9.5.2022Ford Pro reveals new electric E-Transit Custom
Ford has taken another major step in its electrification transformation, with Ford Pro revealing the first details of the new, fully electric E-Transit Custom.
Following hot on the heels of the electric E-Transit that began production in March this year – and the first of four further electric commercial vehicles that Ford Pro will introduce by 2024 – the E-Transit Custom is designed to set a new benchmark in Europe’s one-tonne van segment and help businesses across the region to effortlessly make the change to electrified vehicles.
The electric successor to Europe’s best-selling van and the UK’s best-selling vehicle is designed from the ground-up. The E‑Transit Custom will also be supported by Ford Pro software, charging, service and financing solutions via one comprehensive platform to help increase uptime and reduce operating costs.
This newest addition will be a key component in Ford’s commitment to reach zero emissions for all Ford vehicle sales in Europe and carbon neutrality across its European footprint by 2035.
Indeed, the E-Transit Custom’s electric architecture helps to deliver a targeted driving range of up to 236 miles, 3 DC fast-charging, and full towing capability– not to mention dynamic new styling. In addition, the new van will help take productivity to new levels using sophisticated connectivity to enable always-on relationships.
“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.”
Earlier this year Ford announced that by 2024, four further new 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 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 this year.
