  • 6 Transit Connect Electric > Ford Motor Company, collaborating with Azure Dynamics, introduced an Electric Transit Connect commercial van to market in 2010. DUAL BADGE > Azure will integrate its proprietary Force Drive™ battery electric drivetrain in the Transit Connect Electric.
  • 7 Transit Connect Electric > The collaboration with Azure Dynamics for the Transit Connect Electric will build on the existing business relationship between Ford and Azure as well as their shared experience with battery supplier, Johnson Controls-Saft.
  • 8 Transit Connect Electric What is it? Introducing the Transit Connect, Ford‘s first dedicated small commercial van. > Versatile > Spacious > Hard-working > Proven > Electric
  • 9 Transit Connect ICE—History > Over 600,000 sold since 2003 to customers in 58 countries on 3 continents. > Introduced to North America in 2009 & its proven to be a big success. > Designed, engineered & manufactured on a dedicated global commercial vehicle platform to meet tough commercial vehicle durability standards.
  • 10 Battery Electric—Why Buy? > Unique combination of car-like driving dynamics, cargo capacity, accessibility & low purchase & operation costs. > Commercial users often travel predictable, short-range routes with frequent stop-and-go driving in urban and suburban environments, therefore a BEV makes sense. > For customers seeking sustainable mobility solutions, the Transit Connect Electric Vehicle with Azure Force Drive™ will provide a zero emissions option.
