Ford reveals all-new Fiesta Sport Van
Ford today unveiled the all-new Fiesta Sport Van and new connectivity technologies that will strengthen the company’s market leading position in the commercial vehicle market at the 2018 CV Show.
Joining the latest generation of Ford Transit commercial vehicles – including the new Transit Custom, Transit Connect and Transit Courier models – the Fiesta Sport Van marks the company’s return to the urban hatchback van market with a class-leading new offering.
Ford also announced its first two connected commercial vehicles in Europe, introducing the new FordPass Connect on-board modem technology to the new Transit Connect and Fiesta Sport Van, to help deliver enhanced productivity and convenience for businesses.
Further highlights at the CV Show include innovative solutions for urban transportation with a Transit Custom plug-in hybrid from the London fleet trial, and a concept for more efficient last-mile delivery. Ford also revealed the distinctive new Ranger Wildtrak X model.
“With the all-new Fiesta Sport Van joining three new Transit models, the Ford stand in Birmingham is packed with new metal,” said Hans Schep, Ford European general commercial vehicle manager. “Add in innovative connectivity and mobility solutions, and you can see how determined we are to support our customers – both now and in the future.”
Ford has been the top-selling commercial vehicle brand in Europe for the past three years, and has consolidated its leadership position so far in 2018, with 93,200 sold year to date through the end of March, marking the highest first quarter for Ford commercial vehicle sales since 1993.
The new model, in an eye-catching Sport series, is powered by a 1.0-litre EcoBoost with 125PS and 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine with 120PS.
