MyGlassTruck now offers exterior and interior glass racks for installation on the Ford E-Transit electric cargo van. Weighing half as much as a steel rack, our aluminum glass carriers have a minimal impact on the expected range for electric vehicles.
What is the Ford E-Transit?
Introduced at the end of 2021, The Ford E-Transit is “the first of two all-electric vehicles purpose-built for Ford commercial customers”. According to Ford, the electric Transit offers customers the same interior cargo dimensions and most of the same mounting points as the gasoline powered Transit van. This is great news for you, our customers! It means the glass carriers that you depend on to do your job will fit in this electric van with little to no modification to their current design.
Advantages of the E-Transit
- Long electric range: Ford claims that the E-Transit is a smart workhorse for North American cities, with the targeted range designed to adequately meet commercial customer’s needs. The range of the low roofline E-Transit is 126 miles, while the medium roof van has a range of 116 miles, and the high roofed E-Transit has a range of 108 miles.
- Extensive configuration options: The E-Transit is available in three roof heights, three body lengths, and three models- Chassis Cab, Cutaway and Cargo Van. This extensive range of options allows you to customize your van based on your needs.
- Charging benefits: The E-Transit includes an optional feature which turns the van into a mobile power source by providing up to 2.4 kilowatts to charge or power tools and equipment on the road and at job sites, eliminating the need for a generator.
The Challenge of Up-Fitting an Electric Vehicle With a Glass Rack.
With the location of the battery packs, underneath the van, our team of engineers were able to design a mounting system for exterior and interior racks that eliminates the need to drill through the van’s frame or floor to mount the racks. Our installation process does not compromise the van’s structure, electrical systems or dive components.
The Most Efficient Glass Rack.
The Ford E-Transit Glass Rack from MyGlassTruck is the ideal solution for transporting your glass. Each glass carrier we build is quick and easy to load while also durable enough to provide years of trouble-free service. Available in a range of standard lengths and heights to fit your specific vehicle your racking solution can be customized with a selection of interior racks and options. We offer professional installation at our locations, or can ship your fully-assembled rack direct to you with installation hardware and instructions.
We’re the standard the others copy. MyGlassTruck’s engineers have worked directly with glaziers over the last 30+ years to design the most popular glass rack in the industry. We pioneered aluminum construction for higher weight capacity, full-coverage padding for superior glass protection, and a weld-less design for longevity and easy field service. Each component is cut to exacting standards on our CNC plasma cutter. All our rack designs are created using a state-of-the-art 3D CAD system and made at our modern 50,000 sq. foot facility in New Jersey, just outside Philadelphia.
