Celebrating a tremendous success of the family in its stronghold, the British branch of the global brand has issued a special edition 2010 Ford Transit SportVan commercial vehicle.
Looking a bit like a fire truck with its bright red paint with a pair of white stripes, the commercial van offers the usual combination of visual sportiness of its exterior with a bit disappointingly anemic diesel engine. However, if you don’t plan to take the van to Silverstone (you don’t, do you?), the vehicle still seems like a nice choice thanks to numerous interior and exterior enhancements that come as a part of the package.
The new breed of electric vehicles is on offensive. As Ford UK tries to sell some more commercial vans by offering them in sporty colors, the Rochester-based company Amp Electric Vehicles offers a Smith Ampere EV conversion program that turns a normal oil-burner into a futuristic, zero emission electric vehicle.
Ford UK plans to sell 300 limited edition 2008 Ford Transit Connect SportVans on the local market.
