Competing in the relatively new EV van segment, the Ford E-Transit immediately established its dominance and became the best-selling such vehicle throughout 2022 with a 73 percent share of the market. The Ford E-Transit has enjoyed a warm welcome from all sorts of commercial customers, including New York City – which has placed multiple orders for that model – as well as the United States Postal Service, AAA’s mobile electric vehicle charging service, DHL in both America and Europe, Seur, and even the U.S. Army’s Fort Knox fleet. Now, one year after its launch, The Blue Oval has shared some interesting information regarding the E-Transit, too.
Over the past year, Ford E-Transit customers have racked up over 12 million miles in the U.S. and Canada, saving more than 745,000 gallons of gas and over 4.3 million kg of CO2 when compared to its gas-powered Transit equivalent, according to Ford. Over the course of its lifetime, the low-roof E-Transit van could reduce CO2 output by 57 percent compared to its ICE counterpart as well.
In terms of sales, Ford moved a grand total of 6,500 E-Transit models last year, making it the best-selling electric van in not only the United States, but also Canada and Europe. It’s also the current sales leader in 28 of the 30 vocations recognized by S&P Global Mobility, including construction, retail, and government customers. The model currently holds a 61 percent share of that segment, too, which is precisely why FoMoCo is ramping up production of its EV van.
“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.”

I rent these to the entertainment industry in CA, the supposed most eco conscious tree hugging (private jet flying) industry ever, and have to beg them to use them in place if ice vans. The only reason they do is because the sustainability depts subsidize the cost. Sound familiar?
Oh Nob tell us another whodunnit.
Sustainability departments killing the ICE motor, LoL, sounds like a job for the “Gazpacho Police”!
