Custom Specifications Ford E-Transit 2024 Released, Up To 217 HP

Ford launched the E-Transit Custom in May but without going into technical specifications other than mentioning the range. The missing pieces of the puzzle have now fallen into place as Blue Oval’s commercial arm, Ford Pro, has released the information. Without further ado, we know that the electric workhorse will have a maximum payload capacity of 1,100 kilograms (2,425 pounds) and a towing capacity of 2,000 kg (4,409 lbs).

The 2024 E-Transit Custom in its basic configuration will offer 135 horsepower (100 kilowatts) while the more powerful variant is rated at 217 hp (160 kW). In both configurations, the instantly available torque is 415 Newton-meters (306 pound-feet). It’s muscular enough to offer a diesel-like level of payload capacity, according to the Ford Pro.

The battery pack has a usable capacity of 74 kWh and uses the pouch cells also found in the F-150 Lightning. Compared to the batteries installed in the E-Transit, they have a 12 percent higher energy density and allow the E-Transit Custom to cover a distance of 380 kilometers (236 miles) on a single charge per WLTP. The battery can be charged up to 125 kW, taking 41 minutes to go from 15 to 80 percent. Fully charging the battery at 11 kW takes just under eight hours.

Just like the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, this van also offers two-way charging thanks to Ford’s Onboard ProPower system to boost power tools and other devices up to 2.3 kW. Other notable features include an independent rear suspension, a lower vehicle floor and a 10 percent increased drag coefficient compared to the Transit Custom.

Available as a single or double cab as well as a wagon, the E-Transit Custom is offered with two wheelbases and two roof heights. The panel van provides a maximum load volume of between 5.8 to 9 cubic meters and a load compartment length of 3.45 meters. Interestingly, the Ford Pro is touting the widest-opening sliding door in its segment after rearranging the B and C pillars.

Ford Pro will start production of the new E-Transit Custom at the Kocaeli plant in Turkey from autumn 2023, with prices to be revealed closer to market launch.
