2022 Ford E-Transit brings full electrification to van life, and of course, van work

The 2022 Ford E-Transit electric van is finally here, and it’s designed to be the workhorse the business buyers expect from a van named Transit.

Ford is North America and Europe’s commercial truck and van leader, so the transition of fleet vehicles to zero emissions, especially for the fast-growing last-mile delivery segment, is critical to achieve our carbon neutrality goal by 2050,” said Jim Farley, Ford president and CEO.

Here’s everything you need to know about the specs of the 2022 E-Transit;

  • Power: 266 hp
  • Torque: 317 lb-ft
  • Usable Battery Size: 67 kWh Li-ion, single pack
  • Peak DCFC Rate: 115 kW
  • Onboard Charger Peak: 11.3 kW input and 10.5 kW output

Charging from 15% to 80% should take 34 minutes at a peak 115 kW. On a more common 50 kW DCFC, that time jumps to 65 minutes.

If you have a 48 amp Level 2 charger, 0% to 100% takes 8 hours. On a 30 amp charger, that is 12 hours.

The E-Transit will be available in all current van configurations, including the various roof height and van lengths. Additionally, cutaway and chassis cab variants will be available. Basically, whatever your business needs, there should be an E-Transit for it.

Maximum payload will be targeted at 3,800 pounds, and up to 4,290 for the cutaway versions. Because the batteries are located underneath the floor, all of the up fitter points remain the same, making it even easier for fleet buyers to switch to an EV.

Standard safety tech includes lane keeping, road edge detection, a driver alert system, automatic emergency braking, hill start assist, and automatic high beams.

Available tech includes speed sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, an automatic speed limiter, blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and active parallel and perpendicular parking.

Pricing for all of this will start at under $45,000 and will be available in late 2021.

Production of the E-Transit will take place at Ford’s plant in Kansas City, MO.
