Full-size van sales are up 23 percent since Ford introduced the Transit in June 2014. The Ford Transit is responsible for 78 percent of that growth an dis the best selling cargo van in the world.
Ford has been working closely with third party vendors to drive this growth and explore new opportunities for van conversion concepts. The Ford Transit is offered in a variety of styles to help customers find the right van with high, medium or low roof variants as well as chassis cab and cutaway configurations to meet their specific conversion needs.
Ford vans have been converted to meet a wide variety of recreational and professional applications. Vehicles ranging from ambulances and traveling billboards to delivery vehicles and luxurious conversion vans have been built, debuted and are in use now. Thirty-five of these practical conversion vans were put on display at Ford headquarters in Michigan earlier this month to showcase the many applications of these versatile vehicles.
“Commercial vans have a ripple economic effect,” explained Tim Stoehr, Ford general fleet marketing manager. “Because commercial customers actually use vans as equipment for their business, a Transit or Transit Connect can generate profits at multiple levels – for Ford, its dealers, upfitters and end-user customers.”
Amanda McTavish, marketing director for upfitting specialists Nor-Cal Vans, said her company has been able to expand into new markets and offer more options since Ford Transit debuted. “Our company size has doubled – both in vehicles produced and revenues created,” she said.
