New Zealand’s number one light commercial brand, Ford New Zealand, is introducing plug-in hybrid technology for zero-emission driving capability to the light commercial van segment, with the innovative new MY2020.5 Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid and the MY2020.5 Tourneo Titanium Plug-In Hybrid eight-seat people-mover arriving mid-2020.

Combining zero-emission driving capability and no range anxiety, the first-in-class Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid van can be charged with mains electricity for a pure electric NEDC driving range of up to 56 km – contributing to reduced local emissions.

Featuring a technologically advanced hybrid architecture, the Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid’s front wheels are driven exclusively by a 92.9 kW electric motor powered by a 13.6 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Ford’s multi-award-winning 1.0‑litre EcoBoost petrol engine acts as a range extender for total driving range exceeding 500 kilometres, 2.7 l/100 km fuel efficiency and 60 g/km CO2 emissions NEDC.*

A generous net payload of 1,130 kg and unchanged load volume of 6.0 m3 are facilitated by careful packaging of the compact battery pack beneath the floor. Giving confidence to businesses, the battery pack is covered by a standard eight-year/160,000 km warranty.**

Ford is also introducing a new Tourneo Titanium Plug-In Hybrid eight-seat people-mover, utilising the same advanced powertrain technology. Offering superior levels of refinement in a spacious rear compartment with unique-in-segment conference seating, the Tourneo Custom Plug-In Hybrid makes an ideal executive shuttle for businesses.

“Our customers want electrified vehicles, but many still have concerns about infrastructure and range. The new Transit Custom and Tourneo Plug-In Hybrids deliver the same well-renowned productivity capabilities combined with the ability to drive on zero-emission electric power and anxiety free ability to make longer journeys,” said Simon Rutherford, Managing Director, Ford New Zealand.

Full specifications and pricing will be available closer to arrival.
