The world of work vans is about to get more electrifying – literally. The 2022 Ford E-Transit is set to arrive with its all-electric powertrain and work-ready configurations. Here’s what to expect when it arrives.
On the outside, the E-Transit is quite similar to the existing Ford Transit lineup, with its European-inspired nose, high roofline, big windows, and more.
Inside, the cab area has all the basics expected from a work van, but the rear cargo area has all the same dimensions and mounting points for easy upfit transfers from the rest of the Transit lineup. These vans can be anything you want, from a bare-bones cargo hauler to a fully-equipped rolling workshop. Especially with its available Pro Power Onboard that provides 2.4 kilowatts of power for tools.
As for tech, the E-Transit comes standard with a 12-inch Sync 4 infotainment system With Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and over-the-air updates.
Powering the 2022 E-Transit is an electric motor that produces 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. This power heads to the rear wheels. Its 67-kWh battery affords it up to 126 miles of all-electric driving. High-roof models only have a 108-mile EV range. Charging times are as follows:
- 15-80% on 115-kWh DC Fast Charger: 34 minutes
- 15-80% on a 50-kW charger: 65 minutes
- 0-100% on 240-volt L2 charger (48 amps): 8 hours
- 0-100% on 240-volt L2 charger (30 amps): ~12 hours
The 2022 E-Transit will have optional Ford Co-Pilot 360, which includes adaptive cruise control, speed-limit-sign recognition, reverse-brake assist, and more.
