Ford reveals all-new Fiesta Sport Van 2018 CV Show

Ford has unveiled the all-new Fiesta Sport Van alongside new connectivity technologies at the 2018 CV Show.

Joining the latest generation of Transit commercial vehicles – including the new Transit Custom, Transit Connect and Transit Courier models – the Fiesta Sport Van marks the company’s return to the urban hatchback van market with a new offering.

Ford also announced its first two connected commercial vehicles in Europe, introducing the new FordPass Connect on-board modem technology  to help deliver enhanced productivity and convenience for businesses.

Responding to strong customer demand, the Fiesta Sport Van will be available in autumn this year.

It is powered by a 1.0-litre EcoBoost with 125PS or a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine with 120PS.

Inside, the load compartment is capable of carrying approximately 1.0 cubic metre of cargo with a load length of almost 1.3 metres, and gross payload of around 500Kg. The load space features a composite and mesh full bulkhead, durable sidewall trim, and a tough rubber floor covering with four tie-down hooks.

Business customers can use the new FordPass Connect on-board modem for connectivity on the move.

Like the Fiesta passenger car, driver assistance technologies can be specified to enhance the Fiesta Sport Van’s comfort, convenience and safety, including Ford’s Pre‑Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System.

The comprehensive suite of technologies helps urban van drivers overcome typical daily challenges, such as Cross Traffic Alert to support easy and safe parking, plus Traffic Sign Recognition and Adjustable Speed Limiter to help avoid speeding fines.
