Ford unveiled its latest electric vehicle, the Ford E-Tourneo Courier, at the Copenhagen Motor Show. The compact van is designed to offer a practical and efficient solution for urban mobility, with a range of up to 186 miles on a single charge and a spacious interior that can accommodate up to four passengers and 410 liters of cargo.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier electric van is based on the popular Tourneo Courier model, which has been sold in Europe since 2014. The electric version features a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a 100 kW electric motor that delivers 136 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque. The van can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 11.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 93 mph.
The battery can be recharged using a standard AC outlet or a DC fast charger, which can replenish 80% of the capacity in just 45 minutes. The van also has a regenerative braking system that recovers energy during deceleration and feeds it back to the battery.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier offers a versatile, comfortable interior with sliding rear doors, foldable rear seats, and multiple storage compartments. The van also comes with a range of advanced technologies, such as a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a wireless charging pad, a digital instrument cluster, and a rearview camera.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier electric van also features several driver assistance systems, such as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, cross traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking. The Ford E-Tourneo Courier also has a smart key that allows the driver to unlock and start the vehicle without taking the key out of their pocket.
The Ford E-Tourneo Courier is expected to go on sale in Europe in early 2024, with a starting price of around $35,000 (€30,000). The van will compete with other electric vans in the market, such as the Renault Kangoo Z.E. and the Volkswagen e-Caddy.
