All-Electric 2022 Ford E-Transit Unveiled
The new zero-emission Ford E-Transit debuts in North America
Leading the Charge
The best-selling van in Canada* is about to lead businesses into the future. Introducing the all new Ford E-Transit. The only electric work van that has the backing of the Ford Motor Company. That means you get much more than just electrification. You get an entire ecosystem of products, support and know-how from a company with a long, proven legacy of getting the job done. So, it’s not just a new Transit. It’s a new way of doing business.
Maintenance & Charging
One of the key benefits of an electric vehicle is the reduced need for maintenance, which in turn cuts costs for fleets. Ford claims maintenance costs for the E-Transit will be an estimated 40% less than for the gas-powered version of the van (over 8 years/160,000 km).
The E-Transit will also be backed by an 8-year/160,000 km electric vehicle component warranty. Both AC and DC fast charging options will be available for the E-Transit, with either 120- or 240-volt outlets. With Ford’s Connected Charge Station a full charge will be possible in eight hours.
An optional Pro Power Onboard system will provide up to 2.4 kilowatts of power, turning the E-Transit into a mobile generator for the job site, able to powers tools and other electric equipment.
Connected Fleet Management Tools
A big bonus for fleet customers is the suite of vehicle management tools Ford is offering—available through an app and a web-based interface. These tools will allow fleet managers to monitor the performance of individual vans, manage energy usage and gain key insights into the performance of each van.
Vehicle-specific data, such as kWh consumption, charge speed, distance to empty and more, will allow managers to better understand how individual vans are operating in real-time.
Alerts will notify fleet operators if a vehicle is being stolen, used without authorization, being towed or if a van has been damaged while parked. GPS tracking will allow managers to see the location of each vehicle even if it’s turned off.
To better manage individual drivers, an integrated Driver ID system will ask each driver to enter their individual PIN into the SYNC screen, which means fleet managers will have a record of which drivers were using which vehicles.
Ford’s advanced SYNC4 voice assistant technology will even be able to coach drivers in real-time. This means that if the system detects that a driver is going too fast, braking harshly or not wearing a seatbelt, an audio message will tell them to correct their behaviour.
Like its gas-powered sibling, the E-Transit will be very configurable—available with a choice of three roof heights and three body lengths, as well as in cargo, cutaway and chassis cab versions.
The Ultimate Business Partner
Before we electrified the Transit we talked to real world businesses and designed it around them. For instance, the targeted range of up to 203 kilometres was based on what they told us they needed to get the job done day in and day out. So, businesses get a true work van designed to meet their real-world challenges. Offering all of the benefits of an electric vehicle without sacrificing the capability.
The Power of Choice
One size never fits all. That’s why we offer so many choices in electric work vans. Just like the gas-powered Transit Cargo Van, the E-Transit comes in 3 lengths, 3 roof heights. It’s also available in Chassis Cab and Cutaway models. Which means it’s easy to configure to your business. Other vans just aren’t up to the task.
We built the Ford E-Transit to help you build your business. So, whether it’s reducing operating cost or helping you take on jobs other people can’t, you can feel confident the E-Transit has your back.
