E-Transit will help bring cleaner air to towns and cities

We need vans more than ever, as people around the world have discovered how essential it can be for goods and services to be able to come to them.

At the same time, cities from London to Los Angeles are pledging to create zero-emissions zones for cleaner air in our urban environments.

To help meet the demand for more vans that emit fewer emissions, we’re introducing an all-electric version of the world’s best-selling van – called E-Transit.

Its battery power enables drivers to cover up to 350 km1 on a single charge – that’s roughly three times the distance the average fleet vehicle in the E.U. covers daily. E-Transit also has just as much cargo space2 as a diesel Transit, so delivery drivers can carry big loads for fewer trips, while zero emissions and whisper-quiet running create less tailpipe and noise pollution in towns and cities.

Drivers can also enjoy a whole range of internet services via the standard FordPass Connect modem. This can help owners to find and pay for charging, experience real-time driver coaching to get the best driving range, and pre-heat the cab to a comfortable temperature before setting off. Automatic, wireless updates reduce the need for trips to the dealer.

E-Transit is the only van that can be used to power and recharge tools and equipment on site and on the move. 

There will be 25 variants of E-Transit length, roof height, body type and maximum weight to choose from when the new van arrives in spring 2022.

1 Officially homologated energy efficiency figures will be published closer to on-sale date. Targeted range and charge time based on manufacturer tested values and calculation according to the WLTP drive cycle. Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.
The declared fuel/energy consumptions, CO2-emissions and electric range are determined according to the technical requirements and specifications of the European Regulations (EC) 715/2007 and (EU) 2017/1151 as last amended. Light Duty Vehicle type-approved using the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) will have fuel/energy consumption and CO2-emission information for New European Drive Cycle (NEDC) and WLTP. WLTP will fully replace the NEDC latest by the end of the year 2020. The applied standard test procedures enable comparison between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. During NEDC phase-out, WLTP fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are being correlated back to NEDC. There will be some variance to the previous fuel economy and emissions as some elements of the tests have altered, so the same car might have different fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
