Over 1,000 customers have registered to purchase over 20,000 Ford E-Transit vans since the company’s registration site went live May 4. Order banks for the new, all-electric cargo van open June 21.
Built alongside the Transit at Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant, the company says the E-Transit is designed to serve a range of commercial applications beyond last-mile delivery with a choice of eight configurations, including cargo van with three roof heights and three lengths, plus chassis cab and cutaway models.
Ford says the E-Transit is part of the company’s over-$30 billion investment in electrification through 2025. Ford says the van will be a centerpiece vehicle in the new Ford Pro global vehicle services and distribution business Ford recently launched to increase uptime and reduce ownership costs for commercial customers.
