Ford E-Transit gets new 89kWh battery with 400km range

April 23, 2024

Ford has expanded the range of the E-Transit with the introduction of a brand new 89kWh battery.

The new battery option will increase the Ford E-Transit's range to 402km (250 miles) on the WLTP test cycle.

Charging speeds. have also been improved with AC charge capabilities doubled from 11 kW to 22 kW, and DC fast charging increasing from 115kW to 180kW. That means that using an AC supply, a full overnight charge will take less than six hours while a DC fast charge will see 116 km of driving range added in just 10 minutes and an 10% to 80% charge taking approximately 28 minutes.

Servicing intervals are also increasing for both the new van and the current model with extended two-year/unlimited mileage service intervals - a doubling of the current one-year interval requirement.

A new vapour-injected heat pump will also be standard on the extended range E-Transit van. This will enable the cabin to be heated more efficiently and is a similar to the one used on Ford E-Transit Custom which is designed to improve energy efficiency and optimise range in colder weather.

Ford Pro expects that the increased capability of E-Transit extended range will appeal to customers with a wide range of use cases and requirements.

The new 89kWh battery will be available on E-Transit vans in L3 and L4 lengths as a van, double-cab-in-van and single chassis cab.

As with the existing E-Transit, GVWs will range from 3,500 kg to 4,250 kg allowing a maximum E-Transit payload of up to 1,460 kg for vans and 1,814 kg for chassis cab variants.

The extended range E-Transit will also. have a towing capacity of up to 750 kg for 3,500kg GVW vans.

“The extended range option for E-Transit is another example of the Ford Pro commitment to making high-productivity electric fleets a reality across Europe,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe.

“Giving customers the option to drive further between charges alongside a wide choice of body styles and support from Ford Pro’s connected ecosystem strengthens our position as their trusted partner for complete fleet solutions," Schep added.

Ford Pro will also offer the E-Transit with a new factory-supported electric minibus conversion from Turkish converter ISRI.

Designed for taxi firms, schools and local authorities, the new E-Transit minibus will be able to seat up to 15 people and is based on an E-Transit L3 window van. Plated at 4,250 kg GVW, it can be specified with a single or double front passenger seat, and with a nine- or 12-seat rear layout. It's also available in either a standard or high height.
