The Ford Transit Custom range was the top-selling commercial vehicle in Ireland last year, while it was also the UK’s top-selling vehicle among both passenger and commercial vehicles in 2021.

A total of 2,195 units of the Ford Transit Custom were sold in Ireland last year, according to SIMI figures. The Transit Van also sold 2,085 units here in 2021, making it the third best selling LCV for the year.

In the UK, 53,394 Ford Transit Custom units were sold last year, while the Transit Van sold 34,293 units, according to SMMT figures. A further 3,750 customers bought the Ford Tourneo Custom people carrier in the UK in 2021.

Lisa Brankin, Ford of Britain and Ireland managing director said: “The army of Ford Transit drivers, and the companies employing them, depend on their vehicles – just as homes, businesses and other customers depend on their deliveries.

“Ford prioritised vehicle supply in a difficult year, with the pandemic ongoing and semiconductor shortages affecting the entire automotive industry, to grow commercial vehicle sales and meet the demand and loyalty to the Transit brand.”
