This Is The All-New, All-Electric 2022 Ford E-Transit

Sponsored Links

Back in April of last year, Ford revealed that an all-electric version of the Ford Transit was in development. Then, this past June, then Ford CFO and now Ford CEO Jim Farley announced that the electrified Transit would arrive in mid-2022, alongside the Ford F-150 EV. However, shortly after announcing that it would reveal the 2022 Ford E-Transit this week, the automaker accelerated the model’s launch to late 2021. And now, Ford has officially revealed the all-electric Transit.

With a usable battery capacity of 67 kilowatt-hours, the 2022 Ford E-Transit will deliver an estimated range of 126 miles in the low-roof cargo van variant. The E-Transit has a starting MSRP under $45,000 for U.S. fleet customers and comes with an eight-year, 100,000-mile electric vehicle component warranty.

E-Transit features both AC and DC fast charging, and comes standard with a Ford Mobile Charger that can plug into a normal 120-volt outlet for slow and steady charging or into a 240-volt outlet for faster charging. Those seeking the fastest home charging solution can purchase the Ford Connected Charge Station, which can fully charge E-Transit in eight hours.

On a 115-plus-kilowatt DC fast charger, E-Transit cargo van low-roof models can achieve approximately 30 miles of range in 10 minutes and approximately 45 miles of range in 15 minutes. When plugged into a 240-volt outlet, cargo van low-roof models achieve approximately 10 miles per charging hour using the Ford Mobile Charger. Employing a Ford Connected Charge Station brings the number up to approximately 15 miles per charging hour.

Scheduled maintenance costs for the all-electric Transit are estimated to be 40 percent less than the average scheduled maintenance costs for a gas-powered 2020 Transit over eight years or 100,000 miles. With lower maintenance requirements and the opportunity to avoid fill-ups, companies can also improve customer uptime and productivity.

Pro Power Onboard, first introduced on the 2021 Ford F-150, is optional on the E-Transit, providing up to 2.4 kilowatts of power.

A standard 4G LTE modem unlocks available data subscriptions and delivers seamless connectivity to help commercial vehicle customers manage and optimize fleet efficiency. Additionally, Ford Commercial Solutions offers a range of dedicated electric vehicle services, including electric vehicle data enhancements from Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services.

Remote services like vehicle pre-conditioning – which optimizes cabin temperatures while the electric Transit is plugged in to optimize battery efficiency – are also available, as well as charging reports that enable fleet managers to reimburse drivers who bring their vans home in the evening.

E-Transit also brings SYNC 4 communications and entertainment technology to commercial vehicles, featuring a standard 12-inch touch screen, enhanced voice recognition, and cloud-enhanced navigation. SYNC over-the-air updates ensure that software and SYNC features will remain up-to-date at all times.

The all-electric Transit comes equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 technology such as available Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Assist, which together identify speed limits and automatically change the vehicle speed accordingly.

E-Transit also features additional standard Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies designed to help fleet customers reduce driver-based insurance claims, including Lane-Keeping System and PreCollision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. Available features include Blind Spot Information System with Blind Spot Assist, a 360-degree camera, and Reverse Brake Assist.

The electric Transit’s battery is located underneath the vehicle’s body, providing up to 487.3 cubic feet of cargo space inside the high-roof, extended wheelbase variant. The E-Transit’s rear-wheel drive and rear suspension were designed to optimize cargo space, creating a heavy-duty semi-trailing arm suspension system enabling better steering precision and more confident handling, plus better traction both in laden and unladen conditions.

For U.S. E-Transit cargo vans, Ford is targeting a maximum payload of 3,800 pounds and up to 4,290 pounds for cutaway versions – with an electric motor delivering a targeted 266 horsepower (198 kilowatts) and 317 pound-feet of torque across all configurations. In the U.S., the E-Transit is available with a choice of three roof heights and three body lengths, as well as in cargo, cutaway, and chassis cab versions.

The 2022 Ford E-Transit will be produced at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant, following a $100 million dollar investment, and is scheduled to launch in late 2021.

  1. This seems like a great deal for local delivery and service companies. The price is low, and the range is good enough for many uses.

  2. The passenger versions may prove popular for hotel and airport shuttles.
    Time will tell how reliable they will be especially in cold climates when the heater will be going full blast.

    • For cold areas in winter, they should buy the plug-in hybrid version, being presently tested in Europe. It will be available in the U.S. by 2022.

  3. The best part of this electric van is the minimum maintenance needed. Just check tire pressures and windshield washer fluid once a week. Then once a year they check the brake and coolant fluids. Replacements are just wiper blades and cabin air filter. That is all it needs!

    Maintenance savings is huge in cost and time with all electrics, beginning with the Mustang Mach-E, now in production and on sale in December.

  4. The bad part is with only 126 miles on a low roof being the optimum, how about you average high roof, loaded down with tools, with the heater/air going? Maybe 50-80 miles? What good is that ?

  5. I have visited MALL OF AMERICA many times over the years for vacation. There is an area for the hotel shuttle vans and buses to pick up people. The last couple times there was a converted RAM PROMASTER to all electric renamed ZEINITH. Last year I was talking to my hotel shuttle driver about those and he said that they always keep a big box of hand warmers in case the drivers are afraid that it will konk out because of the heaters and lights. So you would have a dead electric van full of people waiting for a gasoline engine powered van or bus to get the folks back to the hotel. Many of these people are over the age of 70.
    They will get better but we’re not there yet.
