First Ford E-Transit models roll off production line

Ford Pro is now shipping the first production units of its all-electric E-Transit van following strong early demand with over 5,000 customer pre-orders.

To meet demand for future electrified Ford models, Ford Otosan is investing €2 billion and growing employment by around 3,000 to increase vehicle production capacity, including for the next-generation Transit Custom model.

With its competitive range, payload, power and choice of bodystyles, Ford Pro has already proven E-Transit’s durability with demanding testing in high-tech facilities around the world. The company is now running a wider programme of customer pilots with a total of 60 pre-production E-Transits, including converted models, operating in typical daily use with customers across France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and the UK.

“Ford Transit has defined ‘the Van’ in UK culture for 56 years”, said Mandy Dean, director, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Britain. “Now, E-Transit’s market-leading range represents a significant shift forward not only as a vehicle to reduce carbon emissions, but as a connected vehicle, equipped with data services that will support SMEs and large businesses alike.”
