The first all-new Ford Transit Custom sold in the UK has been put to work by a high-tech window cleaning service.
Andrew Wilkinson, owner of H2O Cleaning Contractors in Lincoln, bought – and drove away the same day – a Ford Transit Custom from Evans Halshaw Ford dealership, making him the first customer to take delivery of Ford’s award-winning van.
Wilkinson said: “I am very impressed with how the Ford Transit Custom has been engineered and the large payload it can carry, meeting our need to carry a half-tonne water tank in the back. It drives more like a car than a van and the fuel economy I’m getting is excellent.”
The Transit Custom is the first of several Ford commercial vehicle models to be introduced that will form a whole new line-up by 2014.
It features a number of new loadspace features such as the load-through hatch in the bulkhead for extra-long items, and the integrated roof rack which can be folded away when not in use.
The driver also benefits from the latest Ford technologies such as Lane Keeping Aid and Ford SYNC.
