Ford says that the new 2022 Ford E-Transit all-electric commercial van starts production at the company’s Kansas City Assembly Plant (KCAP). As the new EV vans start to roll off the production line, they are being delivered to the first customers. Ford says that approximately 300 companies (big and small) have ordered upward of 10,000 E-Transit vans. Customers include small businesses, city fleets – such as the one for the city of Orlando, FL, and large commercial fleets – such as Walmart.

Ford has already invested around $100 Million into the KCAP facility in order to produce the E-Transit. The company says it created 150 additional jobs.

The 2022 Ford E-Transit will come in several configurations. This includes high-roof, mid-roof, and lower-roof options. The van is equipped with a 266 horsepower electric motor, a battery pack with a maximum driving range of 126 miles for a low-roof cargo van model, and a 115 kW DC fast-charge capability. Ford says the van will be able to gain about 45 miles of range in 15 minutes on a DC fast-charger.

The E-Transit maximum payload will be between 3,800 – 4,290 lbs, depending on the configuration. If you need to charge tools or power accessories at a job site, the E-Transit will offer up to 2.4 kW of export power.

The 2022 Ford E-Transit pricing starts at $43,295 for a cutaway chassis and at $47,185 for a cargo van version. This is approximately $12,000 more than a comparable gas-powered Transit model. Ford says the E-Transit will offer about a 40% improvement in maintenance costs.

We hope to drive and test the new E-Transit soon. In the meantime, here is a look at a motorhome that is built on a Ford Transit platform.
