Ford says that the E-Transit will have a range of 126 miles for the for the low-roof cargo van. They haven't said what the range will be for the other roof heights.

It's powered by a 67.0-kWh battery

This seems a bit too low for me, especially if that isn't for a loaded van. Anyone else feel the same?

For most owners the 126-mile range should be enough. Here's what Ford had in mind with that number:

"Cannis said Ford's research shows commercially owned vehicles travel an average of 74 miles a day, so a van with a 126-mile range should get through the day without needing to recharge.

The van will feature both AC and DC fast-charging and come standard with a mobile charger that can plug into either a 120-volt or 240-volt outlet.

With a 115-plus-kilowatt DC fast charger, the low-roof cargo van variant can gain up to 30 miles of range in 10 minutes and 45 miles in 15 minutes, Ford said. Using a mobile charger plugged into a 240-volt outlet, the low-roof cargo van variant can charge about 10 miles per hour.

Ford also will sell an at-home charging station that can fully charge the van in eight hours"

It turns out Ford did some extensive research to make the range tailored to E-Transit owners.

"By leveraging more than 30 million miles of Ford Telematics™ data, we learned that the average daily range for commercial vans in the U.S. is 74 miles. Of course we also understand that there are days when those distances are higher, and recognize the need to adjust for factors such as cold weather. We consequently designed E-Transit with a targeted 126 miles of range (Cargo Van low-roof models). * Our goal is to be a one-stop shop for our commercial vehicle customers. And we'll have more announcements in the future on additional derivatives that offer more capability and range.

*Based on full charge. USA targeted range reflecting current capability based on analytical projection consistent with US EPA MCT drive cycle methodology (www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/pdfs/EPA test procedure for EVs-PHEVs-11-14-2017.pdf). Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance and lithium-ion battery age."

The Ford website and new promo material for the E-Transit also confirm the figures above.

"Did you know the average daily range for commercial vans in the U.S. is 74 miles? We consequently designed E-Transit with a targeted 126 miles of range (Cargo Van low‑roof models)."

And come time to charge we'll have access to 16,000 charging stations.

"Backed by 16,000+ public charging stations in North America, we offer an ecosystem of charging solutions to meet all your charging needs. Whether your fleet of vehicles is at the depot, on the road or at home, we have you covered."
