New Ford E-Transit helps white van man go green

Ford unveils the 2022 E-Transit, its $45,000 electric workhorse

Ford E-Transit debuts - 266 hp/430 Nm, up to 201 km range from 67 kWh battery; eight body configurations

A special Eco Mode aims to provide up to an 8-10% improvement in energy usage if E-Transit is driven unladen with spirited acceleration or at highway speeds, according to Ford data. The majority of U.S. Transit vehicles sold a year ago were upfitted, and Ford continues to provide the same upfit financing support for van customers, including those who purchase or lease. Ford estimates the entire BEV commercial van market is 1.1 million commercial van sales through 2030.

E-Transit also features additional standard Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies created to help fleet customers reduce driver-based insurance claims, including lane-keeping system and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking.

The electric motor offers 266 horsepower/198 kilowatts of power and 317 pounds-feet of torque across all eight configurations (three roof heights, three lengths, chassis cab and cutaway models). Using electric vehicle-specific data such as kWh consumption, charge speed, distance to empty and more, managers can better understand how they're operating in real time in order to help optimize running costs and uptime.

On a 115-plus-kilowatt DC fast charger, E-Transit cargo van low-roof models can achieve approximately 48 km of range in 10 minutes and approximately 72 km of range in 15 minutes. Pro Power is effectively a 2.4-kW mobile power generator that can power things like power tools for skilled trades use cases. According to Yaro Hetman, Ford's global marketing director for electric trucks and commercial vehicles, there are about 1,800 Ford commercial vehicle dealers across the US and about 90% are EV-certified. In other words, they want to get the job done. effectively as possible, but they don't want to pay for capability that's over and above that, and that applies to range as well.

Electrification brings new ways for customers to manage their businesses and fleets more efficiently. Hetman said to expect future announcements on versions with greater range and capability.

The Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker highlighted the new Ford E-Transit as the first fully-electric cargo van from a full-line automaker in North America, adding that it will play its part in reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 2050 in line with the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

Scheduled maintenance costs for the all-electric Transit are estimated to be 40 percent less than the average scheduled maintenance costs for a gasoline-powered 2020 Transit.

The E-Transit, which will debut as a 2022 model-year vehicle, offers users, including last-mile delivery operations and contractors, an electric vehicle van option.
