Ford has unveiled a fully electric version of its best-selling Transit Custom.
Called the E-Transit Custom, it joins the larger Transit in the firm’s range of electric commercial vehicles. Though it can’t quite match the full-sized Transit for outright space, it more than makes up for this in terms of electric range.
So while the standard E-Transit will manage up to 196 miles on a single charge, the Custom will return 236 miles. This more than outclasses many of its key rivals, too, with the Citroen e-Dispatch able to deliver 200 miles and the Mercedes eSprinter less than 100.
Ford will release further details about the E-Transit Custom until September – ahead of production commencing in the second half of next year – but has said that a number of features have been installed following conversations with van drivers and owners.
