What MoT class does a Ford e-Transit require?

I am trying to find out what MoT class a Ford e-Transit 390 comes under? The gross weight is 3900kg but I have had different service centres say variously class 4, class 7 and HGV?

The Department for transport allows a derogation for electric vans, meaning those weighing up to 4.25 tonnes are treated in the same way as diesel vans with a GVW of up to 3.5 tonnes, allowing for the extra battery weight. This applies to both licensing and MOTs, meaning an e-Transit 390 requires a Class 7 MOT.
