Ford has revealed first details of the all-electric, E-Transit Custom. The all-electric E-Transit began production in March this year – the first of four all-electric commercial vehicles due by 2024 – and the E-Transit Custom is aiming to set a benchmark in the one-tonne van segment.
The E-Transit Custom’s all-electric architecture is said to deliver a driving range of up to 236 miles, DC fast-charging and full towing capability.
“This is a watershed moment for commercial vehicle operators in Europe, and another hugely significant realisation of our Ford Pro ambitions,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe. “Europe’s best-selling van just went all-electric and – supported by our unique Ford Pro one-stop-shop of productivity-boosting services – the operating benefits this will bring to business across Europe cannot be overstated.”
Among features developed using feedback from van users the E-Transit Custom is fitted with ProPower which will provide power for tools, lights and devices while on site.
Earlier this year Ford announced that by 2024, four further new all-electric vehicles will join the E-Transit two-tonne van as part of the iconic Transit family, including the Transit Custom and Transit Courier vans, as well as Tourneo Custom and Tourneo Courier people movers.
The all-electric E-Transit Custom will enter production in the second half of 2023 – part of the most extensive Transit Custom range ever offered to European customers. Further product details will be released in September 2022.
