New Ford Transit Custom launches across Europe

The all-new Transit Custom commercial vehicle from Ford Pro is now launching across Europe.

The next generation of Europe’s best-selling one-tonne van is fully integrated with Ford Pro’s digital ecosystem of software and services to help businesses reduce cost of ownership, work more effectively, and simplify management of their commercial vehicles.

Ford Pro says its engineers developed an all-new platform designed to optimise load carrying and access, improve driver comfort and convenience, and deliver outstanding performance and handling.

The advanced design supports multiple high-efficiency powertrains including plug-in hybrid and new-to-Transit Custom all-wheel drive options, while delivering impressive cargo space.

Inspired by customer insights, Ford Pro says the all-new Transit Custom offers a range of segment-first features and digital experiences to help maximise productivity during the working day, including an innovative tilting steering wheel, time-saving Delivery Assist, digitised conversions with Upfit Integration System, new Exit Warning safety technology, and the versatile MultiCab bodystyle.

The most comprehensive ever Transit Custom range will be completed by the electric E-Transit Custom, which Ford Pro claims will dramatically simplify the transition to electric vehicles for small businesses.

Transit Custom models with EcoBlue diesel engines are already in production, with deliveries commencing in Q4 2023.

Customers can also now order a full range of variants including plug-in hybrid models for delivery from spring 2024, with the electric E‑Transit Custom scheduled to follow later in summer 2024.
