One thousand upfit Ford electric vans going to Creative Bus Sales

Creative Bus Sales will purchase 1,000 new Ford E-Transit vans from Forest River, a company that has inked a partnership with Ford Motor Company to enable them to complete passenger upfits on the E-Transit 350 Cargo vans. The E-Transit is Ford’s first OEM electric, large passenger vehicle and is built using the trusted Transit 350 Cargo Van platform.

The E-Transit is an electric, full-size cargo van with a battery capacity of 68 kWh which produces peak power of 198 kW, equivalent to 266 HP and 317-ft.-lbs. of torque. The single-pack Lithium-ion battery has a rated charge time of eight hours from 0-100% (with 48A power) and is located underfloor, which does not diminish passenger or cargo volume.

E-Transits with several seating configurations, including up to 12 passengers (plus driver) or up to two wheelchair positions, are available for immediate delivery. Even more floorplan options will be available later this year when another large order of E-Transits is anticipated, the company says.
