Bigger than a minivan and packing 230 miles of all-electric range, the new Ford E-Tourneo is bringing van culture back!
The newly revealed Ford Tourneo range of minivans have arrived in Europe, with a lineup that includes both a fully electric BEV variant and a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) option. The electric version, dubbed “E-Tourneo,” packs a 74 kWh usable capacity battery that’s good for an estimated 230 miles (370 km) of all-electric range on the European cycle.
The electric van’s battery helps people get to work in more ways than one, too – Ford’s Pro Power Onboard generator technology offers 2.3 kW of continuous power to keep your home office or home-away-from-home running for hours. What’s more, the E-Tourneo can tow up to 4,400 lbs. (2,000 kgs).
The new E-Tourneo’s electric motor produces 215 peak HP (or, 160 kilowatts), and maximum torque at 0 rpm, for zippy in-town acceleration and a spirited feel.
The Tourneo’s other electrified powertrain option, the PHEV, combines a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and smaller electric motor backed by an 11.8 kWh battery pack that offers an estimated electric driving range of 30 miles (approx. 50 km).
The latest Tourneo rides on a new architecture that gives the van a lower floor height. There’s also now a standard independent rear suspension that provides improved ride and handling, according to Ford. Buyers can select standard and long wheelbase lengths. There are also a variety of trims like the somewhat rugged-looking Active, flashy Sport, and range-topping Titanium X. Deliveries of the new electrified Ford vans are set to begin in Europe, in mid-2023. In the meantime, you can check out a few photos of the new E-Touneo, below, and let us know what you think of the van in the comments.
