Ford is testing a hybrid version of the Tourneo Connect van.

Western publications have published photos of a camouflaged prototype of the Ford Tourneo Connect.

Apparently, Ford’s team at the carmaker has been testing a plug-in hybrid version of its small van.

It is almost two years since Ford and VW agreed to jointly develop the vehicles.

The first fruits of this partnership are already visible. In October, Ford unveiled the model year 2022 Tourneo Connect, an upgraded version of Volkswagen’s Caddy.

However, the company has not yet revealed the full range of this vehicle, as new spy photos show that Ford is also planning a plug-in hybrid version of this van.

The spy photos do not show a camouflaged van, although it does have a mismatched front bonnet.

The front of the 2022 Tourneo Connect is recognisable, but alert readers will notice that the rear looks unusual.

It still has the VW logo and the Caddy badge. This Tourneo will be distinguished from the rest of the range by a large charging port on the front wing, where VW usually puts a similar opening.

The estate is likely to get the hybrid powertrain from the VW Golf. This means it will have a 1.4-litre petrol engine combined with a powerful electric motor and battery pack.

The Golf eHybrid develops 204 horsepower and has a range of 64 kilometres in all-electric driving mode.

It’s not clear whether Ford will borrow the same engine combination or get something unique.

If the eHybrid engine remains unchanged, this will be the most powerful option for the US model.

The 1.5-litre EcoBoost turbocharged engine makes 115 hp, while the 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel makes 112 hp.

A manual gearbox is standard on these two models, while a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is an option that could be standard on the hybrid version of the new model.

Ford even offers a more powerful diesel all-wheel drive system with the manual gearbox.
