Ford to test PHEV vans in London

Ford will test its recently announced plug-in hybrid Transit Connect vans in a year-long trial in London, writes Brian Byrne.

The vans are part of a major increase in the range of vehicles in the brand's range, which will add 13 variants by 2021.

The PHEV Transit Connects will go on sale in 2019. With a pure electric range of 31 miles, they are expected to work on electric power only for most of their work in the city.

A number of partners in the pilot project include Transport of London.
