Ford reveals fully electric Transit Custom

6

Ford Pro has confirmed the E-Transit Custom, an electric version of its best-selling van, will go on sale in 2024.

The all-new model will have a range of 236 miles, DC fast charging and full towing capability.

It 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 E‑Transit Custom 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.”

Further product details will be released in September this year.
