image for Best EV Vans Coming to Australia in 2024 With the electrified era well and truly here, you might be wondering what work-ready EV cargo vans are hitting the market in 2024.

Battery-electric powertrains and vans are quite a good pairing, considering their unique motor layout can allow for even more cargo space and practicality than their ICE counterparts.

Electric vans are also smooth behind the wheel and capitalise on the frequent stop-start driving conditions around town by recapturing that energy during braking and feeding it back to the battery.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best electric vans currently on sale and coming to Australia at some point in 2024.

Ford E-Transit Custom

One of the biggest arrivals in the EV van space in 2024 is without a doubt the Ford E-Transit Custom, a battery-electric take on an icon of the cargo van segment.

With a large battery pack sitting underneath the floor and the option of both standard and high-roof variants, the E-Transit Custom upholds the practical nature of the regular Transit Custom and rides smoothly thanks to independent rear suspension hardware.

The eDeliver9 takes the standard platform and installs a large 88.5kWh battery pack good for a claimed 275km of driving range while retaining impressive 1,300kg payload figures and up to 12.3m3 of cargo space in select eDeliver9 High Roof variants.

  • 10-80% DC Fast Charging: 42 minutes

  • EV Driving Range: 200 - 460km (WLTP cycle)

The ID.Buzz Cargo shares the same platform as the regular ID.Buzz electric people-mover that is also being released in 2024, with an emphasis on rear cargo space means it’s a solid performer for its size when it comes time to lug around deliveries and valuable items.

With smooth on-road manners from its electric motor, the E-Partner is best suited to short hops around the city due to its smaller battery pack, though DC fast charging can see you topping up the battery pack from zero to eighty per cent in a claimed 30-minutes.
