Based on the VW MEB platform | Rare Techy


To celebrate some 47 years of Fiesta success, Ford posted a farewell video on YouTube, which still gives us a small glimpse of the 100% electric Ford Puma. The latter should replace the popular city car. The short video, made to celebrate the eighth generation of the Ford Fiesta, shows the Puma hidden in the dark as it quietly exits the garage after charging up the wall box. Ford of Europe boss Martin Sander confirmed in an official statement that the Blue Oval will stop production of the Fiesta, along with the S-Max and Galaxy minivans.

By 2024, these models will be replaced by three new private electric vehicles and four new zero-emission commercial vehicles. Coming back to the Ford Puma EV, we currently know that it is expected to make its official debut in 2024. Versions with internal combustion engine and hybrid will continue to be offered. In addition, the Puma EV will be joined by two more Sport Utility Vehicles based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform.

There is currently no official confirmation, but it is likely that the Puma EV was developed alongside the E-Transit electric van. In addition, it will be produced at the Romanian Ford plant. The plant in Cologne, Germany, where the Ford Fiesta is currently assembled, will be converted into an electric vehicle plant, where SUVs based on the MEB platform will be produced.
