It looks like the arrival of Ford’s first ever EV car is not far away from now and this was confirmed by the carmaker during their annual shareholders’ meeting that took place yesterday.

Ford CEO Mark Fields revealed that their EV project will be starting with a “small SUV” that will rely on a revolutionary battery so that it can cover a total distance of 300 miles with electricity. Aside from that, Ford wants to roll out their EV products by 2020.

No details were offered on Ford’s first EV car but the projection above got the majority of car enthusiasts speculating that the vehicle is the Model E. The name was patented by Ford several years ago and it is likely to be used on the first EV produced by the carmaker.

The projected EV miles and structure makes the wait for the Model E all the more interesting as we are curious to see how the vehicle will get accepted by the masses. Ford has certainly nailed it with their range target but can the Model E follow up with great value?
