Electric vans, Ford reveals new E-Transit Custom: range up to 380 km, production to begin in 2023
According to Ford, the E-Transit Custom is capable to deliver a targeted driving range of up to 380 km, DC fast-charging, and full towing capability. 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.
Ford Pro revealed first details of the all-new, all-electric, E-Transit Custom van. Following the all-electric E-Transit that began production in March this year – and the first of four further all-electric commercial vehicles Ford Pro will introduce by 2024 – the E-Transit Custom is the brand-new addition to the Ford Pro electric range in the one-tonne van segment.
The new E-Transit Custom enhanced by the Ford Pro ecosystem
The new E-Transit Custom will be supported by the full Ford Pro ecosystem of software and services, introduced a couple of weeks ago in the United States and at the beginning of May in Europe. The newest addition to Ford Pro’s electrified line-up will be a key component in Ford’s bold commitment to reach zero emissions for all Ford vehicle sales in Europe and carbon neutrality across its European footprint by 2035.
