It’s already enough to comfortably launch the production later this year.
It’s been a few months since Ford opened the registration site for the all-electric E-Transit model in May 2021 and, according to the manufacturer, more than 20,000 units have been reserved so far.
That’s a pretty high result and it’s getting higher every week, ahead of the market launch in late 2021 (in Europe it will be a little bit later, in Spring 2022).
“Ford’s E-Transit has over 20,000 reservations and growing.”
For reference, the Ford F-150 Lightning noted so far over 120,000 reservations, but it’s a different segment.
In the case of the Ford E-Transit, the prices start at $43,295, and depending on the version, can go up to $52,690.
Initially, there will be only one, the 67 kWh battery version (usable capacity), that should provide enough range for basic needs. We believe that over time Ford will introduce other options/increase range depending on customer’s needs.
