Ford is making an all-electric version of its popular Transit cargo van for the US and Canadian markets, slated to be released in 2021.

The electric Transit van will also be equipped with a number of Ford’s safety and driver assistance features, like collision warning and assist, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic lane-keeping.
