Electric Transit Connect


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-Saft, 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.

All of our vehicles are backed with our comprehensive service and warranty support.

Electric Transit Connect Diagram

  1. LeveL 2 Charge Port
    the vehicle is connected to the electrical grid through this port when charging. Capable of 120V or 240V AC charging.

  2. High-VoLtage Battery
    liquid cooled 28 kwh lithium-ion battery pack with internal sensors and controller.

  3. High-Voltage Junction Box
    Distributes DC power from battery to components and contains high-voltage fuses.

  4. Level 2 Charger
    uses 120V or 240V AC input from charge port. Converts AC power to DC power to charge battery in 6 to 8 hours at 240V.

  5. Motor Controller & inverter
    Converts DC from the battery to 3 phase AC for the traction motor. Controls the speed and torque of the traction motor.

  6. Traction Motor
    Converts electrical energy to wheel torque. speed & torque outputs are based on accelerator input.

  7. A/C Compressor
    Integrated motor, compressor and controller powered by high-voltage DC. used for interior air conditioning.

  8. Electric Vacuum Pump
    Provides vacuum for the power brake booster.

  9. DC/DC Converter
    Converts high-voltage DC power to keep the 12V battery charged and to supply power for 12V accessories.

  10. GearBox
    Fixed-ratio gear reduction increases torque and has integrated park pawl.

  11. Electric Power Steering
    12V powered smart system takes information from vehicle speed and steering sensors to provide the correct amount of assist, reducing energy consumption.

  12. Vehicle ControL Unit (VCU)
    Processes all driver and component inputs to control vehicle operation.

  13. PTC Electric Heater
    Converts high-voltage DC power to heat fluid. used for interior heating and windshield defrosting.

  14. Electric Coolant Pumps
    12V powered pumps circulate coolant through battery pack, traction system, DC/DC converter and heat exchanger.
