Ford to introduce E-Tourneo Courier

A few weeks after the compact electric delivery van E-Transit Courier, Ford also presented its passenger car version, E-Tourneo Courier.

The battery-electric five-seater with a length of just under 4,40 meters and an “SUV-inspired design” is intended to score with a generous amount of space for passengers and luggage. With an output of 100 kW, the drive system is the same as the E-Transit Courier’s.

The specifications for charging power are also identical: the battery capacity was not revealed in the announcement, but charging can be done via AC with up to 11 kW and on DC charging stations with up to 100 kW capacity. Ford also communicates that a “typical overnight AC charge from 10-100% takes almost six hours” (5,7, to be precise). Customers can add an 87 km range at a DC fast charger in about ten minutes and charge from 10-80% in under 35 minutes.

“We designed E-Tourneo Courier to help customers get the most out of life – whether out with family and friends, or coming home with the rear seats flipped and bikes in the back – and the exterior design expresses that ‘no-nonsense’ character,” said Amko Leenarts, Design Director, Ford, Europe.

“The SUV‑inspired design is rugged outside and roomy inside, while the modern EV details add exclusivity and clearly announce E‑Tourneo Courier as part of Ford’s electric revolution.”

Similarly to the E-Transit Courier, the E-Tourneo Courier is not scheduled for market launch until the end of 2024 and will be manufactured in Craiova, Romania, from the second half of 2024 alongside the Puma crossover, which is also set to be offered with an EV variant by 2024. The all-new (ICE° Tourneo Courier with a 125 PS 1.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engine enters production in 2023.

Electric future in Europe

Ford is relying on the vehicle to help launch the new Ford electric direction as Martin Sander, European CEO of Ford Model e, says: “Exciting new products like E‑Tourneo Courier are the future of Ford in Europe – electric, fun, and fuelled by a restless need for adventure.”

“Our new all-electric multi-activity vehicle is the latest demonstration of our multi-billion dollar global push to scale EV production and deliver connected, must-have vehicles for our customers.”

E-Tourneo Courier is one of ten all-electric vehicles Ford has committed to offering in Europe by 2024, as it targets zero emissions for all vehicle sales in the region by 2035. In addition, the company is investing $50 billion globally through 2026 to achieve a targeted run rate of more than two million all-electric vehicles by the end of that year.

Ford had restructured its vehicle business into three different units in March, with Model e being responsible for electric vehicles. The US American company expects ramp-up costs for the electric vehicle business to extend into billion-dollar sums. Nevertheless, the company claims that the business will be profitable in 2024.
