All-New Ford Transit Connect Compact Van PHEV (2024) | FIRST LOOK. Ford Pro today revealed the all-new Transit Connect compact van, completing the brand’s new-generation line-up of high-productivity electrified Transit commercial vehicles in Europe.
A completely new powertrain line-up for Transit Connect is headlined by the model’s first-ever PHEV driveline. The system couples a 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine to a high-voltage battery and electric motor to deliver a combined 150 PS and 350 Nm of torque through a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Maximum payload is 770 kg, and maximum trailer weight is 1,400 kg.
Transit Connect PHEV has a targeted electric range of up to 110 km and, in EV mode, can still deliver up to 330 Nm of torque for urban load-hauling.
Transit Connect is designed to serve a broad range of compact van customer requirements, so Ford Pro offers the model with short- or long-wheelbase options in two‑seat Van or five‑seat Kombi bodystyles.
The panel van’s new load area design delivers an increased load volume of 3.1 m3 or 3.7 m3 depending on wheelbase choice. Maximum payload is 820 kg, 8 and the competitive 1,500 kg towing capacity enables customers to tow a wide range of equipment to support their business.
Transit Connect Kombi introduces a revolutionary new flexible seating concept, that enables dual-use customers to quickly and easily switch their vehicle from a comfortable five-seater to a capable work van. The rear seat easily folds forward and upward in seconds to increase the load volume to 2.5 m3 (L1) or 3.1 m3 (L2), with L2 models having space for two Euro pallets. 12 In their folded position, the rear seats form a protective full-height bulkhead, and ensure that front seat occupants benefit from a refined driving experience.
Efficient new powertrain range
As an alternative to the new PHEV powertrain, customers can also choose a 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbodiesel engine with two power outputs. The new all-wheel drive system is offered with the 122 PS engine and a six-speed manual gearbox; customers can also specify the same engine with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for fast and smooth shifting with no loss of torque. The 102 PS variant is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox and is front-wheel drive only. Ford Pro expects highly competitive fuel efficiency as low as 4.8 l/100 km to help customers reduce fuel costs. 1,2
The availability of intelligent all-wheel drive on the all-new Transit Connect will boost appeal to customers in the Nordic and Alpine regions in particular, providing enhanced traction and confidence in challenging weather conditions.
