Ford is launching a new a multi-million pound project designed to help improve air quality in London in the UK, as the auto maker plans to introduce 13 new EV models in the next five years.

The initiative, supported by Transport for London (TfL), will include a 12-month trial in the UK capital of 20 new plug-in hybrid Transit Custom vans that run solely on electric power, for the majority of city trips, such as deliveries or maintenance work.

Ford will provide 20 PHEV Transits to a range of commercial fleets across London, including Transport for London’s fleet, to explore how such vans can contribute to cleaner air targets while boosting productivity for operators in urban conditions.
