View Ford Transit Connect EV Inventory >

The California Air Resources Board has decided to make the Azure Dynamics / Ford Transit Connect battery-electric cargo van and wagon eligible to the Hybrid Truck
and Bus Voucher Incentive Project.

The voucher amount will be $10,000 per vehicle
with a $3,000 increase if it’s the first vehicle to be ordered by the fleet in this year’s HVIP. Transit Connect Electric is certified to run in the carpool lanes until 2015.

To create the Transit Connect Electric, Azure integrates its proven Force Drive™ electric powertrain into the award-winning Ford Transit Connect. Utilizing an advanced lithium-ion battery from Johnson Controls, the Transit Connect Electric can achieve a range of 50-80 miles depending on auxiliary usage and drive cycle, and has a top speed of 75 mph. The battery is rechargeable using either a 240-volt or standard 120-volt outlet.
