Available in the Transit Custom plug-in hybrid, geofencing technology is designed to help improve local air quality. The PHEV van can detect when it enters a congestion zone or low-emission zone, and then automatically switch to electric only drive mode. Users can also create custom “green zones” to reduce emissions near schools, in urban areas and warehouses.
The geofence module also records information about electric-only operation within low-emission areas. This data can be shared with authorities to confirm compliance within low-emission zones, avoiding the risk of wrongful fines and penalties.
When the Transit Custom PHEV leaves a controlled zone, it automatically switches to the most appropriate drive mode for the next leg of the journey.
