Ford unveiled its all-new E-Tourneo Courier compact electric people carrier, which will be available in European markets starting in late 2024 Ford E-Tourneo Courier, essentially the passenger version of the E-Transit Courier van panel unveiled last week, is described as a multi-activity vehicle that can seat five people and has a small footprint for city use.
2024 Ford E-Tourneo Courier Redesign
The E-Tourneo Courier, from a styling standpoint, builds on the E-Transit Courier by bringing in a more SUV-like look, especially with the Active trim, shown here. This adds a roof color contrast, wheel arch moldings, and roof bars, as well as unique seat fabrics. The E-Tourneo Courier Active is also equipped with front and rear skid plates.
The E-Tourneo Courier offers both ICE-powered and all-electric drivetrains. The EV is easily distinguishable from its gasoline-powered sibling, thanks to the exclusive coast-to-coast light bar and Ford’s signature chrome diamond grille. The E-Tourneo Courier’s dashboard is the same as that of the E-Transit Courier. Highlights include the “signboard”, a digital instrument panel with a full-digital instrument cluster, and SYNC 4, the infotainment system controlled by the large 12-inch touch screen. The vehicle is also equipped with a wireless charging pad, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration.
The electric people carrier has a split 60-40 rear bench and a trunk that is 44 percent larger than the Tourneo Courier. The electric people carrier offers improved headroom and shoulder space for passengers, along with a customizable center console and hidden boot cubby. The E-Tourneo Courier is powered by the same 100-kilowatt front-mounted motor as the E-Transit Courier. It also offers Normal, Eco, and Slippery driving modes.
Ford is secretive about battery pack capacity but claims that it requires both 11 kW of AC charging and 100 kW of DC charging. The overnight AC charge of 10 to 100% is said to take about 5.7 hours. A DC fast charger can charge 10 to 80 percent in under 35 minutes. This allows customers to increase their range by 54 miles (87 km) within 10 minutes.
Ford’s new EV SUV, the 2024 E-Tourneo Courier, is a hybrid between a minivan and an SUV. It is called a “Multi-Activity Vehicle” because it looks like a mix between a minivan, and an SUV. Ford began to push for EV SUVs after the launch of the E-Transit Courier & Explorer EV.
The E-Tourneo Courier is more like an electric van than an SUV. It’s a product from the E-Transit, which was launched in April. The automaker calls it an SUV, but in reality, it’s an E-Transit with windows. The automaker calls them SUVs, but they are more like the “coupes”, which are four-door sedans that have sloping roofs.
Only Europe and E-Tourneo Courier will receive it. A significant marketing campaign will highlight its adaptability. Ford claims that it “combines SUV style with roomy practicality and city-friendly maneuverability.”
The E-Tourneo Courier can accommodate five adults with their luggage comfortably thanks to the 60:40 split back bench and the 44% larger boot compared to the previous Tourneo Courier. The center console can be configured, there is a boot cubby hidden, and the 44-liter trunk replaces the internal combustion motor. This allows for more headroom and shoulder space, as well as useful storage.
The range of the electric vehicle will be revealed closer to the sale date. The vehicle is compatible with both 11kW AC and 100% DC charging. A 7kW domestic overnight charge will take an average of 7.8 hours to get from 10% to 100%.
The DC fast charger allows customers to charge their cars from 10% up to 80% and add 54 miles in less than 35 minutes. Ford’s Romanian factory will begin producing the Tourneo Courier in 2023 with a 1.0 liter EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 125 PS.
The new car features a roof with a contrasting color, roof rails, and wheelbase protectors. The Active version also has upholstery in a special fabric. The SYNC 4 infotainment is controlled by a 12-inch multimedia display. Interior features include the fully digital signboard instrument panel and a fully digital instrument cluster. The fully connected cabin features a wireless Android Auto system and Apple CarPlay integration, as well as a charging station for your phone.
The 2024 Ford E-Tourneo Courier Produced
Delivery will begin before the end of 2023. The E-Tourneo Courier, which is an all-electric vehicle, will be produced in the second half of 2024. Deliveries are expected to begin by late 2024. Both variants are built in Ford’s Craiova plant, in Romania. This is also where the all-electric Puma will be produced. Ford has promised to offer 10 all-electric cars in Europe by the year 2024. The E-Tourneo Courier will be one of them.
It’s unlikely that it will make it to the United States, as it is too small for US consumers’ tastes. The van is based on Ford’s smallest van, measuring approximately 170 inches in length (4.3 meters).
