The likes of Brightdrop and Rivian have become much popular in the business. So it came up with its E-Transit, and these vans are now arriving to customers, according to Ford's announcement.
Ford's Kansas City assembly facility has a little production, but Blue Oval is already making some money to expand the product. The Kansas City plant is unique for Ford in that it makes both vehicles and their battery packs in-house.
According to Ford's announcement, it's already got orders for upwards of 10,000 E-Transits from around 300 commercial customers, which is pretty good given the cargo van's limited 126 miles of range and not-insubstantial $48,880 base price (including a $1,695 destination fee). That price doesn't account for fleet discounts or tax incentives that buyers might be eligible for, but actual purchase prices may be lower
The E-Transit can be connected to Ford's Pro Power onboard generator as well as Ford Pro Charging, which gives commercial customers a one-stop shop experience.
