Ford just announced it will release a small, all-electric SUV by 2020.


Ford announced its intention to enter the electric SUV space at the same time it said it will scrap the plans for its $1.6 billion factory in Mexico. Instead, the automaker will release 13 electric vehicles over the next 5 years as part of a $4.5 billion investment.

One of those EVs will be an SUV with an estimated 300 mile range that will be sold in North America, Europe, and Asia, according to Ford.
