The upcoming 2022 Lincoln Mark-E is almost here and we can’t wait to see it on the roads. It is Lincoln’s first all-electric model. Interestingly, the manufacturer planned to build a new Mark-E in a partnership with the Rivian. The plan was to build both R1S SUV and Mark-E models on the same platform. However, Rivian R1S SUV won’t happen in the near future.
Anyway, Mark-E is coming to the markets and it will be a model full of luxury and with great performances. This model will rival Tesla Model X, Cadillac Lyriq, and Audi e-Tron. The sales will begin in the coming months. Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the new Mark-E model.
What About Specs?
We don’t know what kind of electric powertrain the 2022 Lincoln Mark E will have. As we said, the contract with Rivian fell through. It might have a similar layout as the Ford Mustang Mach E, with two electric motors and battery capacities ranging from 75.7-kWh to 98.8-kWh, as well as up to 459-horsepower and standard AWD system.
It may potentially provide a whole new system with rear- or all-wheel drive and up to four motors, one for each wheel. We won’t know anything more until the Mark E goes on sale. In any case, the Mark E appears to be a strong and fast electric crossover. An adaptive suspension will be on offer as standard, providing a soft, Lincoln-like ride quality.
2022 Mark-E Driving Range, Charging Time
It’s tough to predict the driving range of the 2022 Lincoln Mark E crossover. Using the Rivian skateboard architecture would have resulted in a range of up to 400 miles. In-home charging devices will be available as an add-on, and we anticipate that the Mark E will be capable of DC fast charging at public stations. The Tesla Model X is rated at 101 MPGe, while the Audi e-Tron delivers 74 MPGe. It will be interesting to see what will Mark-E model has to offer, but Ford will definitely provide amazing performance figures.
As Ford’s luxury brand, Lincoln is known for building impressive interiors. The 2022 Lincoln Mark-E will be no different. We expect to see amazing cabin design with plenty of luxury and premium materials. For a start, Lincoln will introduce its 30-way power-adjustable seats with massage functions. Leather upholstery is known as “Bridge of Weir” will be on offer. Moreover, the manufacturer will provide a key-push-button shifter as well.
Interestingly, but we don’t know if the Mark-E model will arrive with two or three rows of seats. Recent additions to the Lincoln portfolio, such as the Aviator and Corsair SUVs, have displays as large as 10.1. This unit runs on the newest version of Lincoln’s Sync 3 infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will come standard, and in-dash navigation and onboard Wi-Fi will almost certainly be available.
2022 Lincoln Mark-E Price, Release Date
In terms of price, the forthcoming 2022 Lincoln Mark-E will cost around $70,000. On the other hand, the range-topping Black Label trim level will cost closer to $90k. There should be three trim levels, but nothing is official yet. The sales will reportedly begin in the coming months, by the end of 2021.
