Ford E-Transit battery powered electric delivery van

Plug and Charge electric vehicle energy infrastructure

 

It is anticipated that with a RE kit, the new (proposed) E-Transit might gain at least 100 miles of extra range, plus rapid recharging of the Hydrogen Battery (and roadside recovery), so extending the range of this famous workhorse almost without limit, provided that there are sufficient charging facilities at strategic geographic locations to comply with the provision of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 and Climate Change Act 2008. There is as yet no integrated energy strategy (hence policy) in the UK concerning Fuel Cells and Hydrogen in relation to transport, or industrial and domestic electricity supplies from green, blue or gray sources of the gas.
