Ford is targeting potential customers of the VW ID Buzz battery-electric van with upmarket versions of the newly unveiled E-Tourneo Custom passenger van.
The E-Tourneo Custom is one version of Ford's new passenger van range based on the Transit Custom midsize van unveiled earlier this year.
The battery-electric version uses a 74-kilowatt hour battery for a targeted range of 370 km (230 miles) and will be available in high-spec Titanium X trim and in SUV-inspired Active versions.
The van is "suitable for surf trips and summits - and everything in between,” Martin Sander, head of Ford’s Model E electric division in the region, tweeted, touting it as a rival for the VW ID Buzz.
Models in the Custom range will not be sold in the U.S., Ford has said.
