ALL-NEW, ALL-ELECTRIC E-TRANSIT COURIER UNVEILED
Ford Pro has revealed the E-Transit Courier, a ground-up new all-electric commercial vehicle 1 bringing enhanced connectivity and productivity for compact van customers. The compact van enters production later in 2024; diesel- and petrol-engine models can be ordered from summer 2023 for delivery before year-end.
To further boost productivity, E-Transit Courier has been completely redesigned around a larger, more flexible cargo area that delivers 25 per cent more load volume than the outgoing model, plus enhanced capability including increased payload 2 and space for two Euro pallets.
E-Transit Courier’s all-electric powertrain has been engineered to deliver an uncompromised driving experience for customers, including a powerful 100 kW motor and one-pedal driving capability. Full performance and range details will be confirmed closer to launch.
E-Transit Courier’s all-new body design delivers increased load capacity in all dimensions. Width between the rear wheel arches is 1,220 mm, enabling the compact van to carry two Euro pallets for the first time. Total cargo volume is now 2.9 m3, 25 per cent more than the outgoing model. This can be further increased using the new load-through bulkhead feature, which enables customers to carry items such as planks or pipe over 2,600 mm long. Maximum payload for the all-electric model is 700 kg, with a maximum towing weight of 750 kg.
E-Transit Courier helps businesses to stand out, with a bold, distinctive exterior design and a spacious, practical interior designed around compact van users’ needs. The all-new model offers a very comprehensive standard equipment specification including unique cabin features with “squircle” steering wheel design to improve leg room and visibility for the driver, as well as a column-mounted gear shifter, push-button ignition and an electronic handbrake to deliver increased configurable storage space.
The “digiboard” instrument panel contains a 12-inch digital cluster and 12-inch centre touchscreen with Ford’s latest SYNC 4 system. 6 Subscription-based Connected Navigation 7 can boost productivity and reduce driver workload with updates on traffic, parking, charging and local hazards. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility is standard. 8 An innovative, class-unique Office Pack includes a foldaway flat work surface and lighting to make using a laptop, filling in paperwork or taking a break in the cab easier and more comfortable.
