For some time, Ford began a crusade to electrify its line of vehicles. Within this initiative, he presented a plan for the production of seven fully electric vehicles that will land on the European market with 2024 as the deadline. In addition to these seven products, we also presented five commercial vehicles. It is here where we find the Tourneo family, which offers us a 100% electric and innovative experience.
Ford’s E-Tourneo Custom is one of them. It is also a model that comes after the premiere of the E-Transit Custom a couple of months ago. Today, they offer us a new model that they describe as “multi-activity”. The icing on the cake is its all-electric arrangementwithout sacrificing the precious space and comfort of the brand.
Ford describes its E-Tourneo Custom as the flagship of the new Tourneo range. With it, not only comes the new electric charging system that is becoming more and more fashionable due to its energy and environmental efficiency, but it also offers a luxury finish. The company has arranged a space in its E-Tourneo Custom that can be used by up to 8 peopletogether with quite versatile seats and equipment that will allow you to manage the space inside the Tourneo.
Ford E-Tourneo Custom: an electric car that does not sacrifice space or comfort
Although the electrical charging capacity of this device is its most striking point, it is not the only one, far from it. The Ford E-Tourneo Custom offers great space management. Also, offers hands-free power doors, a panoramic glass roof, a Bang & Olufsen brand sound system and state-of-the-art technology for up-to-date navigation.
Ford’s E-Tourneo Custom also includes a series of ergonomic adaptations for laptops and tablets. Thus, you can convert the steering wheel into a table if necessary thanks to an adaptable inclination. This is something that we already saw in the E-Transit Custom a few months ago, and that has become a great addition to the brand.
Thus, we have that the E-Tourneo Custom is a vehicle with a modern design, but without fanfare. Ford has equipped it with the latest technology on the market, including those that offer greater comfort to the user. An approach that more than one type of consumer will appreciate.
