Top 5 Commercial Vans in the UKBy Alan • Send This To A Friend
When you want to haul business goods and stock, you need a powerful yet comfortable vehicle that does not cost a packet every time you use it. For your business needs we have made the list of the 5 most popular and acclaimed commercial vans in the United Kingdom. This list is compiled from sources such as Perry’s top-10 list and the list of the top selling vans in UK in the year 2011.
As the best-selling van in Europe and the UK for many years in a row, the Ford Transit has dominated the market for years now. It also comes in other editions that are geared towards different types of users. One such edition is the Ford Transit Connect, which is a small van for businesses that do not need to haul large amount of goods at a time. However, if you want better mileage, coupled with solidly green credentials, you should choose the Ford Transit ECOnetic, which gives a fuel economy of 7.2 liters/100 km (with 189 g/km of CO2 emissions). The different models of Ford Transit together sold more than 70,000 units in the United Kingdom in the year 2011, making it the best-selling van in the country once again.
Compared to Ford Transit, which has been in market since 1965, the Sprinter is a relatively recent arrival. Launched only in 1995, it has since then built its reputation as a reliable and comfortable van with a high-quality engine. If you need the maximum amount of space in a smaller vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter could be the right solution for you.
The Vauxhall Vivaro is the country’s second most popular commercial van, trailing the Ford Transit in sales, but catching up fast. Vauxhall reported that its sales increased by 58% in 2011 when compared to the year 2011.
With a fuel economy of up to 48.5 mpg, the Citroen Berlingo panel van has attracted tens of thousands of buyers in the UK, making it Citroen’s largest-selling vehicle in that country. The Citroen Berlingo Multispace boasts of more than twenty storage spaces within easy reach of the passenger and the driver. The exact number varies from one model to another. Then there is storage space in large compartments even under the rear passengers’ footwell.
Built like a pickup truck, the Nissan Navara is every bit a van as much as it is a pickup truck. Its separate chassis and switchable four/two-wheel-drive has attracted a lot of buyers who want a powerful commercial van.
When you need to transport goods commercially, whether it is construction materials or packaged goods, you should go with any of these top 5 commercial vans. After buying the required van insurance and clearing other paperwork, you can use these vans to expand and grow your business without worrying about paying third-party delivery services.
