Ford is the #1 selling light commercial brand in NZ!

For the first time in the company’s New Zealand history, Ford New Zealand has become the country’s best-selling light commercial brand in 2018. Bolstered by the arrival of the new Ford Transit with automatic transmission, Ford has taken pole position in the highly competitive and important segment.


The New Ford Transit has proven popular in New Zealand with 22 per cent year on year growth and New Zealand is not alone in its preference for the Transit; it’s currently the best selling cargo van in the world. Ford’s 2018 light commercial leadership was also buoyed by the fourth consecutive year of the Ford Ranger being the number one overall best-selling vehicle in the country and by the largest margin yet between it and its nearest competitor. “While the Ford Ranger’s overwhelming popularity continues, we’re also very happy about the positive response the new Ford Transit has enjoyed among commercial buyers and fleets that keep New Zealand working,” said Simon Rutherford, Managing Director Ford New Zealand. “We are very proud of the achievement and would like to thank all our customers for choosing Ford and all our dealer network for providing the fantastic customer service that has made it possible.”


To all of our Ford commercial customers, we extend a massive thank-you for being a part of this record setting year!
