I'm looking to buy a hybrid van. What's in the pipeline for 2020?

Ford has a few hybrid vans in the works for 2020. The Transit 2.0-litre 130PS EcoBlue is getting a mild-48-volt-hybrid system that will cut emissions and boost claimed fuel economy up to 37mpg.

The Transit Custom is getting a sophisticated plug-in petrol hybrid system that will allow it to run on pure electricity for 30 miles and hybrid power for over 300 miles. A mild-hybrid system, similar to the larger Transit, will also be offered with the 2.0 EcoBlue engine with 185PS.

Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz, however, are focusing on electric vans for 2020. The eCaddy, eCrafter should be launched in the UK next year, along with the eVito and eSprinter.
