Order banks open in July.
Pricing expected to start around $57,925, in Canada, $44,990 in the US, for a cutaway model.
Although this vehicle is for commercial use, the Ford E-Transit represents an important step in the mass adoption of electric vehicles. Already, more than 450 commercial businesses that cover more than 45 vocations have demonstrated interest in the electric van. As of today, they can register for a new E-Transit.
The new Ford E-Transit will be priced from $57,925 for a cutaway model and the low-roof cargo van version, with the 67 kilowatt-hours, will deliver an estimated range of 202 kilometres on a full charge. The van will be available with a Pro Power Onboard generator with up to 2.4 kilowatts of available power. It will enable customers to use and recharge job site tools by just plugging them in.
“We’ve had so much interest early on, we wanted to open this registration site to serve customers with a build mix for their needs across all van body styles,” says Ted Cannis, general manager, North American commercial business. “Some customers want high-roof vans to maximize internal cargo space, while others need to install bodies on cutaways and chassis cabs. Customers will have an all-electric solution from box truck delivery to parking structure-friendly utility service vans and everything in between.”
The Ford E-Transit will offer the same cargo dimensions and standard mounting points as the gas-powered van so the transition from one to the other will be seamless. The E-Transit will be available later this year, and the all-electric F-150 hits dealerships in 2022.
Customers can sign up at the new E-Transit registration site on Fleet.Ford.ca.
