Ford recently announced its plan to launch an electric van in the US and Europe. The electric vehicle is based on its predecessor Transit cargo vans. The company also revealed that the European launch is scheduled for 2021, a year ahead of that of the US.
However, the Ford electric van will be launched in the US and Canada by the end of 2022. The company has already revealed the electric versions of the Ford Mustang Mach-e and pickup truck F-150.
Nevertheless, it is a bit surprising that the launch of its electric van is set ahead of the US in Europe, even though the norms and regulations in the US are much more lenient than European countries. As per the sources, Ford says that they intend to expand their electric market share in the European region.
Highlights of Ford electric van
The electric van will support GPS tracking, geo-fencing, and much more. Besides, it will be equipped with a FordPass Connect modem and will support a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, which will be able to record driver data.
Apart from the above highlights, Ford’s transit electric van will support the FordPass Charging Network, which the company claims to be the most significant public network in the country.
However, we have minimal information about the specification, price, range, and trims that will finally hit the roads as the company has not disclosed anything yet. But we will let you know everything as soon as we have more authentic information.
On the other hand, Nissan already has its electric van e-NV200 in the market. What competition it will give to Ford’s electric van will be decided when Ford reveals complete information. Furthermore, when Ford finally launches the electric van, the market will already have seen an influx of EVs from several other players.
