Ford Australia has confirmed the all-electric E-Transit Custom is coming to Australia –
though not until 2024.

“The E-Transit Custom is exactly the kind of versatile, practical van business customers
are looking for, with the benefit of zero-emissions efficiency,” said Andrew Birkic, President
and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand. “We are focused on deeply understanding the
needs of commercial vehicle customers and bringing them the best of our global line-up.”

The Ford E-Transit Custom is designed to set a new benchmark in the one-tonne van
segment and help businesses to effortlessly make the change to electrified vehicles.

The E-Transit Custom is built with electrification and next-gen connectivity at its heart. It
has intelligent software and connectivity tools. It is designed to maximise vehicle uptime.

Ford Australia says, “It will have a compelling range”, though what that range is we haven’t
been told. Perhaps that’s because the company is still working on the design and may
further increase the range due to new technology still under development.

Stay tuned for additional information as it comes to hand.
