After teasing the E-Transit for a couple of weeks, Ford has officially unveiled the van which is going to cost less $45,000 in the US. This car has been in works since 2016 when Ford announced its electrification plans in 2016. 

"Ford is North America and Europe's commercial truck and van leader, so the transition of fleet vehicles to zero emissions, especially for the fast-growing last-mile delivery segment, is critical to achieving our carbon neutrality goal by 2050. Ford is ready to lead the charge, starting with the all-electric Transit and all-electric F-150 on the way. This is good for the planet and a huge advantage for customers to help lower their operating costs and provide connected fleet management technologies that will help their businesses," said Jim Farley, Ford's President and CEO.
