Description

Based on the popular Ford Transit Connect van platform from Europe, the Transit Connect EV has a liquid-cooled 28 kWh Li-Ion battery pack in the floorboard, taking up space where the gas tank would be. The batteries don't take up any extra space, giving the van 135 cubic feet of cargo space, just as in the gasoline-powered model. The all electric van can accelerate at the same rate as it's gasoline-powered counterpart and can reach a top speed of 75 mph. Ford is also developing a passenger version of the Transit Connect EV, the Tourneo Connect EV. Ford has parnterned with Azure Dynamics to build the Transit Connect EV. Ford began shipping the Transit Connect EV to customers in North America and Britain in December 2010.

The Transit Connect EV is no longer for sale.

Jesus Christ, your comment is

Jesus Christ, your comment is infuriating. First, the gasoline models aren't even $19k. Second, 80 miles for a plug in vehicle is on par with just about every other plug in vehicle (Focus, Leaf, Volt, etc) Third, like every other Ford plug in available, you can plug it into 120V. Educate yourself before you speak. Granted $60k is a lot, but the fact that there is an electric work truck available is amazing in and of itself. People like you always want more more more and have ridiculous demands when you cannot be satisfied with an amazing product sitting right in front of you. So please, tell me, where can YOU find an electric vehicle that meets all your demands? Especially an electric vehicle for $19k? Please. Get real.

Really?

The Renault Kangoo Z.E. is similar in many respects to this Ford Transit, but for less than half the price, selling for about $27K, USD. The catch is that Renault doesn't market in the US. This price for the Transit is really a bit steep by most standards.

2012 Azure Dynamics Transit Connect Electric Van

Ford dealer on Long Island, NY quoted $60,000 on 3/6/12. I agree no one will pay over 260% more for a delivery van, but they priced it this high, not us. Just another way to blockade the road away from fossil fuels.

Why would a EV van be $60,000

Why would a EV van be $60,000 each? Tesla Modle X is only 30-40,000. STOP posting Anti-electic lies on here. If ford is selling for $60,000 then that is a scam. don't buy it. just get the tesla modle x for $40,000 and strip it. Then use as a van.
