The Ford E-Transit Custom will also feature ProPower Onboard technology which will provide power for tools, lights and devices while on site.
The Transit Custom is Europe’s best-selling van and the UK’s best-selling vehicle.
The all-electric E-Transit Custom will enter production in the second half of 2023 and is the first of four further all-electric commercial vehicles that Ford Pro will introduce by 2024. It will be joined by the Transit Courier van and the Tourneo Custom and Tourneo Courier people movers.
The E-Transit Custom will join the all-electric two-tonne E-Transit which began production in March this year. The Ford E-Transit has a 68kWh usable battery capacity as standard, providing a range of up to 197 miles WLTP. Payload is up to 1,758kg on the van model, and the range totals 25 variants of van, double-cab-in-van and chassis cab body styles with multiple lengths and roof heights, as well as GVMs from 3.5 to 4.25 tonnes. E-Transit pricing starts from £47,700 excluding VAT in the UK.
The Ford E-Transit spearheaded the European introduction of Ford Pro – the manufacturer’s new worldwide sales and servicing business centred around improving commercial vehicle customers’ productivity with “world-class vehicles and cutting-edge products and services”.
Further details about the Ford E-Transit Custom will be released in September this year.
All Transit Custom variants will be built by Ford Otosan – Ford’s joint venture in Turkey.
Ford, SK On Co., Ltd. and Koç Holding also recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a joint venture to create one of Europe’s largest commercial vehicle battery facilities, targeting a mid-decade production start and an annual capacity in the range of 30 to 45 Gigawatt hours.
The E-Transit Custom 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.
