Ford debuts 'multi-activity’ E-Tourneo Courier for 2024
The compact SUV-inspired vehicle supports Ford's goal of achieving zero emissions in Europe by 2035
Ford has unveiled its latest addition to its electric vehicle lineup with the all-new E-Tourneo Courier.
The five-seat ‘multi-activity’ vehicle is said to combine practicality and style with its SUV-inspired design, catering to the needs of urban dwellers.
Performance comes from a 132bhp front-mounted electric motor, which can deliver a variety of driving modes including Normal, Eco and Slippery. There’s no word on battery capacity, but Ford has confirmed its battery pack supports 11kW AC and 100kW DC charging speeds.
At a DC fast charger, Ford says the vehicle can gain 54 miles of range in 10 minutes, and charge from 10-80 per cent in under 35 minutes.
The vehicle’s battery can also be replenished via Ford’s BlueOval Charge Network, which the company says is set to include 500,000 chargers by 2024.
The vehicle's exterior design includes short overhangs, while the EV variant features a ‘coast-to-coast’ light bar and chrome diamond grille, which is said to create a ‘futuristic touch’.
Inside the The E-Tourneo Courier is a digital instrument cluster plus a large 12-inch touchscreen which runs Ford’s latest SYNC 4 infotainment system.
There's also support for wireless integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus over-the-air software updates to improve the vehicle's functionality without the need to visit a dealership.
Production of the E-Tourneo Courier will begin in the second half of 2024 in Craiova, Romania, alongside the Puma crossover, ahead of deliveries expected in late 2024.
In addition to the all-electric version will be an ICE-powered Tourneo Courier, which will come equipped with a 123bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine.
That version will go into production towards the end of 2023, though pricing for both variants remain unconfirmed.
