The Tourneo Custom can seat up to nine across three rows of seats, with eight people maximum for the electric version.
The battery cells for the electric version are the same as Ford uses in the F-150 Lightning pickup and are supplied by SK On.
Ford will also offer an optional vehicle-to-load charger, which allows customers to run appliances from the van’s battery.
The Transit Custom will also form the basis of the new VW Transporter range of midsize vans as part of a multi-vehicle production agreement between the two companies.
The companies said in 2020 that they would produce a total of 8 million commercial vehicles together, including pickups and vans.
VW has split its passenger van strategy by launching a separate Multivan on the MBQ platform VW offers both van and passenger versions of the ID Buzz, starting at 54,430 euros for the commercial variant.
Ford has not released prices of the E-Tourneo Custom.
The E-Tourneo Custom is one of nine full-electric vehicles Ford plans to launch in Europe by 2024, including a battery-electric version of the Puma small crossover, its best-selling passenger car in the region.
Ford’s first European produced EV will be a midsize SUV that will go into production at Ford's factory in Cologne, Germany, next year. The crossover will use Volkswagen Group's MEB electric platform that underpins the VW ID4 SUV as well as the ID Buzz.
Ford said in March it would build an electric-vehicle battery plant in Turkey with South Korean battery maker SK On and its Turkish joint venture partner, Koc Holding. The plant aims to have an annual production capacity of 30 to 45 gigawatt-hours, Ford and SK On said.
