The Ford Transit Custom is a mid-sized, front wheel drive van produced by Ford Europe since 2012. It is the smaller version of the Ford Transit Mk.8. As with the rest of the Transit lineup, the better-appointed passenger versions are branded Tourneo Custom.

Overview

The Ford Transit Custom was unveiled at the 2012 Commercial Vehicle Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England.[1][2] Currently, the Transit Custom is not sold in the United States and Canada, but it is sold in Mexico. It was not sold in China until 2016.

One engine is available, a 2.2-litre inline-four Duratorq turbodiesel, in three power output levels: 74 kW (101 PS; 99 hp) and 310 N⋅m (230 lb⋅ft) of torque, 92 kW (125 PS; 123 hp) and 350 N⋅m (260 lb⋅ft), 113 kW (154 PS; 152 hp) and 385 N⋅m (284 lb⋅ft). There will also be a plug-in hybrid version of the Tourneo, which will be using Ford's 1-litre Ecoboost petrol engine and an electric engine with a 13,6 kWh battery. The petrol engine will act as a range extender, as the front wheels of the car are driven by the electric engine. It can go 50 kilometers on electricity, but up to 500 kilometers using the petrol engine. Fuel consumption is reported to be 3.3 L/100 km. This version will be available in the second half of 2019.[3]
