Although it’s common to see a fused car, truck and van running around town, the 2013 Ford Transit Connect EV stands out from the crown because of its highly innovative features, technologies and capacity. The Ford Transit Connect EV’s biggest advantage is that it may be used for business purposes. It comes in with a big cargo space which may be increased by putting down the Transit’s back seat. The overall cargo space can be as large as 129.6 cubic feet with a maximum cargo capacity of 1600 pounds. Apart from the large space, Transit Connect’s small size makes it easy for it to maneuver in small areas and course its way through heavy traffic. The 2013 Ford Transit Connect EV is being powered by an innovative liquid cooled 28 kWh lithium-ion battery pack giving the cargo van the advantage to run faster and for longer duration. This engine together with its lightweight materials all make up an electric cargo van uniquely created and innovated.
With the Transit Connect EV’s engine, the electric cargo van can run up to 75 mph and has a maximum power of up to 140 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque. When the battery is depleted, the cargo van may be charged using its standard 120-volt outlet or 240-volt outlet that usually requires 6-8 hours of charging with a driving range of 50-80 miles.
Inside the Ford Transit Connect EV is a vinyl flooring, cloth-covered bucket seats giving passengers with smooth and comfortable ride. Its entertainment system includes AM/FM/CD/MP3 capacities while an auxiliary audio input adds a little touch to it.
When it comes to safety, the 2013 Transit Connect EV has also lots to brag about. Its safety features include driver and front-passenger front and side airbags, stability and traction control, 4-wheel ABS, rear-sensing alarm system, collapsible steering column and tire pressure monitoring system.
