The Ford Transit van was the top selling van in the UK according to figures published by the SMMT’s motorparc census. The Transit was first introduced in 1965 and approximately six million vehicles have been produced since its launch.
The Transit has been the best selling light commercial vehicle in Europe for over 40 years. In some countries, the term “Transit” has passed into common use as a generic term to describe any light panel van in the Transit size category.
Other top selling vans in the UK include Mercedes Sprinter, Vauxhall Vivaro and VW Transporter.
