Author: |

With the introduction of the all-new E-Transit Custom, Ford Pro, the Blue Oval's dedicated commercial branch, takes a huge step ahead in its electrification push.

In the second half of April, Ford Pro, which was created in 2021, previewed its new electric workhorse. The E-Transit Custom is a smaller version of the larger E-Transit.

The major differences between the E-Transit Custom and the ICE-powered Transit Custom are at the front, where the E-Transit Custom gets a gleaming grille flanked by entirely revised LED headlights. The charging port is located on the right side of the bumper, whereas the "E" badge is located on the left side of the grille.

The van's interior is more traditional. Out rear, sleek LED taillights complete the current look.

Ford is keeping the technological details under wraps, stating only that the E-Transit Custom can travel up to 380 kilometers between charges. It will also be equipped with DC rapid charging, towing capability, and ProPower Onboard technology. The charging technology is similar to that of the F-150 Lightning.

The E-Transit Custom is expected to employ the same 68-kWh battery pack as the E-Transit. According to Autocar, The E-Transit Custom will be available with the same 181 and 265 horsepower electric motors as the E-Transit. Both electric motors are mounted at the rear axle and produce 431 Nm of immediate torque. This should result in a 0 to 100 km/h time of under seven seconds and a top speed of around 137 km/h.

Production will start at the Ford Otosan plant in Kocaeli, Turkey, which will also produce an all-electric next-generation Volkswagen Transporter. This is the second of five Ford Pro EVs that will be available in Europe by 2024.

The van, according to the company, is designed to create a new standard in Europe's one-tonne van category and assist businesses in the region in making the transition to electric cars with ease.

Additional information will be disclosed in September, with production set to begin in Turkey in the second half of 2023.
