Ahead of its arrival next year, Ford has presented its E-Transit Custom all-electric van. The new eLCV follows on from the recently launched E-Transit, and will offer a range of up to 236 miles on a charge.
The first of four Ford Pro electric models arriving by 2024, the E-Transit Custom will include ultra-rapid DC charging, as well as Ford’s ProPower Onboard vehicle-to-load (V2L) charging, allowing users to draw power from the vehicle for items such as power tools, lights, or other systems.
Exact specifications are yet to be announced, though the range is likely to be achieved when the eLCV undergoes official WLTP testing closer to launch. Sharing a number of features with the E-Transit, it is expected that the E-Transit Custom will also be available in a variety of motor outputs and battery sizes, allowing for varying driving ranges depending on budget.
Using the E-Transit as a base for speculation, expectations are that the E-Transit Custom will feature a 68 kWh battery, and there is a choice of 135 kW or 198 kW electric motors. There is no reason why these shouldn’t be available with the more compact model due next year.
As well as the panel van, there will likely be double-cab in-van versions, different heights and lengths, as well as the E-Tourneo Custom people carrier. All will be built on a platform that has been developed with and shared with Volkswagen.
