The new, second-generation Ford Transit Courier is coming to Europe, with combustion-engined vans to arrive before the end of 2023
Ford has not yet revealed the battery size or range for its new small van, however it has said the van, in electric guise, will use a single electric motor that produces 100kW of power. Battery range is estimated to be between 300km and 350km.
The Ford Transit Courier has not yet been confirmed by Ford Australia to be coming down under, however it could be in the brand’s future plans following on from the launch of the E-Transit and E-Transit Custom.
Ford’s decision to go it alone on the Transit Courier and E-Transit Courier stands in contrast to the brand’s van and ute partnership with traditional rival Volkswagen, which has spawned the new Amarok/Ranger, plus the Tourneo Connect.
The new Ford Transit Courier will be able to fit two euro-size pallets inside with a total cargo bay width of 1220mm.
Ford says the total cargo volume is 2.9 cubic metres, slightly larger than the 2.5 cubic metres of space provided in the upcoming Renault Kangoo E-Tech.
Standard equipment includes a ‘digiboard’ screen setup which incorporates a 12.0-inch digital instrument cluster with a 12.0-inch centre touchscreen and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
Optional features include a safety bundle that includes adaptive cruise control, blind spot information, cross traffic alert and reverse brake assistance.
