We are moving into a new era where technology is radically changing transportation. People not only have more options when traveling from A to B, their journeys are becoming more intelligent and digital. Against this backdrop, traditional carmakers, once the bellwethers in mobility innovations, are busy catching up with new changes in the market.

Global automobile manufacturer Ford took the wraps off five new models this Tuesday in Chongqing, where its joint venture with local partner Changan is located. In addition to a brand new automobile lineup, the company has been laying out in several new initiatives that pave to the way to better days for Ford, including bigger plans for electric vehicles, connected cars and autonomous vehicles.

It’s no secret that Ford is developing a special focus in China. This week’s event, what the company called its first global launch in China, is part of Ford’s plan to introduce over 50 new or redesigned Ford and Lincoln vehicles in the country by 2025. Of the total amount, 15 will be electric vehicles.
