Since its launch, the Ford E-Transit has proven to be a popular entity in the EV van segment, where it has remained the number one seller for quite a few months now. The Blue Oval only expects demand for these electrified haulers to grow in the coming years, so it makes sense that the second-gen E-Transit is already in development. Now, the latest product roadmap from AutoForecast Solutions suggests that the next-generation Ford E-Transit is expected to enter production in 2026.
According to this new product roadmap, the next-gen E-Transit will enter production on February 23rd, 2026 and continue being built until December 21st, 2035. The new EV van – like all of FoMoCo’s second-gen all-electric vehicles – will also ride on dedicated underpinnings, in this case the same platform that it will share with the F-150 Lightning and other full-size trucks, vans, and utility models.
Interestingly, AutoForecast Solutions is reporting that the next-gen E-Transit will be built at the Ohio Assembly plant rather than the Kansas City Assembly plant where it’s currently produced. This could be the result of the automaker’s recent multi-billion dollar investment into its midwestern plants, which will result in the creation of 6,200 new U.S.-based manufacturing jobs, the conversion of 3,000 temporary positions into permanent ones, and around 74,000 new indirect jobs to boot.
In addition to this information pertaining to the next-gen Ford E-Transit, AutoForecast Solutions previously revealed that the second-gen Ford F-150 Lightning is due to arrive in 2025, the Ford Ranger EV in 2029, and the all-electric Ford Bronco in 2029, all of which aim to continue the automaker’s EV push that involves a whopping $50 billion dollar investment over the coming years.
