2024 Ford E-Transit Adds Range and Faster ChargingFord
  • The 2024 Ford E-Transit cargo van receives a larger battery and an additional onboard charger to improve charging speeds.

  • The new battery has 89.0-kWh of usable capacity, which Ford says improves range on low-roof models by 26 percent and high-roof models by 32 percent.

  • The second onboard charger improves the Transit's charging speed, allowing it to add an estimated 67 miles of range in 15 minutes using a DC fast-charger.

You wouldn't know just by looking, but Ford made several changes under the skin of the 2024 E-Transit cargo van. The maximum range of the popular work van is improved, with Ford tucking a larger battery pack underneath the vehicle, while overall charging times are reduced.

E-Transit Improvements

A new 89.0-kWh battery pack replaces the previous 68.0-kWh unit. Ford claims that brings the E-Transit's estimated range up to 159 miles for the low-roof model. That may not sound like much, but the figure marks an increase of 26 percent compared to 2023. The range of high-roof models increases by 32 percent. Based on Ford's 108-mile estimate for 2023 E-Transit long-roof models, an increase of 32 percent should bring that figure to roughly 143 miles.

Despite the larger battery, charging times for the 2024 E-Transit should be noticeably faster than the previous models. The increase in charging speeds stems from the addition of a second onboard charger, allowing the E-Transit to charge at a peak power of 176 kilowatts compared to the old van's 115-kW peak. According to Ford, 15 minutes at a DC fast-charger that's capable of 180 kW or more can add 67 miles of range for the low-roof van. Along with the Mustang Mach-E and the F-150 Lightning, the E-Transit now has access to Tesla's Supercharger network with the help of a newly available NACS adapter, which vastly increases the number of available chargers.

Ford also says the E-Transit's powertrain is untouched for 2024. Each model is powered by a single-motor rear-wheel-drive setup rated at 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. We reached out to Ford for model-specific pricing on the updated E-Transit and will update this story when we hear back.
