Best-selling vans in the UK: electric van sales up in SeptemberImage 1 of 22

The number of new vans joining the UK’s roads increased by 28.1% in September compared with the same month last year, official figures have revealed.

A total of 44,760 new vans were registered over the course of the month, according to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Large vans proved most popular once again, with 29,150 hitting the road – 13.0% more than last September – whereas small van sales dropped by 13.4%, to just 880.

That may be explained by the steep 89.0% rise in sales of medium vans, from 3748 last September to 7085 last month. This suggests that some buyers are favouring versatile all-rounders like the ever-popular Ford Transit Custom over smaller models or costlier large vans.
