Ford’s E-Transit van has officially landed in Australia, with the battery-electric workhorse arriving in two variants, the cheapest of which is priced from $104,990.

The E-Transit range has landed with a pair of mid- and high-roof variants of the 420L long wheelbase platform, both of which come powered by an electric motor pushing out 198kW/430Nm to the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission.

Underneath, there’s a 68kWh battery pack offering a claimed WLTP driving range up to 307km for the mid-roof van, and 295km in the high-roof E-Transit; both offer 115kW DC fast-charging and a feature regenerative braking system.

Ford says that with an 11.3kW AC charger, the pack takes eight hours to top up, while a DC fast-charger brings the pack from 15 to 80 per cent in around 34 minutes.

Underneath, the E-Transit receives independent rear suspension with a heavy-duty semi-trailing arm for better traction while loaded up and empty.

The E-Transit in mid-roof spec can swallow up to 11 cubic meters of cargo, while the high-roof variant’s cargo capacity stands at 12.4 cubic meters. GVM figures stand at 4250kg, while the 1611kg payload figures of the mid-roof van exceed that of the high roof’s 1566kg payload cap.

Inside, the E-Transit receives Ford’s 12.0-inch SYNC 4 infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, sat-nav, battery pre-conditioning and a subscription to the FordPass connected service.

Standard safety equipment includes autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, a rear-view camera with parking sensors and lane keep assistance with departure warnings.

Prices for the mid-roof E-Transit 420L long-wheelbase start from $104,990, while the high-roof variant comes at a $1500 premium (before on-road costs). The E-Transit is packaged with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty and an eight-year/160,000km warranty for the battery pack.
