As a mid-size, front wheel drive van, the Transit Custom is highly versatile offering exceptional practicality. Designed to suit all your business needs, it’s the ideal companion out on the road, safely transporting you and your equipment from A to B.
Boasting high quality craftsmanship, the Transit Custom has a muscular stance. It takes on any challenge with ease and is available in three variants: Transit Van, Double Cab and Kombi. There are also two body lengths and two roof heights to choose from, depending on your requirements. Bold body colours and an instantly recognisable three-bar front grille with the Ford logo work to ensure the Custom turns heads no matter where it goes.
Hop inside and you’ll notice a remarkably comfortable, durable and impeccably finished interior with a variety of seating options. The standard three-seater is accompanied by the five-seat Double Cab which features an extra row of seats in the back with a bulkhead behind them and sliding doors with windows.
With one of the largest cubic volumes of any mid-sized van, the Custom is great for day-to-day tasks. The short wheelbase van offers a capacity of six cubic metres, while the long wheelbase increases this to 6.8 cubic metres. Maximum payload can reach up to 1,459kg.
The new, state-of-the-art, plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) Transit Custom is purpose-built to help you work more efficiently than ever. The advanced electric powertrain can be charged at the mains and runs solely on electric power on shorter journeys. With support from the multi award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine, the van delivers outstanding efficiency, even on longer trips. The Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid van helps reduce local pollution, and delivers all the flexibility, capability and dependability you expect from a Ford Transit Custom.
The latest Transit Custom vans benefit from a highly efficient 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine that was introduced in 2016. This saves fuel without compromising performance and meets the strict Euro Stage 6 emissions standard. A six-speed manual gearbox comes as standard, offering a safe, smooth and quiet ride. Meanwhile the Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid, when fully charged, can take you more than 30 miles (48kilometres) using the electric motor alone. Ideal on those short trips in the city that usually result in low efficiency and more money spent on fuel. On longer journeys, the 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine helps to extend the van’s range to over 310 miles (500 kilometres) – working with regenerative braking to recharge the battery. And once sufficiently charged, you can switch back to electric only, helping you save money and reduce pollution.
The Ford Transit Custom benefits from a wide range of technology-enhanced safety features including intelligent speed assist, adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitoring system and more. With regards to entertainment, Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system enables smartphone connectivity allowing you to play music, access navigation and control your apps while out on the road.
