Ford has revealed an all-electric version of its cargo van as part of its drive to help consumers go greener.

The E-Transit features a 67kWh battery that can deliver an estimated driving range of 126 miles in the low-roof cargo van variant.

The medium roof height and long version of the van is expected to deliver 116 miles on a charge and the extended version will have 108 miles of range.

The E-Transit is the second major electric vehicle to be released as part of Ford’s $11.5 billion (£8.7bn) investment into electrification.

The car manufacturer previously set a target to achieve carbon neutrality globally by 2050.

Jim Farley, Ford President and CEO said: “Ford is North America and Europe’s commercial truck and van leader so the transition of fleet vehicles to zero emissions, especially for the fast-growing last-mile delivery segment, is critical to achieve our carbon neutrality goal by 2050.

“Ford is ready to lead the charge, starting with the all-electric Transit and all-electric F-150 on the way. This is good for the planet and a huge advantage for customers to help lower their operating costs and provide connected fleet management technologies that will help their businesses.”
