Ford Tourneo Connect PHEV Officially Debuts

The redesigned Ford Tourneo Connect has been around for a couple of years now, and is essentially a rebadged Volkswagen Caddy with the same drivetrain options and output – albeit renamed to fit within the Blue Oval family. However, while select powertrains have been available to purchase in the region for a while now, the Ford Tourneo Connect PHEV had yet to launch in the van-hungry market. Now, on the heels of the debut of the all-new Ford Transit Connect for Europe, the Ford Tourneo Connect PHEV has been officially unveiled, too.

Like the plug-in hybrid version of the Transit Connect, the Ford Tourneo Connect PHEV pairs the rebadged turbocharged 1.5L EcoBoost engine with an electric motor and battery to deliver a combined output of 150 PS (148 horsepower) and 350 Nm (258 pound-feet) of torque, which flows to the wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The PHEV is projected to travel up to 110 kilometers (68 miles) on electric power alone, and can charge at speeds of up to 50 kW.

In terms of configurations, the new Ford Tourneo Connect PHEV can be had in standard length with seating for five, or the longer seven-seat Grand Tourneo Connect PHEV with a two-seat third row as standard. Either way, Ford says that passenger and cargo space is unaffected by the presence of the aforementioned battery pack. Inside the cabin, customers will also benefit from the presence of two 10-inch displays, along with the same tech features as the PHEV’s pure ICE counterparts.

Order banks for all-new Ford Tourneo Connect PHEV are currently scheduled to open up for European customers later in the summer of 2024, with the very first deliveries expected to begin during Q4 of this year, too.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    I’m sorry, but I won’t buy a rebadged Volkswagen.

      Agreed … just give us back the ’23 Transit Connect XLT Wagon in both the short an long wheel base … I’d be a buyer for the SWB model.
