Ford Australia has confirmed we will get an all-electric version of the popular Transit Custom van.
Known as the Ford E-Transit Custom, the offering will land in Australia in 2024, becoming the third electrified vehicle in the Ford range down-under.
The first electric-powered Ford vehicle offered in Australia will be the Ford E-Transit, it’s due in Australian showrooms later this year (we have more details on that offering here).
“The E-Transit Custom is exactly the kind of versatile, practical van business customers are looking for, with the benefit of zero-emissions efficiency,” – Andrew Birkic, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand.
“We are focused on deeply understanding the needs of commercial vehicle customers and bringing them the best of our global line-up.”
The E-Transit Custom will have a one-tonne capacity, though there’s no official word yet on what the range offered by the electric powertrain will provide.
Addressing the range, Ford promises the all-electric commercial vehicle “will offer a compelling range”.
Ford tells us the new E-Transit Custom is built with electrification and next-gen connectivity at its heart.
“It’s packed with intelligent software and connectivity tools, helping owners to outsmart the day-to-day, maximize vehicle uptime, and ultimately to increase productivity for businesses. Offering compelling range, full towing capability and DC fast charging, E-Transit Custom was developed using in-depth insights from van users to ensure a seamless customer experience.”
The Ford E-Transit Custom will be built in Turkey and we will continue to update you with local information on the electric van as details are confirmed.
