INDIANAPOLIS, July 19 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Creative Bus Sales, the nation’s largest bus dealership, announced the purchase of the first thousand new Ford E-Transit vans from Forest River. Forest River has signed a partnership with Ford Motor Company to allow them to complete the passenger upfit on the E-Transit 350 Cargo Vans. The E-Transit is Ford’s first OEM large electric passenger vehicle and is built using the proven Transit 350 Cargo Van platform.

“We are proud to be the first customer to make a significant investment in the innovative and versatile E-Transit platform,” said TJ Matijevich, vice president and general manager of Creative Bus Sales. “This is the first step in showing our commitment to a sustainable future that includes educating employees and customers, improving accessibility to green technologies and investing in charging infrastructure. A key part of this initiative is to prioritize the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

“Forest River is thrilled to see Creative’s continued commitment to electric vehicles, and we are excited to deliver the first 1,000 E-Transits vans,” said David Wright, president of Forest River.

The E-Transit is a full-size electric van with a 68 kWh battery capacity that produces a peak power of 198 kW, equivalent to 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. The one-piece lithium-ion battery has a nominal charge time of eight hours from 0 to 100% (with a 48 A supply) and is located under the floor, which does not reduce the volume of passengers or cargo. Regenerative braking, lower maintenance costs, digital connectivity and state-of-the-art telematics are just some of the benefits of upgrading to an E-Transit.

E-Transits with multiple seating configurations, including up to 12 passengers (plus driver) or up to two wheelchair seats, are available for immediate delivery. Even more floor plan options will be available later this year when another large order from E-Transits is expected.
