Ford Pro has revealed the all-new E-Tourneo Custom van with a battery-electric drivetrain that can deliver a targeted driving range of up to 230 miles.
It is one of four new all-electric Ford Pro models being launched in Europe by 2024. E-Tourneo Custom targets both personal-use and business customers, offering accommodation for up to eight occupants.
The new seats are lighter than those on the outgoing model and the second row features integrated seatbelts.
The new model introduces flexible rear seating, hands-free power side doors, a B&O audio system, digital key cards, a panoramic glass roof – and an innovative tilting steering wheel, the company said.
“The Tourneo brand has always stood for space and versatility – now we’re extending the appeal to a new generation of discerning EV buyers seeking performance and comfort,” said Hans Schep, General Manager, Ford Pro, Europe.
An onboard 11kW AC three-phase charger is capable of fully recharging the battery in less than eight hours, and a 15%-80% recharge takes around 41 minutes using a 125kW DC fast charger, the company said. The E‑Tourneo Custom’s charge profile front-loads the energy to enable quick top-ups; in lab testing, using a 125kW DC fast charger added almost 23 miles of range in just five minutes.
Customers can also choose a plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) version for applications where additional flexibility is required. In addition, the new model can be specified with the latest generation of Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and an all-wheel drive system.
Tourneo Custom models with EcoBlue diesel engines are scheduled to reach customers from mid-2023, with additional variants available from later in the year.
