After one year of success with the E-Transit, Ford Pro is boosting production at the Kansas City Assembly Plant starting later in March 2023. Work Truck dug into some of the top milestones of this all-electric van.
The Ford E-Transit was purpose-built for Ford Pro commercial customers starting in 2022. Featuring eight different configurations, including three roof heights and three body lengths, plus cutaway and chassis cab versions to fulfill multiple applications, the E-Transit is meant for fleets.
Ford Pro E-Transit Milestones
Since February of 2022, Ford E-Transit customers have driven more than 12 million miles in the U.S. and Canada.
In addition, based on telematics data from the past year,
Ford Pro has uncovered some eye-opening sustainability data that will only increase as more E-Transit vans are adopted:
- To date, E-Transit has saved more than 745,000 gallons of gas and more than 4.3 million kg of CO2 as compared to its gas-powered Transit equivalent.
- Furthermore, driving an E-Transit low-roof van could have a 57% reduced CO2 output vs. the internal combustion equivalent over its lifetime.
Ford noted that the E-Transit isn't just good for the environment, but has proven itself as good for business "in every corner of the economy," according to a statement.
In the U.S. alone, 6,500 E-Transit vans were sold through December 2022 and deliveries have occurred in all 50 states.Today, the E-Transit represents roughly 61% of the electric van market.
In addition, of the 30 vocations recognized by S&P Global Mobility, E-Transit is the current sales leader in 28 – including construction, retail, and government customers.
“Businesses looking to adopt battery electric technology is happening at a global scale, and E-Transit – along with the Ford Pro™ one-stop shop of software, services and charging solutions – is at the forefront of that revolution,” said Ted Cannis, Ford Pro CEO. “In its first year on the road, E-Transit has made an immediate impact, and we are just getting started.”
