With the success of the Ford E-Transit, Ford Pro expands its portfolio of all-electric offerings with the addition of the E-Transit Courier. The all-new, all-electric compact van is set to enter production later in 2024 and will be fully integrated into Ford Pro’s platform of software and connected services. Redesigned around a larger, more flexible cargo area, the E-Transit Courier is expected to deliver 25% more load volume than its predecessor. The redesigned cargo area also has increased payload capacity and the space to accommodate two Euro pallets.
Powering the E-Transit Courier is a 100-kW (134 horsepower) electric motor and it will offer one-pedal driving capability. These are the only performance specifications Ford has announced, so expect full performance and range details to be confirmed closer to the vehicle’s launch next year. Ford Pro Charging targets an 11-kW AC overnight home charge of 5.7 hours, while DC fast charging capability will support up to 100 kW. That means the E-Transit Courier should get about 87 km (54 miles) of range in 10 minutes, and charging from 10% to 80% will take under 35 minutes. The vehicle will come with a year of complimentary access to the BlueOval Charge Network, which is scheduled to include half a million public chargers by 2024.
For tech, Ford is equipping the E-Transit Courier with a 12″ digital cluster and 12″ center touchscreen powered by SYNC 4. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility will be standard. The interior is also equipped with an innovative Office Pack, which includes a foldaway flat work surface and lighting to increase productivity. A comprehensive suite of advanced driver assistance features will be standard, while an optional bundle adds Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering and Stop & Go, Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, as well as Intersection Assist and Reverse Brake Assist.
Look for the all-new Ford E-Transit Courier to make its public debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, U.K. from April 18 to April 20.
“E-Transit Courier moves its segment up a level with uncompromised EV performance, higher load capacity and fully connected support including end-to-end charging solutions, Ford Pro E-Telematics and uptime-boosting FORDLiive,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe. “Ford Pro’s long-standing market leadership gives us unrivalled insight into customers’ needs and means we can help them get big productivity from their compact vans with more connectivity and capability than ever before.”
