Ford has unveiled the all-new E-Tourneo Courier, a fully electric compact people carrier with SUV-inspired looks that will launch in European markets from late 2024. The MPV is a five-seat multi-activity vehicle with a distinctive SUV-inspired design, offering plentiful space for passengers and their belongings within a compact city-friendly footprint.
The latest addition to Ford’s versatile Tourneo family features a refined all-electric driveline, complemented by an extensive array of digital experiences and connected features to help make EV ownership attractive and accessible, with convenient over-the-air updates to enhance the product over time.
“Exciting new products like E‑Tourneo Courier are the future of Ford in Europe – electric, fun, and fuelled by a restless need for adventure,” said Martin Sander, general manager, Ford Model e, Europe. “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. The company is investing $50 billion (£40 billion GBP) globally through 2026 to achieve a targeted run rate of more than 2 million all-electric vehicles by the end of that year.
The vehicle offers both 11kW AC and 100kW DC charging options, and charge management is made easier with Ford’s end-to-end home charging solution, handy app, and scheduling capability to take advantage of cheaper energy tariffs where available. A typical 7kW overnight domestic charge from 10-100 per cent takes 7.8 hours.
The all-electric model will arrive in 2024 for customers across Europe. It follows the EcoBoost petrol‑engined Tourneo Courier that opens for order this summer, with initial deliveries before the end of 2023. Sadly, for American customers, it’s unlikely to make it to the United States because it’s too small for US tastes.
