This overview of the E-Transit covers nearly everything you need to know.

With a usable battery capacity of 67 kilowatt-hours, the 2022 Ford E-Transit will deliver an estimated range of 126 miles in the low-roof cargo van variant. The E-Transit has a starting MSRP under $45,000 for U.S. fleet customers and comes with an eight-year, 100,000-mile electric vehicle component warranty.

E-Transit features both AC and DC fast charging, and comes standard with a Ford Mobile Charger that can plug into a normal 120-volt outlet for slow and steady charging or into a 240-volt outlet for faster charging. Those seeking the fastest home charging solution can purchase the Ford Connected Charge Station, which can fully charge E-Transit in eight hours.

On a 115-plus-kilowatt DC fast charger, E-Transit cargo van low-roof models can achieve approximately 30 miles of range in 10 minutes and approximately 45 miles of range in 15 minutes. When plugged into a 240-volt outlet, cargo van low-roof models achieve approximately 10 miles per charging hour using the Ford Mobile Charger. Employing a Ford Connected Charge Station brings the number up to approximately 15 miles per charging hour.

Scheduled maintenance costs for the all-electric Transit are estimated to be 40 percent less than the average scheduled maintenance costs for a gas-powered 2020 Transit over eight years or 100,000 miles. With lower maintenance requirements and the opportunity to avoid fill-ups, companies can also improve customer uptime and productivity.

Pro Power Onboard, first introduced on the 2021 Ford F-150, is optional on the E-Transit, providing up to 2.4 kilowatts of power.

A standard 4G LTE modem unlocks available data subscriptions and delivers seamless connectivity to help commercial vehicle customers manage and optimize fleet efficiency. Additionally, Ford Commercial Solutions offers a range of dedicated electric vehicle services, including electric vehicle data enhancements from Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services.

Remote services like vehicle pre-conditioning – which optimizes cabin temperatures while the electric Transit is plugged in to optimize battery efficiency – are also available, as well as charging reports that enable fleet managers to reimburse drivers who bring their vans home in the evening.

E-Transit also brings SYNC 4 communications and entertainment technology to commercial vehicles, featuring a standard 12-inch touch screen, enhanced voice recognition, and cloud-enhanced navigation. SYNC over-the-air updates ensure that software and SYNC features will remain up-to-date at all times.

The all-electric Transit comes equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 technology such as available Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Assist, which together identify speed limits and automatically change the vehicle speed accordingly.

E-Transit also features additional standard Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies designed to help fleet customers reduce driver-based insurance claims, including Lane-Keeping System and PreCollision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. Available features include Blind Spot Information System with Blind Spot Assist, a 360-degree camera, and Reverse Brake Assist.

The electric Transit’s battery is located underneath the vehicle’s body, providing up to 487.3 cubic feet of cargo space inside the high-roof, extended wheelbase variant. The E-Transit’s rear-wheel drive and rear suspension were designed to optimize cargo space, creating a heavy-duty semi-trailing arm suspension system enabling better steering precision and more confident handling, plus better traction both in laden and unladen conditions.

For U.S. E-Transit cargo vans, Ford is targeting a maximum payload of 3,800 pounds and up to 4,290 pounds for cutaway versions – with an electric motor delivering a targeted 266 horsepower (198 kilowatts) and 317 pound-feet of torque across all configurations. In the U.S., the E-Transit is available with a choice of three roof heights and three body lengths, as well as in cargo, cutaway, and chassis cab versions.

The 2022 Ford E-Transit will be produced at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant, following a $100 million dollar investment, and is scheduled to launch in late 2021.
