Ford Transit Connect Electric
Ford Transit Connect Electric
Ford Motor Company's first electric vehicle won't be a passenger car but an electric version of the automaker's award-winning Transit Connect small commercial van. It goes on sale later this year.

To make the Transit Connect Electric, Ford will deliver Turkish-built Transit Connects -- minus engine, transmission and gas tank -- to Azure Dynamics, a Michigan-based company that produces electric and hybrid commercial vehicles. Azure will add the electric drivetrain and appropriate instrumentation.

The finished truck will have a range of about 80 miles in city driving and a top speed of 75 mph.
