Ford announces E-Transit Custom specifications

Final specifications for the new Ford E-Transit Custom have been announced, with sales due to start in the UK later this year alongside a new Ford E-Tourneo Custom passenger variant.

The new models will come with a 64kWh battery pack giving a maximum driving range ofup to 209 miles via a 135PS or 217PS electric motor, with a potent 285PS motor being offered later, fitted to the sports-oriented MS-RT model. The drive motor is mounted beneath the rear floor to maximise load space.

The E-Transit Custom is also the first-ever electric vehicle to use vapour-injected heat pump technology to heat and cool the cabin.

A full charge with an 11kW home charger takes about 6.7 hours, while users can also charge from 10-80 per cent in about 39 minutes on a 125kW DC fast charger. The Ford E-Transit it also rated to tow up to 2300kg, the best in its class.

The van will be offered in L1 and L2 body lengths with panel van, double cab and Kombi interior layouts, as well as the plush Ford E-Tourneo passenger model. Four trim levels will be offered – Trend, Limited, Sport and MS-RT.

Prices and full UK specifications will be announced closer to the Ford E-Transit’s UK launch in late 2024.

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.
