The new Ford E-Tourneo Custom is an eight-seat EV with 230 miles of range
Ford launches the new Tourneo Custom with diesel, PHEV and all-electric versions
Ford launched the new E-Transit Custom in May this year, so we doubt you’ll be too surprised to see this: the all new E-Tourneo Custom.
Yep, it’s the people-carrier version of the one-tonne Transit, and this time it’s electric…
Well, it doesn’t have to be. Ford Pro is launching the new Tourneo Custom in diesel, plug-in hybrid and EV forms. We’ll get the combustion-engined ones out the way first – in diesel form you can have 134bhp, 148bhp or 168bhp. You can choose between a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed auto, and there’s an all-wheel drive option on the lowest and highest powered iterations. All get independent rear suspension, can tow up to 2,500kg, and inside you can have a maximum of nine seats.
The PHEV pairs a 2.5-litre petrol engine with an 11.8kWh battery and an electric motor for 31 miles of EV range.
It’s the E-Tourneo Custom that’s really interesting though. You can only have eight seats if you go EV, but you get a 74kWh battery and a 211bhp motor. Range is up to 230 miles and there’s 125kW DC fast charging. Oh, and it’ll still tow up to 2,000kg.
Ford describes the Tourneo Custom as a ‘multi-activity vehicle’ (hence the kayak in the images above) and so the seats are mounted on sliding rails or can be removed completely. The EV also gets a 2.3kW output socket, while all Customs get a giant 13-inch touchscreen up front. Specs include Active, Sport or the range-topping Titanium X.
Deliveries are set to begin in mid-2023. What do we think, folks?
