Ford Transit Custom Was UK’s Best Selling Vehicle Of 2021

Last year, the Ford Fiesta and the Ford Transit Custom / Tourneo Custom finished one and two on the UK’s best-selling vehicles list, but the times are certainly changing. The results for 2021 are in, and the Ford Transit Custom has taken over the top spot as Britain’s best-selling vehicle, but that wasn’t all the good news for The Blue Oval. Ford also retained its spot as the UK’s top-selling brand, as well as the commercial vehicle sales leader to boot.

“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,” said Lisa Brankin, Ford of Britain and Ireland managing director. “Ford prioritized 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.”

Buyers scooped up a little over 53,000 Ford Transit Custom models in 2021, while 3,750 purchased a Tourneo Custom. Transit Custom sales rose 10 percent over last year, while Ford’s total commercial vehicle range accounted for one in every three vans.

Ford has greatly expanded its Transit Custom range over the last couple of years, adding more off-road capable Trail and Active variants,  as well as the same rugged trims for the Transit Custom Nugget camper. Meanwhile, as Ford Authority reported last March, a Transit Custom EV has already been confirmed for production in the first half of 2023 and will be built alongside all other variants by Ford Otosan – Ford’s joint venture – at the Ford Otosan Assembly Plant.
