Best-selling 2023 Ford Puma to also go electric

The Ford Puma will gain an all-electric variant as part of Ford’s EV push, but it will not use Volkswagen’s MEB platform. This raises the prospect of it sitting on an adapted version of today’s platform or using potentially different underpinnings altogether.


The decision also raises questions about the future of the Ford Fiesta, on which the Puma is based and which could theoretically therefore make use of any electric conversion, although its lower stance would undoubtedly complicate such a move. The Puma was Ford’s best-selling car in the UK last year. It dethroned the Fiesta, which suffered a drop in sales having been heavily affected by semiconductor shortages and factory closures.
