The Ford Transit van has become the most popular commercial van in the whole of Europe for over 40 years, since its introduction it has seen a wide range of adoptions such as, Minibuses (Ford Tourneo), Tipper and of course its smaller family member the Ford Transit Connect.
One country that the Transit has been seeing a great deal of popularity in is Russia, with yesterday seeing the 5,000th transit to roll off the company's production line in Elabuga. This is quite an achievement for Ford Russia as the vehicle has only been in production at the plant for half a year.
The 5,000th Transit van was a frozen white, 125ps diesel, long wheel base model; Ford Transit vans in Russia are available with the following options: single cab, double cab, bus, Kombi-van.
With the Transit remaining as popular as ever, isn't it time that you visited your nearest Ford commercial dealers and took a look at their great range of new Ford vans?
