2022 Ford E-Transit for Sale in Hyannis, MA
As alternative-fuel vehicles grow in popularity, one thing is becoming clear: electric powertrains aren’t just for personal vehicles. The debuting 2022 Ford E-Transit takes the best-selling commercial van (the Ford Transit) and makes it not only more eco-friendly but less expensive to operate and maintain, since oil changes and gas fill-ups are eliminated. But this vehicle model is making history in another way, as both the E-Transit and its batteries are assembled at Ford’s Kansas City plant – a first for the automaker.
The E-Transit certainly doesn’t lose capability without a combustion engine: it puts out 266 horsepower and has a hauling capacity of up to 3,880 pounds. Add those attributes to potentially 487 cubic feet of cargo space, and this van becomes the solution for a wide range of businesses looking to get the job done with a lower carbon footprint. It even has ProPower Onboard, an innovative feature that can power equipment when there’s no outlet around. The 2022 Ford E-Transit comes in Cargo Van and Passenger Van versions, as well as Chassis Cab and Cutaway configurations. Buyers can also do a wide range of custom upfitting after purchase.
E-Transit Specifications, Range, and Charging
The E-Transit comes in three lengths (regular, long, and long-EL) and three roof heights (low, medium, and high). The high-roof E-Transit is available only in long and long-EL lengths. Payload capacity ranges from 3,330 to 3,880 pounds. Its powertrain consists of a 68-kWh lithium-ion battery, a rear-wheel-drive motor, and a single-speed transmission. This setup produces 266 horsepower and 317 lb.-ft. of torque. The EPA has estimated the drive range to be 126 miles for the low-roof E-Transit; the versions with higher roofs may have lower range because of the decreased aerodynamics of the higher profile. According to Ford, the average daily drive for a commercial van in the U.S. is 74 miles, leaving ample wiggle room for all versions.
Using a DC fast charger (Level 3) at 115 kW, the E-Transit can be charged from 15 percent to 80 percent in 34 minutes. With a Level 2 charger, including the available Ford Connected Charge Station, the E-Transit’s battery can go from empty to full in 8 hours.
Standard Features and Options
All E-Transits come with air conditioning and vinyl-covered seating for the driver and a single front-row passenger. Among the other cabin features are vinyl floor covering, a cloth headliner, and a locking glove box. Buyers can upgrade to cloth upholstery and add parking sensors, an automatic parking system, and cargo area protection. As mentioned in the intro, the optional ProPower Onboard system eliminates the need for a generator by providing 2.4kW of power to operate and charge electric tools and other devices at a job site or anywhere there isn’t a standard AC outlet.
The E-Transit’s exterior features include a 50/50 hinged rear door with a 180-degree opening, a sliding passenger-side door, power-adjustable exterior “short-arm” mirrors, halogen headlights with auto on/off, and automatic high beams. Beyond the front door windows and windshield, glass is available in numerous places, including the rear cargo doors, the side cargo door, and all around the vehicle. Other body options include rear doors with a 253-degree opening and a 60/40-hinged passenger-side door (for the low-roof version only).
Ford has included some standard safety technologies in the E-Transit. Every version gets forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, road edge detection, a lane-keeping system, and driver drowsiness alert. The following safety technologies are optional: reverse brake assist, blind-spot assist with a lane change aid, and an automatic speed limiting device.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The E-Transit’s SYNC 4 infotainment system has been designed with workday productivity in mind. It starts with a generously sized 12-inch touchscreen and access to FordPro Telematics Essentials, a system that allows for remote diagnostics and vehicle locking/unlocking. The infotainment system’s other standard features are a Wi-Fi hotspot and voice activation. It can be upgraded with the available six-speaker audio system, navigation, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
