100,000 vans were registered in the first three months of 2015
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders have confirmed that almost 100,000 vans were registered in the first three months of 2015 – 22.3% up on that period in 2014.
It said 108,456 commercial vehicles were registered in the quarter.
That is the highest number of vans and lorries sold since the trade body began compiling figures in 1987.
An SMMT spokesperson said: “Van registrations have risen consistently over the past two years, mainly as a result of steadily increasing business confidence and a range of attractive finance deals.”
Ford accounted for more than a fifth of van sales in the quarter, with the mid-sized Transit Custom the most popular on 12,627 sales.
