Ford Van News

An electric version of the Ford Transit will be available to the European market as soon as late summer next year Ford have announced.

This will prove to be a welcome addition to many businesses especially who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint as well as their overheads.

The van is expected to be able to travel up to 130 kilometers or 80 miles on a single charge and can charged from a 220 Volt outlet in 6 to 8 hours.

The outside of the van will be made by the factory that currently produces the Ford Transit van, which recently produced the 6 millionth Ford Transit, and the electric drive chain will be produced by Azure Dynamics Corp.
Pricing will be announced nearer the time the electric vehicles are offered to the European market.
