Koln, 23. February 2012 – ford shows at the geneva motor show (8. To 18. Marz 2012) the study transit tourneo custom concept. Thus, the manufacturer aims in the direction of the successful vw multivan, also known as "bull". The ford-van offers space up to nine people and should point above all by a particularly good equipment.
Luxury ambience in the interior
The interior of the concept car is two-tone designed and more reminiscent of a car than to a commercial vehicle. Ford promises one "perfect workmanship and high quality materials". So the seats with a combination of hand-wedding leather and chic fabric railways are related – at least with the exhibit. The rear armchairs are waiting with varied adjustment options and can be completely expanded if required. Many of the technical characteristics come from ford cars. For example, a start-stop and a recuperation system should help in sprit saving. In addition, there is the communication and entertainment system sync with voice control. Security equipment includes side and head airbags, a jerky camera, a tracking assistant and a mutual warning.
Under the bonnet of the custom concept comes an optimized version of the 2.2-liter diesel engine with 155 hp. The machine supplies a torque of 385 nm and should be particularly economical.

As motorizations are three diesel with 100, 125 and 155 hp for election. All transit custom versions have a standard six-speed gearbox and front drive. You will be optional with a short or long wheelbase.
