Ford has provided us with a better look of its new Transit Custom at the IAA Transportation Show 2022 in Germany, showcasing the next evolution in its line of workhorses.
The brand also gave us a glimpse at a new addition to its electric lineup in the form of the E-Transit Custom. Powered by what Ford says is its next-generation battery technology, the electric Transit targets a range of 380km, with a recharging ability of 124kW.
Ford’s latest generation of EcoBlue diesel engines are on offer in the new Transit Custom, combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. All up, the new power plant offers a maximum towing capacity of 2500kg.
Key features of the new Transit Custom include a new vehicle architecture which lowers floor height for more load carry capability. Independent suspension is new for the rear end.
The model will be available in four sizes including two different lengths and roof heights, with the Transit Custom also being offered as both a panel van and double-cab-in-van.
A mobile office option with a tilting steering wheel can also be specified, while a 13-inch touchscreen as standard completes the interior.
Customer deliveries of Transit Custom with EcoBlue powertrains are set to begin in late-2023 with additional variants available in 2024.
The new E-Transit Custom will arrive in New Zealand in 2024.
