• Ford Pro has this week revealed the first details of the all-new, all-electric, E-Transit Custom.

    Following on from the all-electric E-Transit which 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 designed to set a new benchmark in Europe’s one-tonne van segment.

    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 into the Ford Pro.

    This 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.

    The E-Transit Custom has a targeted range up to 236 miles, full towing capability and DC fast charging, plus unique Pro-Power Onboard feature.

    Further details to be announced in September, with production beginning in 2023 at the upgraded Ford Otosan facility in Kocaeli, Turkey.
