In essentially every market it’s sold in currently, the Ford E-Transit has experienced tremendous success as sales continue to increase at a rapid rate. Back in June, Ford launched an E-Transit pilot program in Argentina with beverage company Cervecería y Maltería Quilmes, the global logistics outfit DHL, and several other companies, which is designed to let those customers try out the EV van before adding it to their fleet, as well as evaluate how the Ford E-Transit performs in that particular market. Now, the Ford E-Transit is officially set to launch in Argentina next year, the automaker has revealed, joining the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the refreshed Kuga Hybrid in that market, both of which launched there recently.
The Ford E-Transit is slated to go on sale in Argentina in Q1 of 2024 in multiple configurations – including the chassis cab model – along with features including adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, and lane keep assist. It’s powered by a single electric motor churning out 268 horsepower and 430Nm (317 pound-feet) of torque, and a battery with 68 kWh of usable capacity, giving the EV van a WLTP-rated range of up to 317 kilometers (197 miles).
Inside the cabin, the E-Transit features a 12-inch infotainment screen running SYNC 4, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, push button start, three different drive modes, and even a pre-conditioning feature, which allows owners/users to warm up the battery before their scheduled departure while it’s still on the charger, making for a more efficient drive.
Argentinian E-Transit customers can also partner with two different companies – ABB and Chargebox – to determine the best charging solution for their needs, whether that be at the homes of employees or at the worksite. Pricing for the Ford E-Transit in Argentina hasn’t yet been announced, but we should know more in the coming weeks leading up to the EV van’s official launch.
