What To Expect

Ford is reportedly bringing their upcoming Explorer EV to the US. The electric variant of the venerable midsize SUV is set to begin production for the European market this summer, and we're expecting it to arrive stateside following its overseas debut. Info is still preliminary, but here's what we know about the 2025 Ford Explorer EV so far.

We initially thought that the 2025 Explorer EV would share the same electric motors and battery packs as the Mustang Mach-E, but it will instead ride on a Volkswagen-derived platform. The Euro-spec Explorer EV is offered with a single 168-hp electric motor paired with a 55-kWh battery, although we don't expect that configuration to make it to the US.

Instead, we expect the base model to feature an 82-kWh battery and a 282-hp motor. An all-wheel drive dual-motor setup should arrive with the same battery pack and a total output of 335 hp. We are still awaiting estimated range figures.

On the tech front, the 2025 Explorer EV should come with Ford’s latest SYNC infotainment system. The automaker is currently offering its vehicles with SYNC 4, which could be updated by the time the 2025 model year rolls around or be replaced by a new infotainment system. Ford’s current electric vehicles that come with SYNC 4 are available with touchscreens that range from 12 to 15 inches in size.

Ford should offer the 2025 Explorer EV with a suite of advanced safety features. The automaker will most likely offer the SUV with its Co-Pilot360 suite of features. The suite currently includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, automatic high-beam assist, and parking sensors. Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free driver-assist system is expected to be offered on the electric SUV.

2025 Ford Explorer EV Price & Release Date

No official release date for the Explorer EV has been announced thus far. Electrek reports that Ford plans to start building the European model this summer, following an eight-month delay. We expect the Explorer EV to arrive in the US sometime in 2025 based on that timeline.

Pricing for the SUV remains a mystery, but a good estimate is that the electric vehicle will start at around $50,000.

The all-electric segment is constantly changing, so it’s hard to say what the 2025 Explorer EV will compete against. As a midsize electric SUV, the Explorer EV should compete against the Volkswagen ID.4, Tesla Model Y, Nissan Ariya, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and Kia EV6.
