In April 2019, Ford Motor invested USD500 mln in Rivian for development an all-new, next-generation battery electric vehicle for Ford’s growing EV portfolio using Rivian’s skateboard platform.

In October 2019, Ford laid out plans to invest USD11.5 billion in electric vehicles through 2022. It also announced plans to team up with Volkswagen’s Electrify America to develop a network of charging stations, which will be the largest in North America with 12,000 locations and more than 35,000 charge plugs, and with Amazon for installation of home charging setups.

Self-driving option by Ford

In October 2018, Ford Motor and Baidu commenced a two-year joint autonomous vehicle project to advance the development and on-road testing of autonomous vehicles in China.

In November 2018, Ford Motor started a collaboration with retailer Walmart and Postmates to explore how self-driving vehicles can deliver everyday goods to customers, following other collaborations with Domino’s and Lyft.

In September 2019, Ford Motor added Austin, Texas, to the cities of Miami and Washington, where it planned to launch a commercial transportation service using automated vehicles in 2021. Ford’s self-driving system, tested in Fusion Hybrid sedans, is developed with Argo AI, a Pittsburgh-based startup in which Ford and Volkswagen together hold a majority stake.
