Ford Transit Custom is Britain’s second best-selling vehicle in October

The Ford Transit Custom was Britain’s second best-selling vehicle among all vehicles sold in October, only outsold by the Ford Fiesta.

The Transit Custom range powered Ford’s share of the commercial vehicle market to 33.2 percent, up nearly two percentage points from October last year. The Transit Custom (including the Tourneo Custom people carrier) is now the third top-selling vehicle range in Britain for the year to date.

With nearly 52,000 sold so far this year, Ford says the Transit Custom range is on-track to deliver the strongest sales result since the launch of the Custom range in 2013.

Ford says the Transit Custom range is also changing customers’ perceptions in the van segment, with white now being the colour of choice for less than 45 per cent of sales, and with variations of silver and grey – and ‘fun’ colours like Orange Glow which was introduced this year – growing in popularity.

Overall, Ford was no.1 for total vehicle sales, passenger and commercial vehicle sales, and higher margin retail sales in October.
