Here in the UK, we love the Ford Transit Custom. It's officially the best-selling van of 2019, with 34,690 sold between January and August. It's in high demand here at Vanbase too, our used Ford Transit Customs are one of our most popular used vans!
So, what makes this particular panel van so popular? Could it be its versatility? The fact that it drives and feels so much like a car? Or could it be the fact that there's a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) model on the way?
Ford is set to become the first volume manufacturer to offer PHEV technology in its segment of the van market; the first generation of the Transit Custom PHEV will be capable of 31 miles of zero-emission driving, making it ideal for short journeys in low-emission zones. At the same time, it will use petrol fuel to travel up to 310 miles, boast a larger payload than battery-only electric vehicles and will be chargeable from a standard electricity supply.
We're excited for the day when the Ford Transit Custom PHEV filters through to the used van market. But until then, let's hear it for this hero van in its classic guise, which is one of our bestsellers here at Vanbase. Our Ford Transit Custom range is extensive and varied, so be sure to take a look if you're tempted by our Ultimate Guide to the Ford Transit Custom.
