WATCH: Ford Pro unveils all-electric commercial van, the E-Transit Custom

MANILA: Ford Pro, the carmaker's venture in the commercial vehicle segment, revealed first details of the all-electric Ford E-Transit Custom.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are the highlight features of the Ford E-Transit Custom?

    The E-Transit Custom has targeted driving range of up to 236 miles (379 kilometers), DC fast-charging, and full towing capability. Further product details will be released in September this year, Ford said.
  • What is Ford Pro?

    Ford Pro is a first-of-its-kind venture in the commercial vehicle segment, offering fully integrated, digital-first solutions to help customers manage their fleets with unparalleled convenience and efficiency, whether they operate diesel- and gasoline-powered vehicles, all-electric vehicles, or even non-Ford vehicles.
  • Hot on the heels of the all-electric E-Transit that began production in March this year, the E-Transit Custom is a one-ton van that aims to help businesses across the European region to make the change to electrified vehicles.

    The E-Transit Custom is the first of four all-electric commercial vehicles Ford Pro will introduce by 2024. 

    The all-electric successor to Europe’s best-selling van and the UK’s best-selling vehicle is designed from the ground-up to fit seamlessly into the Ford Pro EV ecosystem. The E‑Transit Custom will be supported by Ford Pro software, charging, service and financing solutions via one comprehensive platform to help increase business uptime and reduce operating costs.

    The newest addition to Ford Pro’s electrified lineup 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.

    E-Transit Custom’s no-compromise all-electric architecture helps to deliver a targeted driving range of up to 236 miles (379 kilometers), DC fast-charging, and full towing capability. In addition, the new van will help take productivity to new levels using sophisticated connectivity to enable always-on relationships.

    “This is a watershed moment for commercial vehicle operators in Europe, and another hugely significant realization of our Ford Pro ambitions,” Ford Pro Europe General Manager Hans Schep said. 

    Among features developed using in-depth insights from van users to ensure E-Transit Custom provides an unmatched customer experience, ProPower Onboard technology will provide exportable power for tools, lights and devices while on site.

    With an expressive and sculptural design, E-Transit Custom is a working vehicle that companies of all sizes will be proud to have as a trusted partner for their business. Featuring rebalanced proportions, a confident stance and full LED lighting, the new model will set a distinctive new design benchmark in the one-ton van segment.

    Earlier this year, Ford announced that by 2024, four further new all-electric vehicles will join the E-Transit two-ton van as part of the iconic Transit family, including the Transit Custom and Transit Courier vans, as well as Tourneo Custom and Tourneo Courier people movers.

    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.

    Ford, SK On Co., Ltd. and Koç Holding also recently signed a 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.
