Ford continues to lead the market with more than 52,000 vans sold so far this year

DEMAND for new vans from businesses and tradespeople remains strong with September van sales up by 10.3% compared with September last year.

There were 43,066 new 63-plate vans registered during the month bringing the year-to-date total to 205,004 sales. This equates to an overall 9.6% increase on 2012.

SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes told Business Vans: “Encouragingly, van registration levels have stabilised, up around 10% in the month and year-to-date, after a variable year that reacted to model changes and changeable market conditions.”
