Today, GM showed some of their future electric models that included Cadillac's Lyriq. I'd like to know if you all know where/if Lincoln is heading in a similar direction as American Luxury Electrics?
NO, a company that is so profit driven wont spend the necessary cash to develop electric cars. If the drive in the company is to save pennies per car on the obvious, they won't spend tens of millions to be a player in the electric car market.Ok, well, maybe I can clarify my question. I think that Lincoln had an idea to build a vehicle on the Rivian platform and canceled that program. I would like to know if Lincoln will revisit this idea and/or use another platform to create new electric options for the luxury buyer? I think something highly stylish, yet understated elegantly as Lincoln has become known would be most welcome in this burgeoning market. JMHO, of course.
Lincoln and Ford are used interchangeably here. Based on my limited experience with the Corsair, I think it safe to say that if the designers and engineers had their way, they'd make a compromise free car.Lincoln isn't the 'tightwad', Ford is. Lincoln hasn't developed a new car in many years; they just adapt Fords to Lincolns.
I would accept the tire explanation if it wasn't combined with all the other deletions.Spare tire delete is to save weight. GM has been doing it for more than 10 years. I used to own a 2007 Saturn Sky that had the tire inflator instead of a spare. It caused me to hesitate on buying the car, but then I realized that in all my years of driving I only had 1 instance where the inflator wouldn't have worked in place of a spare. Now, both of my Lincolns have spares, but I also have a tire inflator in each. For a slow leak, it's easier to inflate the tire than it is to change it. I also have road service through my insurance, but who wants to wait for that?
As far as electrics, I can imagine a Lincoln version of the Mustang Mach E.
