A battery-powered Lincoln SUV, due in mid-2022, will be the first Ford Motor Co (F.N) vehicle built on a custom electrified chassis that resembles a skateboard, which was developed by Ford-backed startup Rivian, according to several people familiar with the program.

Both models will use Rivian’s so-called skateboard, a flexible platform that combines electric motors, batteries, controls and suspension.
