2022 Ford E-Transit All-Electric Commercial Van Coming At Under $45k

New Ford E-Transit electrifies the commercial van segment

  • New 2022 Ford E-Transit makes the popular Transit van electric

  • Gets new technology such as SYNC 4 and built-in 2.4-kW onboard mobile generator

  • Low-roof cargo van version to offer 126 miles (201 kilometres) of range


The 2022 Ford E-Transit commercial van unveiled this morning offers commercial consumers an all-electric alternative to delivery. The first electric commercial van to be offered by a mainstream automaker, the new E-Transit can be serviced at any electric vehicle-certified Ford dealer across North America.

Powered by a 67-kWh battery pack, the E-Transit can offer up to 126 miles of range, or 201 kilometres. It can be charged on both 120-volt and 240-volt outlets, and 45 miles of range (72 kilometres) can be had in 15 minutes on a DC Fast Charger. With a 240-volt outlet, the E-Transit gains 10 miles (16 kilometres) of range every hour.

The electric motor delivers 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, and Ford says maximum payload will range from 3,800 pounds to 4,290 pounds in cutaway versions.

The battery won’t impact cargo space compared to a standard Transit, with a high-roof, extended wheelbase E-Transit offering 487 cubic feet of cargo space.

“More construction, emergency vehicles and utility services choose Ford commercial trucks and vans over any other manufacturer –and we’re committed to helping customers make the transition to zero-emission technology,” said Hau Thai-Tang,Ford chief product platform operations officer. “E-Transit is a data-rich, connected platform that will help our fleet customers unlock greater productivity. The value for our commercial customers grows over time as more connected vehicles join the network.

Along with its all-electric powertrain, the new 2022 Ford E-Transit will offer a range of technologies meant to make life on the road easier. 4G LTE wi-fi access keeps drivers connected while a new SYNC4 infotainment system housed in a 12-inch touch screen is a first in a Ford commercial van. This infotainment system can also receive over-the-air updates.

The E-Transit also comes with an onboard, 2.4-kW power generator that can be used to plug tools or charge, like in the new Ford F-150.

A range of other features include vehicle pre-conditioning to optimize cabin temperatures and charging reports that give fleet managers the opportunity to reimburse drivers who charge at home.

The 2022 Ford E-Transit will also get standard Lane-Keeping Assist and Pre-Collision Assist with Emergency Braking. Available features in the safety department include a 360-degree backup camera, blind spot warning, reverse brake assist, adaptive cruise control, speed sign recognition and intelligent speed assist which recognizes and adapts to posted speed limits.

The advantages of all-electric powertrain in a commercial van are numerous. Ford estimates that maintenance costs for an electric Transit will be 40 percent less than a traditional Transit over 8 years or 100,000 miles (160,000 kilometres).

The new Ford E-Transit will start at $45,000 in the US and will come with a standard 8-year/100,000 mile warranty.
