A year after making its North American debut, the Ford E-Transit van has become an established vehice in the all-electric commercial cargo van market.
Ford announced last week it will be boosting E-Transit production at Kansas City Assembly Plant starting next month.
“Businesses looking to adopt battery electric technology is happening at a global scale, and E-Transit – along with the Ford Pro one-stop shop of software, services and charging solutions – is at the forefront of that revolution,” said Ted Cannis, Ford Pro CEO. “In its first year on the road, E-Transit has made an immediate impact, and we are just getting started.”
E-Transit has made sharp inroads into driving EV adoption. Based on 2022 CY Motor Intelligence Data, in the U.S., 6,500 E-Transit vans were sold through December 20224.
Since the all-electric van arrived in February 20225, Ford Pro E-Telematics data has shown that E-Transit drivers have saved more than 745,000 gallons of gas and more than 4.3 million kilograms of CO2 as compared to comparably sized gas-powered Transit vans.
The vans, which includes chassis cab and cutaway models, offer customers eight configurations to serve a wide range of business types, helping make it the market leader in 28 of 30 industries recognized by S&P Global.
