8

Ford Pro has confirmed the range and payload of its upcoming E-Transit Custom, an all-new electric version of its best-selling model.

The vehicle is due to go on sale in 2024.

It will have a range of 236 miles, courtesy of a 74kWh battery pack. Ford says the range is more than four times the average one-tonne van driver’s daily mileage.

DC fast charging of 125kW allows the battery to be charged from 15-80% in 41 minutes.

As a panel van, the E-Transit Custom offers load volumes from 5.8 to 9.0 cubic metres, with payload of up to 1,100Kg and a maximum load length of 3,450mm.

Double-cab-in-van and kombi body styles will also be available, all with a choice of short or long wheelbase and low or high roof.

Two power outputs will be offered: 135PS or 217PS. Both versions have 415Nm of torque and a towing capacity of up to 2,000Kg.

The specification includes a 13-inch central infotainment touchscreen, 5G connectivity with Ford Pro telematics, a 360-degree camera system and LED lighting.

Ford's ProPower Onboard feature is available to deliver up to 2.3kW of power through sockets in the cab and load area to power tools, lights and devices using the vehicle’s high-voltage battery while driving or at a work site.

The E-Transit Custom will be built at Ford’s Otosan plant, in Turkey, alongside an electric version of the next-generation VW Transporter, as part of a commercial agreement between the two automotive giants.

Ford said the new van will be supported by Ford Pro software, charging, service and financing solutions via one comprehensive platform to help increase uptime and reduce operating costs.

“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.”

The all-electric E-Transit Custom will enter production in the second half of 2023. It will be the first of four new all-electric vehicles to join the E-Transit two-tonne van as part of the Transit family, including the Transit Courier vans, Tourneo Custom and Tourneo Courier.

Further product details will be released in September this year.
