New Ford Transit Custom : Era of electric and hybrid vans

The updated powertrains are designed to deliver improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, making the new Custom van an eco-friendly choice for businesses looking to minimise their carbon footprint.
The all-electric e-Transit Custom
Debuting for the first time at the 2022 IAA Transportation Show in Hannover, the e-Transit Custom is long-awaited Ford‘s first fully electric medium van. Set to go into production in the second half of 2023, this groundbreaking vehicle aims to offer a range of up to 236 miles, a significant improvement over the current e-Transit’s 196-mile range.
The Transit e-Custom features rear-wheel drive, a motor with 415 Nm of torque, and a choice of 134 hp and 215 hp power outputs. With fast 125 kW charging capabilities, you can charge the battery from 15% to 80% in just 41 minutes.
Plug-in hybrid and diesel options
In addition to the electric version, the new Transit Custom 2023 is also available in plug-in hybrid and diesel models. The plug-in hybrid model features a 2.5-liter petrol engine and an 11.8 kWh battery, while the diesel lineup includes a 2.0-liter engine with power outputs ranging from 110 hp to 170 hp.
The best becomes even better?
If you ever leased a Transit Custom, then you know this van is simply outstanding. But now businesses across the UK can expect something even more remarkable – this all-new model offers technology and efficiency never seen before.

Your new mobile office on wheels
Ford has recognised the need for a versatile workspace in their vans, and the new Transit Custom delivers just that.
The Mobile Office pack offers some truly impressive features. The one we love the most is the tiltable steering wheel, which can be transformed into either a laptop stand or a small table for eating/writing. This pack also includes dimmable LED interior lighting and extra storage between the seats for documents or devices.
More advanced technology and connectivity
The Ford Transit Custom 2023 is packed with cutting-edge technology, making it one of the most connected and advanced vans on the market. The new model comes with Ford’s latest SYNC 4 infotainment system, which includes a large touchscreen display, voice control, and seamless smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
In addition, the new Ford Transit Custom van offers a range of advanced driver assistance systems, such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping System, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. These features not only enhance driver’s safety but also contribute to a more comfortable and stress-free driving experience.
Improved comfort and practicality
The new Custom van boasts a redesigned cabin, offering increased comfort and practicality for drivers and passengers. The all-new platform allows for a completely flat floor in the cabin, making it easier to move around and providing more knee room for passengers. While the cabin’s layout has been optimised for easy access to controls and storage compartments, the ergonomically designed seats also provide improved support.
Custom’s L-shaped bulkhead with second-row seating and full-length loading bay is our favorite feature, without a doubt. This is an answer to those who needed a Ford Transit Custom crew cab van but also enough cargo length to carry longer loads. Now, you can have both! Plus, the new Transit Custom now offers a low step-in height and a lower roofline of 2 metres to help it fit comfortably in underground parking facilities.
