The new electric Ford E-Transit price will be £42,000 when order books open in October.
The E-Transit gets a choice of two different powered motors with either 135kW or 198kW maximum outputs with 430Nm of torque.
It has a 68kWh usable battery capacity as standard that will provide a claimed driving range of up to 197 miles (317km). The range will be made up of 25 different variants with panel van, double-cab and chassis bodies, all of which will be available with multiple lengths and differing roof heights with gross vehicle weights at 3.5 tonnes as well as 4.25 tonnes.
The E-Transit will also have a unique ProPower Onboard feature that gives up to 2.3kW of power via standard plug sockets in the cab and load area. A feature only previously seen on the Nissan eNV200 it will enable drivers to power tools, lights or laptops as well as conversions such as fridge units. The E-Transit battery will apparently take a charge from 15% to 80% in 34 minutes when connected to a 115kW DC rapid charger while an complete overnight charge from a standard 230-volt AC supply will take around eight hours.
The E-Transit will go on trial with a number of operators across Europe ahead of its launch in spring 2022. Customers include Balfour Beaty, DPD and Ocado.
