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.

Ford is already investigating how plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) can operate in London, and has now announced it will also begin testing of similar vehicles in Valencia in Spain. The collaboration between Ford Smart Mobility, the regional government of Valencia and the Valencia City leadership, is designed to see how Transit Custom PHEV fleets could contribute to cleaner air targets and enhanced productivity.
