Liberty e-care Launch Repair Programme for the Ford Transit Connect Electric
COVENTRY, England -- October 16, 2013
Liberty e-care, a division of Liberty Electric Cars, is expanding its business
as ever more EVs populate our roads. The company recently launched its repair
programme for the Ford Transit Connect electric van, an all-electric van
developed in a collaborative venture between Azure Dynamics and Ford Motor
Company. The Transit Connect Electric is well suited for commercial fleets
that travel predictable, short-range routes with frequent stop-and-start
driving, in urban and suburban environments. The vehicle has a 75 mile per
hour top speed and can drive up to 80 miles on a single charge—perfect for the
requirements of a local delivery cycle.
The electric van had been launched in 2010 in the US and Europe; among the
first US customers were AT&T, Canada Post, the New York Power Authority and
Southern California Edison. Around 1500 units were sold globally before Azure
stopped production in March 2012. Liberty e-care’s staff has developed a full
programme to service and repair these vehicles especially with regard to the
battery which is no longer available. This unique service is available to both
Ford main dealers and directly to the owners of Transit Connect Electric
Liberty e-Care is one of the key EV service providers in Europe. Over the last
few years Liberty has steadily increased its staff with highly skilled
engineers, equipped with new and unique diagnostic tools, experience in safe
intervention for high voltage systems, and access to the right parts to affect
quality repairs. The company has just renewed, for the third year, its
contract with one of America’s largest truck manufacturers to provide all
aftermarket warranty support to its key electric vehicle (EV) customers in
Europe. These include major companies such as FedEx, UPS and Veolia, who are
using the first ground up electric trucks known as the “Modec,” an EV that was
launched six years ago to make pollution-free deliveries in urban areas.
