FORD TRANSIT HYBRID

FORD TRANSIT HYBRID

We helped Ford create the first Transit PHEV (Plug-in Electric Hybrid Vehicle). We were responsible for the integration of the hybrid powertrain systems into an existing Transit platform without any modifications to the engine bay or load capacity.

We also built the first 20 vehicles, to near production standards for year long trials in London.

The vehicles were so good that, in the words of Mark Harvey, Ford director, Urban Electrified Van programme: “This trial is the first time Ford has given such early prototype vehicles to customers, and we’ve been able to incorporate their feedback directly into the production van. The response has been overwhelmingly positive – operators don’t want to give them back.”

If you have a project that you think might benefit from the same kind of expertise, then contact us to see how Prodrive can help you.
