Most popular vans of 2019

Vauxhall unveils all-new Vivaro van

The most popular vans of 2019 have been revealed by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and The Van Insurer.

Registrations were up by 2.4% over the year, making it the most successful year for van registrations since records began.

Insurance price comparison company, The Van Insurer, processed 7% more van quotes last year than in 2018.

Ed Bevis, marketing manager at The Van Insurer, said: “The latest registration statistics reinforce the positive outlook we’ve gleaned from our own data.

“Here at The Van Insurer, we’ve enjoyed a bumper year for insurance quotes, which shows huge market appetite.

“We’re seeing both existing and new customers coming to The Van Insurer for their quotes.

“We’re looking forward to helping even more van drivers find the insurance options that best suit their needs for this year and beyond.”

SMMT figures show the market grew 7.8% in December, as the impact of regulatory changes eased and attractive offers on new models helped stimulate orders with only pickups experiencing a fall in demand.

Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said, “A healthy van market is good news for the industry, environment and exchequer and so the rise in 2019 registrations is very welcome.

"As we enter a new decade, however, we need this upward trend to continue if we are to address environmental concerns."
