Ford Pro have revealed the all-new E-Tourneo Custom which will spearhead the next-generation Tourneo and feature an advanced all-electric powertrain.
E-Tourneo Custom raises the bar in the multi-activity vehicle segment, combining a new platform engineered to deliver maximum versatility and comfort with a high-efficiency battery-electric drivetrain that can deliver a targeted driving range of up to 230 miles (370 km).
One of four new all-electric Ford Pro models being launched in Europe by 2024, E-Tourneo Custom targets both personal-use and business customers, offering spacious accommodation for up to eight occupants.
The new model introduces a full suite of premium features including ultra-flexible track-mounted rear seating, hands-free power side doors, B&O audio system, 2 digital key cards, panoramic glass roof – and an innovative tilting steering wheel.
Comfort levels are further enhanced by the superior refinement and vehicle dynamics delivered by the next-generation vehicle design.
Quiet electric propulsion and a new level of ride comfort and stability are offered by the optimised chassis architecture with independent rear suspension.
Hans Schep, General Manager at Ford Pro Europe, said: “Whether it’s an active family trip at the weekend or shuttling execs to the airport in style, comfort and refinement, E-Tourneo Custom’s all-electric powertrain, advanced connectivity, cutting-edge design and new luxury features make it a compelling choice.
“The Tourneo brand has always stood for space and versatility – now we’re extending the appeal to a new generation of discerning EV buyers seeking performance and comfort.”
As part of the most comprehensive Tourneo Custom range ever, customers can also choose an all-new Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) version for applications where additional flexibility is required. In addition, the new model can be specified with the latest generation of Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, available with a new high-efficiency eight-speed automatic gearbox, and – for the first time – an intelligent all-wheel drive system.
All next-generation Tourneo Custom vehicles are fully integrated with the Ford Pro platform of software and connected services including end-to-end charging solutions, management tools from Ford Pro Telematics, the FordPass Pro app, and the FORDLiive connected uptime system.
Tourneo Custom models with EcoBlue diesel engines are scheduled to reach customers from mid-2023, with additional variants available from later in the year.
Let’s talk electric
Utilising the same high-density battery cell technology as the Ford F-150 Lightning pickup in a 74 kWh useable battery, with a 160 kW electric motor, E-Tourneo Custom will deliver performance and refinement. The multi-activity vehicle’s all-electric powertrain also offers one-pedal drive capability for even greater energy efficiency, and a more relaxed and comfortable driving experience.
An onboard 11 kW AC three-phase charger is capable of fully recharging the battery in less than eight hours, and a 15-80 per cent recharge takes around 41 minutes using a 125 kW DC fast charger. E‑Tourneo Custom’s charge profile front-loads the energy to enable quick top-ups; in lab testing, using a 125 kW DC fast charger added almost 38 km of range in just five minutes.
E-Tourneo Custom offers a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 kg 7 along with a generous payload allowance, 8 helping adventurous owners carry friends, family and sports equipment with ease, and business operators transport customers and their luggage efficiently.
Pro Power Onboard technology also enables customers to fully utilise the potential of Tourneo Custom’s electrified variants, delivering up to 2.3 kW through sockets in the front cabin – ideal for powering digital devices, tools or sports and camping equipment when off-grid.
