Sollers plans to launch electric car Ford Transit


In November of 2020, Ford Motor unveiled the lightweight, electric-powered commercial Ford Transit and announced it would begin the production in 2022. A representative of the Sollers Ford Company informed Kommersant that the assembly of such cars will begin in Russia as well. Recall that today Ford Transit is produced in our country in Yelabuga, mainly in diesel versions. There is a demand for them.

According to the analytical agency AUTOSTAT, in 2020, 13.9 thousand new such cars were bought in the market of new light commercial vehicles in Russia, which is higher by almost 10% than in 2019. In the model ranking at the end of the previous year, Transit was the second one in terms of market volume. According to Kommersant, Sollers has no doubts that there will be demand for electric versions, especially in large cities with a high population density.

Transit with an electric engine is 40% more economical than the diesel version. And if the sales of such vehicles are more actively supported by government programs (the construction of charging stations in large cities, the expansion of incentives for environmentally friendly vehicles, the inclusion of such vehicles in preferential operating leasing programs, free travel on toll road sections, and a number of others), they have real a chance for development.

Probably, all these issues "Sollers Ford" will now lobby in government circles - together with other representatives of the automotive industry. At the same time, the plant in Yelabuga, of course, will continue to produce diesel versions after it launches electric ones.
