According to statistics from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the UK New van market had a spectacular start in January 2019, with a year-on-year growth of 8.6 percent in new van registrations.

Last month saw small vans claim a whopping 31.7% of new van sales, whilst the usually-popular medium vans sold at a slight decline of 3.9%. On the other hand, sales of pick-ups increased by a massive 13.4% and large vans grew by 7.1% last month.


Best-selling New Vans of January 2019

Last year, the Ford Transit Custom and Ford Transit were the top-two best-selling vans in the UK of 2018. With sales of 3,015 Customs and 1,400 Transits in January 2019, there’s no doubt as to how they’ve stayed put in their first and second positions.

Amongst competitors, an additional two Ford vans made it into the running; the Ford Transit Connect made 5th place with an impressive 1,184 sales and the Ford Ranger stood in 7th place with a respective 1,029 sales in January 2019.
