New Ford Transit Custom wins ‘International Van of the Year’

The all-new Ford Transit Custom has been named ‘International Van of the Year 2013’ at the Hanover IAA commercial vehicle show.

The Transit Custom garnered 117 out of a possible 133 points from the jury of 24 specialist journalists, more than the combined totals of the second-placed Dacia Dokker and third-placed Mercedes-Benz Citan.

It follows in the footsteps of the Transit (2001), Transit Connect (2003) and Transit (2007) to register a record-breaking fourth win for the Ford Transit family in the award's 22-year history.

The 2013 trophy was presented following the first press day of the Hanover show.

Ford is displaying the all-new Transit Custom at the show.

The Custom represents a completely new generation of 1-tonne commercial vehicles, alongside the all-new Transit and all-new Transit Connect.

Ford recently revealed it is harnessing its global platform strategy and completely redesigning its entire commercial vehicle line-up for Europe over the next two years.

The all-new Transit Custom is now starting to go on sale in major markets across Europe.
