Suppose you are looking for a small electric van that can handle any urban delivery or trade job. In that case, you should check out the Ford E-Transit Courier, the latest addition to Ford's electrified commercial vehicle lineup. The Ford E-Transit Courier is a fully electric, connected, productive compact van that debuts in Europe's most powerful commercial vehicle range – Ford Pro.
Manufactured at the Ford Otosan Craiova plant, the E-Transit Courier is an all-new model that strengthens the Ford Pro range of commercial electric vehicles and supports Ford's global plan to expand the range of electric vehicles rapidly. It is part of Ford's more than $50 billion global program to lead the electrification revolution, along with the larger Ford E-Transit and Ford E-Transit Custom models.
The E-Transit Courier offers unrivaled productivity thanks to its uncompromising EV performance, extremely generous and easy-to-set-up cargo area, and access to connected Ford Pro services. It is powered by a 134-hp electric motor that delivers smooth and responsive acceleration, as well as low maintenance costs and zero emissions.
The battery size and range of the Ford E-Transit Courier electric van have yet to be revealed, but Ford claims it can be fully charged in less than six hours using an 11-kW AC wall charger or in as little as 35 minutes using a 100-kW DC fast charger. The charging can be scheduled via the in-vehicle touchscreen or depot software to take advantage of cheaper overnight energy prices.
The E-Transit Courier also boasts a larger and more versatile cargo area than its predecessor, with 25% more cargo volume, a payload of up to 700 kg, and space for two euro pallets. A load-through bulkhead feature allows drivers to carry long items like pipes or planks that are over 8.5 feet long. The rear doors open up to 180 degrees for easy loading and unloading.
The interior of the Ford E-Transit Courier is designed to offer comfort and convenience for the driver, with a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12-inch center touchscreen running Ford's latest Sync 4 system. Wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto are standard, as well as wireless software updates and always-on connectivity with the Ford Pro ecosystem.
