Ford Pro revealed a new extended range option for the E-Transit, enhancing the capability of the top-selling large electric van in Europe. The new model features an 89 kWh useable battery capacity for a maximum driving range of up to 402 km, as well as faster AC and DC charging performance. 

Like all E-Transit commercial vehicles, the extended range model is fully integrated with the Ford Pro platform of connected charging and software solutions to help customers optimise energy management, streamline servicing, and minimise downtime and cost of ownership. The extended range E-Transit is designed to appeal especially to customers who operate in rural regions, colder climates, or on routes involving highway driving. The powertrain will also complement converted vehicles with additional weight and auxiliary power needs. Customers will be able to order the new model later this year, with initial deliveries expected in 2025.

Ford E-Transit: enhanced charging performance, too

In addition, Ford engineers have significantly enhanced E-Transit’s charging performance for every extended range model. Maximum AC charge capability has been increased from 11 kW to 22 kW, meaning a full overnight charge is targeted to take under six hours. DC fast charging capability has been increased from 115 kW to 180 kW, so that a 10-minute charge can add up to 116 km of driving range, and a 10-80 per cent charge takes approximately 28 minutes.

“The extended range option for E-Transit is another example of the Ford Pro commitment to making high-productivity electric fleets a reality across Europe,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe. “Giving customers the option to drive further between charges alongside a wide choice of body styles and support from Ford Pro’s connected ecosystem strengthens our position as their trusted partner for complete fleet solutions.”
