Purpose-designed 'baby' Transit launched at Amsterdam show

FORD has unveiled first pictures of the all new 'baby' Transit, to be called Transit Connect. It was revealed this week at the Amsterdam Commercial Vehicle Show.

The new model (pictured), to be launched in the autumn, is based on a new platform and has been purpose-designed as a small van. It is intended to reflect the benefits of the Transit in a smaller package and will come in a short wheelbase version, aimed at the light commercial vehicle market and a long wheelbase high-roof model designed for the sub-one-tonne sector.

The short wheelbase version will achieve a class first by handling two Euro pallets.
