Ford E-Transit (2022): At A Glance
The E-Transit is Ford's new large electric van. It will cover up to 196 miles on a single charge and offer payloads up to 1758kg. The E-Transit is available as a panel van, double-cab-in-van and chassis cab body styles with multiple lengths and roof heights.
Prices start from £42,695 (excluding VAT) but Ford claims service maintenance and repair cost of ownership for the E-Transit will be 40 per cent lower than equivalent diesel-powered models.
Gross vehicle weights will range from 3.5 to 4.25 tonnes, which means Category B licence holders will be able to drive the largest version of the E-Transit without the need for additional training. Power will come from an electric motor with a choice of 135kW or 198kW maximum output, with the latter producing a whopping 430Nm of torque.
Ford says the E-Transit can charge from 15 - 80 per cent in just 34 minutes from a 115kW DC fast charger. An overnight full charge from a standard 230-volt AC supply takes just over eight hours. What's more, due to the batteries being stored under the vehicle floor, the E-Transit will match the rear-wheel Transit's maximum loadspace of 15 cubic metres.
