Ford Pro, the company’s stand-alone commercial vehicle division, announced it will unveil the next step in its exciting electrification journey on May 9, 2022.
The first-of-its-kind business unit focused on Ford’s commercial vehicle customers recently committed to introduce a further four new all-electric commercial vehicles by 2024, following the production start of the hotly-anticipated all-electric E Transit last month.
The new announcement will mark the next key milestone on the road to zero emissions for all Ford vehicle sales in Europe and carbon neutrality across its European footprint of facilities, logistics and suppliers by 2035.
The new electric van will the first model to be revealed since Ford separated its electric passenger car division from its internal combustion engine business in an effort to boost investor interest. The Ford Model E division is now responsible for developing the firm’s electric passenger vehicles and Ford Blue handles internal-combustion-engined ones.
Ford Model e and Ford Blue will be run as distinct businesses, but also support each other – as well as Ford Pro, which is dedicated to delivering a one-stop shop for commercial and government customers with a range of conventional and electric vehicles and a full suite of software, charging, financing, services and support on Ford and non-Ford products. Ford Model e and Ford Blue will also support Ford Drive mobility.
