The upcoming 2023 Lincoln Mark-E will become the brand’s first all-electric model ever built. Reportedly, the Mark-E model will be based on the Rivian R1S SUV, although we don’t know that much about this new model. Some reports are saying the Mark-E will produce above 700 horsepower, which is insane.
Anyway, the production is about to begin. Lincoln plans to completely electrify its lineup by 2030. This is just the beginning. As of now, Lincoln provides a couple of models with a hybrid powertrain. However, it seems like the total electrification is about to start and the Mark-E model will go on sale in the first half of 2023.
Lincoln Mark-E Exterior Design
Lincoln is about to start with the production of the new 2023 Lincoln Mark-E. It will be a luxury all-electric SUV. Reportedly, Rivian R1S SUV and Mark-E will have a lot in common. That includes the skateboard platform and much more. On the other hand, the Zephyr Concept will serve as the starting point. This concept was recently revealed and Mark-E will adopt lots of styling elements from this concept.
Right now, the exterior design is a mystery. The concept comes with a subtle front grille that doesn’t look large. The LED headlights are very slightly, running throughout the length of the front fascia and the grille. This LED strip will wear an illuminated Lincoln logo in the middle. Many car experts are saying the Mach-E model will be a mid-size SUV.
The cabin is an even greater mystery. The 2023 Lincoln Mark-E could borrow things from Rivian R1S SUV, Zephyr Concept, Lincoln Navigator, or even Ford Mustang Mach-E. Some teaser images are available, but they are not so reliable. The images are showing a new infotainment system with a completely new interface. Reportedly, it is Lincoln’s new infotainment built on an all-digital platform.
Another photo shows a driving range of 380 miles available and a 140 mph limit speedometer. Additionally, we spotted driving modes such as Normal, Conserve, and Deep Sand. As for the rest of the interior, we don’t know how many seats Lincoln Mark-E will have. Anyway, it will be a plush model, so expect a lot of premium features, both standard and optional.
As we said, the new 2023 Lincoln Mark-E will sit on Rivian’s skateboard architecture. This platform supports hydraulic roll control and air springs. Therefore, this model will be similar to the Rivian R1S SUV. Reportedly, the most expensive Mark-E model will produce over 700 horsepower. This version will have an electric motor at each wheel.
On the other hand, the base model will probably offer a dual-motor setup. This model will produce significantly less power, but the driving range will be better. The lithium-ion battery will also come in various sizes. Unfortunately, this is what we know about the vehicle’s specs.
2023 Lincoln Mark-E Price, Release Date
The price of the forthcoming 2023 Lincoln Mark-E will start at $70,000, per source. This all-electric SUV will reportedly arrive in the first half of 2023. Furthermore, it will rival models such as Tesla Model X, Cadillac Lyriq, and Audi e-Tron.
