Ford Transit Custom – plug-in hybrid electric van, 2019

Sep 18, 2018 – Ford Motor has unveiled production version of new Transit Custom plug-in hybrid electric vehicle
(PHEV) for the first time, at the IAA Commercial Vehicle show in Hannover, Germany.

The Transit Custom plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) features an advanced hybrid powertrain system that targets a zeroemission driving range of 50 kilometres, and uses the multi-award-winning Ford 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine as a range extender for total range exceeding 500 kilometres.

Ford is the first volume manufacturer to offer PHEV technology in this segment of the van market. The technology enables the vehicle to be charged with mains electricity for zeroemission journeys, contributing to reduced local emissions and allowing the vehicle to enter lowemissions zones.

The PHEV model was first introduced at the IAA Commercial Vehicle show in Germany’s Hannover in September 2018, and will enter volume production in the second half of 2019.
