Lincoln is currently working on a new electric vehicle with EV startup Rivian, but other than the fact that it will use Rivian’s skateboard platform, we don’t know much else. Well Ford recently trademarked the “Lincoln eGlide” name, in the US, which might give is some clues.
A user on the Mach-E Club forums discovered the trademark, which was filed last week. The trademark, simply states that it is for “Motor vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, sport utility vehicles, electric vehicles and structural parts and fittings; electric vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, sport utility vehicles, and structural parts and fittings.” So that means the eGlide name could be used for pretty much anything.
The eGlide name isn’t nearly as impactful as Lincoln’s other vehicle names, like Aviator and Navigator, so let’s hope that it isn’t being used for a new Lincoln electric vehicle. It seems more logical that the eGlide name could be used the name for an EV mode.
