Ford van sales, comprised of the Ford Transit and Transit Connect, decreased in the United States, Canada, and Mexico while increasing in Argentina during the second quarter of 2022.

Sales Numbers - Ford Vans - Q2 2022 - USA

MODEL Q2 22 / Q2 21 Q2 22 Q2 21 YTD 22 / YTD 21 YTD 22 YTD 21
TRANSIT +1.46% 24,617 24,262 -19.12% 41,828 51,713
TRANSIT CONNECT -27.55% 6,750 9,317 -16.72% 14,107 16,940
E-SERIES -21.09% 5,336 6,762 -27.68% 12,537 17,335
TOTAL -9.02% 36,703 40,341 -20.37% 68,472 85,988

Cumulative deliveries of Ford vans in the United States decreased nine percent to 36,703 units in Q2 2022, comprised of:

  • 24,617 units of the Transit, an increase of one percent compared to 24,262 units sold in Q1 2021, and
  • 6,750 units of the Ford Transit Connect, a decrease of 28 percent compared to 9,317 units sold in Q2 2021, and
  • 5,336 units of the E-Series, a decrease of 21 percent compared to the 6,762 units sold in Q2 2021

The decrease in sales of the Ford Transit Connect and E-Series is likely due to constrained availability as a result of supply chain and delivery challenges. It’s also possible that Ford is allocating more supplies to the Transit, which was the only Ford van model to be in the green this quarter.

It’s also worth noting that the E-Series is currently only offered as a cutaway, and not as a complete vehicle.

Ford Van Details

Ford markets the following van lines across the Americas: Transit Connect, Transit, E-Transit, and E-Series, though it’s worth noting that not all models are available in all markets. The E-Series, Transit and Transit Connect are powered by gasoline internal combustion engines (ICE), while the E-Transit is a battery electric vehicle. Note that E-Transit sales are included in the Transit line item.

Riding on the Ford C1 platform, the Transit Connect is available in Cargo Van and Passenger Wagon body styles. It is currently built at the Ford Valencia Assembly Plant and is imported into the U.S. The Transit Connect range offers two naturally-aspirated, four-cylinder gasoline engines, both driving the front wheels:

  • 2.0L GDI I-4 rated at 162 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque
  • 2.5L iVCT I-4 rated at 169 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque

It’s worth noting that the Transit Connect will likely be replaced by the Transit Custom in North America.

Riding on a unique architecture simply known as the Ford Transit platform, the Transit is available in Cargo Van and Passenger Wagon body styles. It is currently built at the Ford Kansas City plant in Missouri for North American markets and offers two engine options, both driving the rear wheels:

The E-Transit, meanwhile, is an all-electric version of the Transit available in eight different configurations, including three roof height variations as well as three body length options, plus cutaway and chassis cab versions. Produced at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant alongside the ICE-powered Transit, the E-Transit offers one powertrain option – a single, lithium-ion battery pack sending power to a motor mounted at the rear axle. The setup is rated at 266 horsepower (198 kilowatts) and 317 pound-feet of torque.

Finally, the E-Series is available exclusively in cutaway form for upfitting purposes. It is powered by the Ford 7.3L Godzilla V8 gasoline engine, and is offered in two versions – a premium-output tune that’s standard or a fuel-economy tune that’s optional. The premium output version is rated at 350 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque, while the economy tune is rated at 300 horses and 425 pound-feet of torque. The E-Series is assembled at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, Ohio.
