Geofencing tech for plug-in Ford Transit Custom

The new Ford Transit Custom plug-in hybrid now comes with the option of geofencing technology to help improve urban air quality. Using live location data, the Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) automatically switches to electric drive mode whenever entering predefined areas such as congestion and low‑emission zones.

The geofencing tech need not only apply to city centres: vehicle operators can also create “green zones” to encourage low-emission driving near schools, playgrounds and warehouses.  When the vehicle leaves a controlled zone, it automatically switches to the most appropriate drive mode for the next leg of the journey.

“Improving the quality of air – and quality of life – in our towns and cities is a goal that we all have a responsibility to drive towards,” said Mark Harvey, Ford’s European commercial vehicle mobility director.

“The Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid and its new geofencing feature helps our customers to make a real contribution to that goal without compromising on efficiency or productivity.”
