Ford E-Transit Custom confirmed for Australia

Australian workers will soon have the opportunity to get their hands on a completely new vehicle that will change the way they work and play.

Australian exchanges will soon have a chance to go electric.

Ford has confirmed that its new E-Transit Custom van will go into production next year due to arriving at local showrooms soon after.

This is part of Ford’s plan to bring at least five electrified vehicles to market by the end of 2024.

The E-Transit Custom will join the Larger E-Transit electric van and the Escape plug-in hybrid SUV in the Blue Oval’s electrified local lineup. Both models will arrive in showrooms in the coming months.

Ford Australia Chief Andrew Birkic said, The E-Transit Custom is exactly the versatile and practical type of van that business customers are looking for, with the added benefit of zero-emission efficiency. We focus on deeply understanding the needs of commercial vehicle customers and providing them with the best of our global range. “

Ford says the vehicle will be a standout in the one-ton segment and will have full towing capability and will be compatible with ultra-fast battery charging.

Ford is jaw-dropping about the details for the E-Transit Custom, but the larger E-Transit uses a 68kWh battery that offers 317km of range and an electric motor that produces 198kW / 420Nm driving the rear wheels. .

Despite the Blue Oval’s push in electrified vehicles, it’s still unlikely to get its hands on the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV sold in Europe and North America.

The Mustang Mach-E combines handsome, muscular style with powerful zero-emission power.

The top-of-the-range Mustang Mach E GT has 358kW and 860Nm which translates into a figure of 4.4 seconds, outperforming the regular V8 engine coupe.
