Ford Motor Company Named to TIME’s List of the TIME100 Most Influential Companies _ Ford Media Cente-507x285.png

TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People list is one of the most anticipated releases each year. In 2020, the addition of a Top 100 Most Influential Companies list expanded the focus from individuals to larger groups, and now the list is in its second year. Companies such as Spoitfy, Pfizer, Moderna, and AirBnB have all been named to the list this year, and Ford Motor Company has also been identified as one of the most noteworthy companies from the year 2021.

“Cars, SUVs, pickups, and other light-duty trucks account for over half of all U.S. transportation emissions, making electric vehicles (EVs) key to mitigating climate change,” said TIME. “But it’s not enough to just offer EVs—people have to actually want them. Ford’s approach, under CEO Jim Farley: electrify some of its most popular models, like the F-Series, long America’s best-selling pickup. And it’s working—demand for the all-electric F-150 Lightning helped push Ford’s market value over $100 billion for the first time in January.”


Recommendations for the list came from TIME editors and correspondents around the world as well as experts in industries including health care, entertainment, transportation, technology and more. Anything from a remarkable startup to a well-established industry giant can be considered. Each nomination was evaluated for relevance, impact, innovation, leadership and success, and several other factors. The competition was fierce, but Ford made it out among the top 100 nominees to form the list for the year.


“I am honored that Ford has been named to TIME's list of the 100 Most Influential Companies,” said Bill Ford, executive chair. “This is especially gratifying because it is not about any individual, but rather a recognition of our incredible employees who work tirelessly to leave the world a better place for our kids and grandkids. Through their hard work, innovation and creativity, we are fundamentally changing the future of transportation and mobility, and building a cleaner future.”
