Utilimaster, a brand of The Shyft Group's Fleet Vehicles & Services business unit, has announced it has worked with Ford Pro to produce two pilot vehicles built on the all-electric Ford E-Transit chassis for customer testing.
As the chosen body provider for the Ford Pro E-Transit pilot program, Utilimaster has engineered its Velocity body to fit the E-Transit cutaway. One of the completed all-electric vehicles is comparable to Utilimaster's Velocity F-Series for gas-powered Transit chassis fleet customers, but designed specifically for the E-Transit's all-electric architecture. The other unit features a renewed Utilimaster route-delivery body often seen in the snack food industry.
The pilot program vehicles are road ready and will be in use through 2023.
