Ford e-Transit picks up Euro NCAP Gold Award for Advanced Driver Assist Systems.

Ford has earned the commercial vehicle a Gold Award from independent vehicle safety authority Euro NCAP based on the Ford E-Transit’s comprehensive suite of driver assistance systems.

The tech includes autonomous emergency braking when approaching vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, as well as lane keeping technology, traffic sign recognition and occupant monitoring systems. As well as a new custom trail version.

The Gold Awards for the E-Transit means Ford now offers the only two vehicles in the 2-tonne segment with Euro NCAP’s Gold Award for driver assistance, after the diesel Transit models were commended in December 2020.

This Gold Award given to the E‑Transit is true testament to Ford’s commitment to customer safety across its commercial vehicle range,” said Stuart Southgate, director, Safety Engineering, Ford of Europe.

Overall the E-Transit offers technologies including Pre‑Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Information System with Lane Change Warning, Junction Assist, a 360-degree camera and Reverse Brake Assist.

Ford’s Transit Custom Trail is also a Gold Award winner, making Ford the only manufacturer with Gold-rated vans in the 1‑tonne, 2-tonne and EV segments.

The company is already testing E-Transits in typical daily operation with selected customers across Europe, and customer deliveries are scheduled to begin in spring 2022.
