A new Transit is coming. Purpose-built to be as tough, capable and versatile as ever. And now with zero-emissions while driving too. The E-Transit is the latest addition to Ford’s growing family of electrified vehicles, and the electric van is ushering in a new era for the iconic Transit van.
The 400-volt, 67 kWh battery-powered electric van is designed to help your business thrive whilst meeting its sustainability targets, delivering up to 350 km (217 miles) of driving range on a single charge.
The all-electric engine means the E-Transit is an ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ) compliant vehicle. And Pro Power Onboard lets you plug into a 2.3 kW / 230-volt socket to power your tools wherever you are.
Available in two height and three length variations, the E-Transit is a large electric van that will offer up to 15.1 cubic metres of cargo space.
So, whatever your requirements, there’s a configuration to help electrify your business.
Not only could you benefit from up to 40% reduction to your service cost of ownership when compared with diesel vehicles, but as an all-electric vehicle, the E-Transit completely eliminates emissions whilst driving. This enables you to drive through low-emission zones and may also help your business to meet its sustainability and carbon dioxide reduction goals. And you can increase the environmental benefits by using a renewable energy supplier when recharging your electric Transit.
With its large electric battery, the E-Transit enables you to power your tools wherever your work takes you. Available as an optional extra, Pro Power Onboard delivers 2.3 kW of power without the need for a separate portable generator. So, you can simply plug your drills, saws, laptops or anything else into the onboard 230-volt socket and get to work.
The intelligently designed E-Transit delivers zero-emission driving without compromising Transit’s legendary capability. The battery sits underneath the main body of the vehicle to maximise space in the large electric van. So, with a choice of 3 lengths and 2 roof heights, you’ll have between 9.5 and 15.1 cubic metres of available load space, capable of carrying up to 1,616 kg of cargo and with an optional power-side load door and full-height rear doors with downlighter, accessing your cargo is effortless too.
Ford SYNC 4 is a cloud-connected communication and entertainment system. Cloud connectivity gives SYNC 4 more advanced route planning and conversational voice recognition. While over-the-air updates ensure your E-Transit’s interface is continuously evolving. And with wireless smartphone integration, electric van charging management, a new 12” touchscreen, plus a whole lot more, you’ll experience a new world of connectivity with SYNC 4.
If you operate a larger fleet, our range of Ford Telematics solutions can help you manage it more effectively, to maximise productivity and minimise vehicle downtime. Providing powerful data-driven insights into the daily operation of your fleet, Ford Telematics lets you quickly review the health status of your vehicles and improve productivity by promptly identifying issues requiring attention.
A grant of up to €5,000 is available through the SEAI for a new Electric Van. Please see the SEAI website for everything you need to know about electric vehicle grants.
By making the switch to electricity, your business can take advantage of cheaper vehicle running costs. Recharging an electric van costs significantly less than refuelling, and if you charge at home or work, rather than at a public charging station, the costs will be even lower. Especially if you can take advantage of reduced energy tariffs for overnight charging.
Enjoy up to a 40% reduction on the service cost of ownership. With fewer moving parts, electric vehicles typically cost less to service over three years than a diesel engine. This helps minimise vehicle downtime and increase your business's productivity.
