All-electric Ford E-Transit Custom: First details revealed
This is the all-new Ford E-Transit Custom – the all-new compact EV version of the UK’s favourite van.
With new styling, improved tech and up to 236 miles of range, it’ll hit the market in 2023. Here’s everything we know so far.
The E-Transit Custom looks significantly different to the standard E-Transit, with its proportions and size more in like with models like the latest Volkswagen Transporter and Mercedes eVito.
Up front, there’s a sharp set of headlights and a large faux grille that contrasts nicely – you certainly can’t tell this is an all-electric van from most angles.
The overall look is very much in line with the latest cars from the Ford brand, with many styling cues mirroring the latest Fiesta and Focus.
There’s no official pics of the interior yet, and specs, load-lugging abilities and space are all to be confirmed. However, we reckon it’ll mirror the latest E-Transit.
That means a large 12in touchscreen with Ford’s latest SYNC4 infotainment system, while a range of driving modes and regenerative braking will make driving the new E-Transit Custom a breeze.
Likewise, the exact drivetrain is still to be conformed, but it’ll likely be offered with the same 68kWh battery found in the standard E-Transit – that means it’ll likely get 180hp and 270hp power options, with range in excess of 230 miles.
The E-Transit Custom is just one of several all-electric Fords set to hit the market by 2025. We’ll bring you further details as soon as they’re revealed.
