Transit Rules the World!
Van users around the world are increasingly turning to Ford to get the job done, making the Ford Transit family the best-selling line-up of cargo vans on the planet.
Ford Transit was the best-selling cargo van family both in Europe and globally in 2015, with nearly 400,000 vans registered from the expanded Transit range –Transit, Transit Custom, Transit Connect and Transit Courier - based on IHS Markit registration data.
The success is ongoing - Transit Custom sales in Europe grew 23 per cent to 89,800 units year-on-year during the first three-quarters of 2016, and Transit sales grew 17 per cent to 64,800 units in the same period.
Equipped with an all-new generation of powerful Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, Transit and Transit Custom now offer even greater load-hauling capability alongside improved fuel-efficiency for reduced running costs.
Transit, first made at Langley, Buckinghamshire, in 1965 also remains the UK’s favourite van after over 50 years of sales leadership and after a successful September, commercial vehicle sales are on track to be at a record high at year end.
More than eight million Transit and Transit Custom vehicles have been built as the range grew from a single model to an entire family of commercial cargo vehicles. Lined up end-to-end, 50 years of Transit vans would circle the globe and a customer buys a new Transit every 180 seconds on average.
The evolution continues with the new option of a new six-speed automatic transmission for Transit and Transit Custom; and an enhanced all-wheel drive system and advanced SYNC 3 connectivity for Transit.
