If you thought Ford was going to stop at new electric trucks, think again.

The Blue Oval is adding an all-electric cargo van to their line-up, and van-life fans and businesses from all over the country are sure to be lining up to get their own e-Transit van. We expect to see the first deliveries to dealerships soon.

Ready to cut energy expenses as you travel for work or play? Then the e-Transit cargo van may be for you.

Ford Puts Greater Focus on Electric Vehicles

Visit our Itasca Ford dealership within the next few years, and it’s likely you’ll see a variety of electric vehicles – EVs for short – for sale. This year, Ford announced it was doubling production of the F-150 Lightning, an all-electric truck, by mid-2023 in response to high demand, with the first ones hitting the road this year.

The e-Transit, a configurable all-electric cargo van, will help Ford gain market share over the existing 40 percent they hold with their standard combustion-engine Transit vans.

And with states adopting more strict emissions regulations, Ford anticipates the van market to reach $1.1 million in commercial sales through 2030. For comparison, each 2022 e-Transit van starts at just $47,000, which is close to the cost of their cargo van with a standard gas engine.

What’s in the Electric Van?

The e-Transit is a no-frills vehicle with a few standard features and various upgrade packages you can purchase when you place a special order through Zeck Ford Itasca.

Standard features include the latest Ford Sync infotainment system and bucket seats. Ceiling height, body length, color, and interior upgrade packages can be customized and configured to your liking.

And Ford makes sure you don’t have to give up power in exchange for an electric motor. The standard electric motor achieves up to 266 horsepower, 317 pound-feet of torque, and 198 kilowatts of power. And with Pro Power OnBoard, you can run power tools or small kitchen appliances through the built-in 2.4kW generator, like a much-needed coffee pot or toaster for breakfast on the go.

Talk to a personal shopper at Zeck Ford Itasca to learn more about the full list of features and options for the e-Transit cargo van.

Is Charging the Van Going to Be a Problem?

No need to worry, road warriors! Although electric vehicles are a relatively new concept, you don’t need to fret about how and where you can charge your e-Transit van when you’re out on the open road.

The Blue Oval Charging Network is available nationwide with 63,000 Ford-branded charging stations. You can, of course, use generic EV charging stations, too. And as the demand for electric vehicles grows, we anticipate even more charging stations popping up.
