Ford Plans to Launch Electric Transit Commercial Van in Europe Soon

Ford Plans to Launch Electric Transit Commercial Van in Europe Soon

Ford is giving its Kuga SUV a heavy revamp for 2020 - with buyers given the choice of no fewer than three hybrid powertrains along with a range of trim levels. Besides the Transit EV, the company made an announcement about the launch of a bunch of other electrified consumer-facing models in the Europe market.

What we can not deny is that Ford's electric vehicle will be performance oriented and that it will go well more than 300 miles (EPA) on a full battery. According to Ford, despite the increase in floor height on the hybrid models, passengers will still have more headroom in the second row than they did in the previous Escape. The full-hybrid version uses a self-charging full-hybrid powertrain that enables pure-electric driving capability and combines a 2.5-litre petrol engine.Both the mild and full-hybrid setup is claimed to return an efficiency figure of around 20kmpl.

In addition to the hybrids, there is also a regular EcoBlue model that packs a 190 PS version of the 2.0-litre EcoBlue engine, as well as a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine that offers between 120 PS and 150 PS depending on the state of tune. It sports the industry's only cylinder deactivation system on a three-cylinder engine. It links the 2.5-litre petrol engine to an electric motor to deliver 50.4mpg and 130g/km.

The Mondeo Hybrid mid-size auto and its parallel system are also a possibility for Australia alongside the Escape Hybrid that runs a similar set-up.

Among other announcements by Ford related to commercial automobiles was the launch of its new Tourneo Custom Plug-In Hybrid vehicle. This powertrain is combined of a 2.5-litre petrol engine and a 10.3 kWh battery pack, delivering a claimed 235mpg and Carbon dioxide emissions of 29g/km, as well as over 31 miles of pure electric driving range. As a final outcome, only a pure electric Version is missing.

"We think the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) will do well here". The posh Vignale will come with various chrome highlights, 18-inch wheels as standard (19- and 20-inch alloys also available) and premium velour floor mats.

"Forward-looking, technologically advanced and using a wide range of electrified solutions to suit the different needs of different consumers ... the models introduced today are just the start of our plans to develop a comprehensive line-up of smart vehicles for a smart world", he said. Furthermore, it looks to make 100% uptime possible for commercial vehicle operators with its new initiative.
