8 Million Transits

Since the first Transit left the production line in 1965, around 8 million Transit and Transit Custom vehicles have been produced. If you line up these Transits end-to-end they would circle the globe. On average one Transit is purchased every 180 seconds.

“The Ford Transit has touched the lives of most of us," said Mark Ovenden, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain. “From house moves to moving people, the Ford Transit is an essential tool to get the job done. It has become a mobile office or workshop for some – and loved by us all."
