Eclectic Ford Family Portrait Includes F-150 Electric, Mach-E and 2022 E-Transit

The Blue Oval company is certainly dipping its electrified toes into every segment it can lay its corporate hands upon – aiming to be the one “leading the charge.” And the electrified future certainly looks interesting for the automaker, judging by the family portrait it composed for the introduction of the all-new 2022 E-Transit fully electric commercial van.

While the second largest U.S. automaker is still preparing for the upcoming arrival of the 2021 F-150 Hybrid – complete with pricing details and excruciating testing during the development phase – it didn’t waste the opportunity to sneak upon the worldwide debut of the E-Transit with the Electric F-150 (scheduled for dealership arrival in mid-2022).

That’s a nice EV family portrait (the hero shot in the gallery), with the Mustang Mach-E covering the needs for all-electric sporty crossover driving, the F-150 promising to carry its EV weight in the best-selling charts, and the all-new E-Transit as the battery-version of the “world’s best-selling cargo van.”

The 2022 E-Transit will arrive at U.S. dealerships for a starting price of less than $45k after it starts production at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri – though we’re not being given specific details about the actual start date of manufacturing.

Interested customers will probably have to wait until late next year – based on the 2022 model year designation – to see the E-Transit being churned out the assembly lines in a choice of three roof heights, three body lengths, along with cargo, cutaway, and even chassis cab versions.

Business operators and independent professionals will be able to take advantage of an estimated maximum payload of 3,800 pounds (1,724 kg), or even up to 4,290 lbs. (1,946 kg) for cutaway versions, while Ford also promises a targeted power of 266 hp and 317 lb.-ft. of torque no matter the chosen configuration.

These specifications have been achieved thanks to the smart packaging involved – up to 487.3 cubic feet of cargo space in the LWB model with the highest roof option, as the 67-kWh battery pack was hidden underneath the floor.

Ford is targeting up to 126 miles of range (203 km), with 120 / 240-volt AC charging, as well as DC fast charging capabilities at 115 kW (45 miles of range in just 15 minutes).
