Concept reveals new Transit

Date: 23 February 2012

Ford is to reveal a Tourneo Custom Concept people-carrier at the Geneva Motor Show in March that previews its new Transit range, which will make its debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April.

The eight-seat Tourneo adopts the Kinetic Design language already seen on Ford's car range.

"The Tourneo Custom Concept communicates very clearly a dramatic new design direction for Ford's commercial vehicle range, which will be introduced later in 2012," the company said.

The concept features the manufacturer's latest Econetic Technologies, including Auto Start/Stop and Smart Regenerative Charging, to target best-in-class fuel economy. It is powered by Ford's 2.2-litre Duratorg TDCi diesel engine.

The new line-up of commercial vehicles heralded by the Tourneo Concept will initially appear in one-tonne guise and will be sold in Europe and Asia. Power outputs of 100, 125 and 150hp will be available, paired with six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive and two wheelbases will be offered.

Ford of Europe boss Stephen Odell said: "2012 is a tremendously significant year for Ford as we begin the roll-out of a completely new range of commercial vehicles. Our market leading commercials have established a tremendous reputation for value and durability and our new range is destined to raise this to a new level."
