The 2022 Ford E-Transit was originally revealed last fall as the first-ever all-electric version of the perenially best-selling Ford Transit. Since then, the E-Transit has begun customer testing in Europe, and Ford has announced targeted pricing for the EV van in the U.S. Now, Ford has released pricing and launch info for the 2022 Ford E-Transit in the UK as well.
The E-Transit, which is making its European public debut at this week’s 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, will feature a base MSRP of £42,000 ($57,749 USD) when it launches in the UK next year, which is a bit more than the U.S. Transit’s starting price of $47,185, though it’s unclear which configuration Ford is using here. Order banks for the 2022 Ford E-Transit will open up for UK customers in October, while the automaker says it will provide an estimated cost of ownership that’s 40 percent cheaper than comparable diesel-powered models.
The 2022 E-Transit features a 68 kWh battery pack, which provides a best-in-class targeted driving range of up to 317 kilometers (197 miles) on the European WLTP cycle. Customers can choose between 135 kW or 198 kW outputs, each with 430 Nm (317 pound-feet) of torque, providing up to 1,758 kilograms (3,875 pounds) of maximum payload capacity. A total of 25 E-Transit variants are available, including van, chassis cab, and double cab in van configurations with multiple lengths and roof heights to choose from, as well as 2.3 kW in portable power from Ford’s Pro Power Onboard generator.
Ford Pro charging specialists will be available to help customers with charging solutions starting this October, including both hardware and installation, as well as software tools like Ford Telematics and the Ford Charge Assist app to monitor and optimize charging.
The 2022 E-Transit will be available in two trims in the UK – Base and Trend. Base trim models come with a variety of standard features including SYNC 4 with a 12-inch touchscreen, electronic climate control, keyless start, heated seats, Ford’s Quickclear Windscreen, heated power mirrors, a FordPass Connect modem, a lifetime subscription to FordPass Pro or Ford Telematics Essentials, one year of free access to the FordPass charging network, and a one-year subscription to Ford Telematics for fleet customers.
Stepping up to Trend trim adds a variety of active safety features including the Ford Connected Navigation System, cruise control, Pre‑Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Lane-Keeping Aid, and front and rear parking sensors. Many of these features are shared with the ICE-powered 2022 Transit, which was revealed earlier today.
