As expected Ford Pro has revealed first details of the all-new, all-electric, E-Transit Custom, as the full electrification of its light commercial vehicle line continues. Following the launch of the IVOTY award-winning Transit Hybrid models and the all-electric E-Transit which began production last March, the E-Transit Custom is the all-electric successor to Europe’s best-selling van designed from the ground-up to fit seamlessly into the new Ford Pro operator and aftersales programme. 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.
The newest addition to Ford Pro’s electrified line-up will be a key component in Ford’s four emission free commercial model commitment to reach carbon neutrality across its European footprint by 2035.
E-Transit Custom’s driving range offers up to 380 km, comes with DC fast-charging, and full towing capability, plus ynamic new styling.
“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 the features developed using feedback from van users to ensure E-Transit Custom provides an unmatched customer experience, ProPower Onboard technology, for example, will provide exportable power for tools, lights and devices while on site.
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 this year.
All Transit Custom variants will be built by Ford Otosan – Ford’s joint venture in Turkey – at their Kocaeli site, the home of European Transit manufacturing, delivered as part of Ford Otosan’s previously announced €2 billion investment in its facilities.
