This marks the debut of the next generation of Europe’s best-selling one-tonne van, aiming to assist small and medium businesses in cutting costs, improving efficiency, and boosting productivity.

“The Transit Custom is designed and developed in Europe, where it is the top-selling van and the best-selling vehicle overall in the UK, so it has a proven pedigree of being trusted by business owners to enhance their productivity,” says Doreen Mashinini, the general manager for marketing at Ford South Africa.

The Transit Custom has undergone a comprehensive redesign, focusing on enhancing load-carrying capacity, driver comfort, and overall performance. Built on a new platform, it boasts improved access, reduced weight, and aerodynamic efficiency compared to its predecessor.
