Ford is far ahead of GM on electrification, having already delivered the first E-Transit vans to customers earlier this year. The Ford E-Transit starts at $45,000 and can travel 126 miles on a charge with 266 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque going out to the rear wheels. Those specs aren’t as impressive as the BrightDrop, but the E-Transit is a more affordable van that makes more sense for smaller businesses.
By electrifying the Express and Savana, GM can spread out the costs of the Ultium platform over a higher-volume product. Sources believe the electric replacements will only come in cargo guise with no word yet on windowed passenger models with rear seat rows.
