    Ford Transit History: A Legacy of Hard-Working Versatility

    Transit has provided customers with the power of choice across cargo, cutaway, chassis cab and passenger variants.

    Transit Works Hard Across America

     

    280,000+ companies

    76 industries

    44,000+ service companies

    37,000+ construction companies

    21,000+ wholesale/retail companies

    5,000 manufacturing companies

    4,800 state & local governments

    2,300 utility services companies

    “We’ve assembled more than 1.2 million Transit vans in the last 10 years, and 99% of Transit vans are still on the road, working hard for customers today,” said Tim Baughman, Ford Pro general manager. “It’s America’s bestselling commercial van because it’s Built Ford Tough, and businesses on every street corner rely on Transit to keep the country moving—from plumbing to carpentry and yes, delivery, too.”

    After just six months in production, Transit became America’s bestselling commercial van1 in late 2014 and outsold every other van in America, including minivans, before the end of 2016. And Ford has continued to invest in new variants and innovations across the lineup, in 2020 adding optional all-wheel drive and unveiling the E-Transit electric van, and introducing Transit Trail, its van life derivative, to the lineup in 2022.

    Since beginning U.S. production in April 2014, more than 1.2 million Transit vans have been assembled at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri.2 And 99% of all Transit vans sold in the past 10 years are still on the road.3

    Enhancing Range to Reach Even More Industries

    E-Transit has quickly become the electric van of choice in America,1 Canada4 and Europe,5 thanks to its versatility. E-Transit, America’s bestselling electric van,6 has saved customers more than 3 million gallons of gas and over 25 million kg of CO2 output since joining the Transit family in 2022.7 According to the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, that’s the same as planting 413,377 tree seedlings and letting them grow for 10 years.

    New for the 2024 model year, Ford Pro enhances range capability on E-Transit, offering an overall estimated range of 159 miles8 on low-roof cargo van models with 89 kWh of usable energy,9 which supports work covering longer distances and provides more capability to unlock electric solutions for new use cases, like refrigerated delivery. The additional range over the previous model is an increase of 26% on low-roof8 and a 32% increase on high-roof models.8

    Leveraging Ford Telematics data, Ford analyzed more than 2.5 million trips, totaling 30 million miles, to understand that the average daily range for commercial vans in the U.S. is 74 miles. And E-Transit with enhanced range maintains the same 266 hp and 317 lb.-ft. of torque as the prior model.10

    Registration data shows that customers agree E-Transit owns work, serving more industries and more vocations than any other electric van.11

    E-Transit Owns Work

     

    5,500+ companies

    65 industries

    600+ service companies

    460+ construction companies

    300+ wholesale/retail companies

    222 state & local governments

    90 manufacturing companies

    90 utility services companies

    Faster charging: New dual onboard chargers enable the E-Transit battery to charge faster than ever. The 2024 E-Transit can charge at a peak power of 176 kilowatts (kW).12 Fifteen minutes on a DC fast charger (180-plus kW) is estimated to add 67 miles of range on a 2024 E-Transit cargo van low-roof configuration12—a 49% increase over the prior battery. And the 2024 E-Transit will charge from zero to 100% in just six hours and 11 minutes when using the now-available Ford Pro Series 2 80A charging station12—22% faster than the prior battery—providing a full charge overnight.

    Pro Power Onboard: Available across the E-Transit van lineup, Pro Power Onboard13 provides 2.4 kW of power and is operable while the vehicle is in motion and while charging, enabling users to plug in a laptop, tools or other power equipment on the go or the jobsite.

    E-Transit is available in more configurations than any other all-electric commercial van from a full-line automaker, offering two lengths, three roof heights, three body styles and up to 487 cubic feet of cargo volume.

    Order banks for the 2024 E-Transit with enhanced range will open this spring, with deliveries expected to start later this year. 2024 E-Transit with enhanced range MSRP begins at $51,095.14 E-Transit may also qualify for the Commercial Clean Vehicle Tax Credit of up to $7,500 per vehicle.15
