Penske orders 750 Ford E-Transit electric cargo vans for its rental, leasing fleet

Penske Truck Leasing announced it has ordered 750 all-electric Ford E-Transit cargo vans. The company is taking delivery of its first several vehicles in the next several weeks. The move follows successfully piloting the vehicles late last year. Penske’s first Ford E-Transit vehicles will be made available in Southern California with other locations around the U.S. phased in later in the year.

Once these Ford E-Transit electric zero tailpipe emission vehicles go into service, they will be made available for both rental and longer-term full-service leasing. Penske’s long-term plans include adding more of these units to its wider network of rental and leasing locations across North America.

The Ford E-Transit is the first all-electric cargo van from a full-line automaker in North America as the electric version of the Ford Transit. It has an estimated range of 126 miles.
