Ford Pro has revealed first details of the all-new, all-electric, E-Transit Custom. The E-Transit Custom, the all-electric successor to Europe's best-selling van, is aimed at Europe's one-tonne van segment and is designed help businesses across the region to make the change to electrified vehicles. 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.
E-Transit Custom's all-electric architecture helps to deliver a targeted driving range of up to 236 miles, DC fast-charging, and full towing capability. It will enter production in the second half of 2023 - part of the most extensive Transit Custom range. 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 EUR2 billion investment in its facilities.
Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe, says: "This is a watershed moment for commercial vehicle operators in Europe, and another hugely significant realisation of our Ford Pro ambitions. 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."
The newest addition to Ford Pro's electrified line-up will be a key component in Ford's commitment to reach zero emissions for all Ford vehicle sales in Europe and carbon neutrality across its European footprint by 2035.
