It depends. If Ford can check the right boxes on the hybrid. All electric range of 30 + miles, 75 mph all electric and 0-60 8 seconds or less. I suspect to do that they will need electric motors of 200 + hp with a 16 kW+ battery. Substantially less then this and they are not being serious.
I expect the Aviator plug-in Hybrid to have about 450 HP so 0-60 below 8 seconds is easy. Lincoln already stated a performance “mightier than many supercars on the road today”.
I doubt the electric motor will be 200 HP+ but in the end, that is not necessary in the first place. If they start with the 2.7, 3.0 or 3.5 V6, they already have quite some power to begin with.
The 30+ mile electric range is also possible. I recall an interview with a comment by Lincoln that indicates a positive surprise in regards to range. It was basically said that electric ranges like 10 or 15 miles wouldn't 'fly' anymore.
