2022 Ford E-Transit Target Pricing Announced

The electric version of the Ford Transit is just a few months away from first deliveries, following the commercial debut of the Mustang Mach-E and ahead of the arrival of the battery-electric F-150 in 2022.

Due to arrive at dealerships later this year, the E-Transit lineup will first see an appearance on job sites this summer as part of a manufacturer pilot program with key customers in different vocations. The order banks for the E-Transit will open in July, and Ford has shared the preliminary MSRPs for the different versions of the battery-electric commercial van.

The targeted MSRP for the cutaway version of the E-Transit will kick things off at $43,295 before destination, which hasn’t been published yet but is expected to be identical to the gas-engined Transit’s, at $1,695. The E-Transit will also get the benefit of the $7,500 tax credit, which will bring down its final price to around $37,490.

The second lowest-priced version of the E-Transit will be the chassis cab, of course, with a target MSRP of $43,825. Ford hasn’t published the manufacturer-estimated EPA figures for these two most affordable versions yet; all the other cargo van versions—with a choice of three roof heights and three wheelbases—have received estimated EPA numbers, ranging from 108 miles in the high roof, extended-wheelbase version (expected to start at $52,690) to 126 miles in the low roof, regular-wheelbase (about $47,185). A total of eight varieties, including the chassis cab and cutaway versions, will be offered.

Meanwhile, medium-roof versions of the cargo van in regular and long wheelbases are expected to offer 116 miles of range. All versions of the E-Transit will be powered by a 67-kWh (usable) battery, so the difference in estimated ranges of 108, 116, and 126 miles is due to weight and aerodynamics.

The low- and medium-roof versions of the cargo van will be offered in regular or extended wheelbases, while the high-roof versions will be offered in long or extended wheelbases.

“We’ve had so much interest early on, we wanted to open this registration site to serve customers with a build mix for their needs across all van body styles,” said Ted Cannis, general manager of North American commercial business. “Some customers want high-roof vans to maximize internal cargo space, while others need to install bodies on cutaways and chassis cabs. Customers will have an all-electric solution—from box truck delivery to parking structure-friendly utility service vans and everything in between.”

Ford has launched a site where prospective customers can register their interest in the E-Transit, but the order banks themselves will officially open in about a couple of months.
