Ford Transit, Transit Connect Popular with Small Business Owners
Ford says that the results of a survey co-conducted with Manta reveal that it is imperative for vehicles used by owners of small businesses to also serve the functions required of a family-oriented passenger vehicle. This, of course, indicates that Ford’s new Transit Connect is among the smartest choices for customers looking to expand their business fleets with savvy multi-purpose vehicles.
“Dual use was one of the key considerations in the design of Ford Transit Connect,” says Yaro Hetman, Ford brand manager for Transit, Transit Connect, and E-Series. “Customers appreciate the seats fold down for deliveries during the week and the vehicle works well as a family van on weekends.”
According to the survey, around 58% of the 1,202 respondents use their business vehicles for personal and professional reasons in varying degrees. Further, 13% of small business owners typically drive vans, 25% drive trucks, 18% drive SUVs, and 23% drive cars.
The Transit is America’s best-selling commercial van and the F-Series is the country’s best-selling truck, so it’s entirely plausible that Ford could substantiate its claim that its vehicles “own work.”
