What charging device comes standard with E-Transit? How quickly can it charge E-Transit? The 120V/240V Ford Mobile Charger, standard with the vehicle, is estimated to add an average range of 10 miles per charging hour on cargo van low roof models when plugged into a 240V outlet. * The 120V outlet is estimated to add an average range of 1.7 miles per charging hour on cargo van low roof models.
*Range and charge time based on manufacturer computer engineering simulations and U.S. EPA MCT drive cycle methodology (www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/pdfs/EPA test procedure for EVs-PHEVs-11-14-2017.pdf). The charging rate decreases as the battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge. Actual vehicle range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.
Will the all-electric Transit also be able to charge in public at non-Ford networked chargers? Access to North America's largest public charging network* eliminates the need to register with multiple charging networks or download multiple apps. E-Transit drivers can use the non-Ford networked chargers as well and will need to pay for charging through direct coordination with those providers.
*Based on original equipment manufacturers (OEM)/automotive manufacturers that sell all-electric vehicles and have publicly announced charging networks. Department of Energy data used. FordPass,™ compatible with select smartphone platforms, is available via a download. Message and data rates may apply.
Will Ford offer its Ford Connected Charge Station for the E-Transit for fleet purchase? Yes. For fleet operations requiring a faster charge at home for their employees, Ford will offer a 240V – 48A Ford Connected Charge Station. The available Ford Connected Charge Station is Wi-Fi-enabled and can fully power your vehicle overnight. Vehicle charge events can be tracked and summarized for employee reimbursement.
Why should employees charge at home? Charging overnight reduces vehicle and driver downtime and ensures the battery is fully charged to start the workday. Ford's fleet-wide energy monitoring and vehicle management tools can provide fleet managers with reporting to support reimbursement for employees who charge at home.
Can the batteries be recycled? The batteries are recyclable. Ford will suggest recycling options for out-of-warranty batteries.
What happens if I run out of charge on the road? Ford Roadside Assistance* has you covered in the U.S. for 8 years/100,000 miles (whichever comes first). You can choose where you would like to have your vehicle towed and recharged within 35 miles of your vehicle location: your home, a public charge station or a Ford EV-certified dealership. If beyond 35 miles, Ford will take you to the nearest available option.
*Roadside Assistance is included for certain owners and available to everyone for a per-service fee. Ford reserves the right to change program details without obligations.
