Heavy-duty: ACT Research’s Class 8 Tractor Dashboard unchanged still a downbeat
Ford E-Transit is now shipping across the U.S. The E-Transit already has more than 10,000 orders from businesses of all sizes and Ford is working on ways to increase production. The all-new E-Transit is produced at Kansas City Assembly Plant – Ford’s first U.S. plant to assemble both batteries and all-electric vehicles in-house. To deliver E-Transit vans to customers like Sheeran, Ford invested $100 million in Kansas City Assembly Plant and added approximately 150 full-time jobs. These jobs include vehicle and battery pack assembly for the new E-Transit.
E-Transit is designed for work with available features like Pro Power Onboard – which turns the vehicle into a mobile generator with up to 2.4 kilowatts of power. New Ford Pro Intelligence subscription services such as Ford Pro E-Telematics can be accessed by activating the standard 4G LTE modem on E-Transit. Ford Pro E-Telematics – complimentary for three years on E-Transit – is designed to help maximize run time with scheduled preconditioning when vehicles are connected to the grid, allowing drivers to bring the cabin to a desired temperature when still plugged in, helping preserve battery charge for use on the road.
