13th September 2017

The Ford Custom Transit PHEV

Ford has unveiled a plug-in hybrid electric van scheduled for production in 2019.

20 of the new PHEV Transit Custom vehicles, which feature a zero-emission range of 31 miles, will be trialled in London over a 12-month period.

The Cleaner Air for London trial will see Transport for London, the Metropolitan Police, British Gas and other high-profile organisations use one or more of the vans as part of their daily operations.

Data from the trial will be used to inform the LoCITY programme, helping it to encourage the use of low emission vehicles.
