How will the Ford Pro™ pilot program work?
Companies throughout the country, including Penske Truck Leasing and National Grid, have received preproduction units of the Ford E-Transit van as part of the Ford Pro™ pilot program. The intention is to leverage early learnings to help with deployment when the vehicle hits the market early next year. These E-Transit pilot vans will be used in fleets across various industries, including rental, delivery, service, maintenance, telecom, and utilities, to demonstrate how battery-powered vehicles combined with Ford Pro Charging solutions and Ford Pro Intelligence can help improve fleet efficiencies.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Ford Pro on the introduction and real-world testing of these new electric vehicles as the first truck rental and leasing company to do so. We expect to see strong utilization and interest from customers making final-mile deliveries, regional deliveries, and eventually consumer use for smaller household moves.”Art Vallely, president, Penske Truck Leasing.
Ford Pro Intelligence provides vehicle-connected technology solutions, such as Ford Pro E-Telematics software tools. The technology connects wirelessly, allowing businesses to manage fleets with real-time vehicle insights. These include charge event monitoring, vehicle tracking, state of charge, range, charge history and logs, charging/battery settings and alerts, and departure preconditioning. All of this helps to maximize range and save battery life while on the road. So, if you’re a business owner who needs similar features in your work trucks, this is perfect for you.
