The Ford Authority Take

Ford Transit sales continued to lead their segment during the first quarter of 2022, outselling all rivals and accounting for the lion’s share of the segment. The next best-selling offering, Ram’s ProMaster, sold roughly 60 percent as many units as the Transit.

Ford Transit sales have continued to face negative impacts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing microchip shortage. These impacts can be seen in the year-to-date results, which are down 19 percent. Even so, the Transit continues to head the segment during the quarter, even managing to post an increase in share, while also outpacing the segment average.

It’s also worth noting that sales of the new, all-electric E-Transit now total 3,008 units during the first six months of the year. As such, the new E-Transit is adding incremental sales to the Transit’s already-healthy performance.

There’s better news on the horizon, as Ford will soon expand the Transit range to include the upcoming Transit Trail model. After initially reporting that the Ford Transit Trail could be coming to the U.S., Ford Authority spies then spotted a prototype of the rugged van testing in Metro Detroit. Originally revealed for the European market back in June of 2020, the Transit Trail is a more rugged, off-road focused variant of FoMoCo’s best-seller.

Going forward, we expect the Transit to continue leading the segment, both in terms of sales and market share, despite ongoing attempts by the competition to challenge its leadership. It is also worth noting that Nissan has withdrawn from the full-size van segment, giving Ford the opportunity to take over the Japanese automaker’s (relatively small) customer base and associated sales volume.

    It’s great that transit sales are doing well but how about delivering? We’ve been waiting 11 months for ours. It’s been sitting in a lot waiting a microchip for months
