Ford Pro reveals electric E-Tourneo Custom multi-activity vehicle
Ford Pro has revealed the electric E-Tourneo Custom – a multi-activity vehicle with a range of up to 230 miles.
The E-Tourneo Custom targets both personal-use and business customers, with space for up to eight occupants.
Customers can also choose an all-new Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) version for applications where additional flexibility is required. In addition, the new model can be specified with the latest generation of Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, available with a new high-efficiency eight-speed automatic gearbox, and – for the first time – an intelligent all-wheel drive system.
New Tourneo Custom vehicles are fully integrated with the Ford Pro platform of software and connected services including end-to-end charging solutions, management tools from Ford Pro Telematics, 4 the FordPass Pro app, 5 and the FORDLiive connected uptime system.
Tourneo Custom models with EcoBlue diesel engines are scheduled to reach customers from mid-2023, with additional variants available from later in the year.
Utilising the same high-density battery cell technology as the Ford F-150 Lightning pickup in a 74kWh useable battery, with a 160kW electric motor, E-Tourneo Custom will deliver exceptional performance and refinement. The multi-activity vehicle’s all-electric powertrain also offers one-pedal drive capability for even greater energy efficiency, and a more relaxed and comfortable driving experience.
An onboard 11kW AC three-phase charger is capable of fully recharging the battery in less than eight hours, and a 15-80 per cent recharge takes around 41 minutes using a 125kW DC fast charger. E‑Tourneo Custom’s charge profile front-loads the energy to enable quick top-ups; in lab testing, using a 125kW DC fast charger added almost 23 miles of range in just five minutes.
E-Tourneo Custom offers a maximum towing capacity of 2,000kg along with a payload allowance, helping adventurous owners carry friends, family and sports equipment with ease, and business operators transport customers and their luggage efficiently.
Pro Power Onboard technology also enables customers to fully utilise the potential of Tourneo Custom’s electrified variants, delivering up to 2.3kW through sockets in the front cabin – ideal for powering digital devices, tools or sports and camping equipment when off-grid.
