Volkswagen Transporter - 19,250 registered

The Transporter appears to have survived the emission scandal to retain its place in the top 10 selling vans, with Volkswagen registering almost 20,000 in 2015. This has been helped, in no small part, by the fact that the Transporter - both T5 and T6 - are unaffected by the scandal. 

The 2015 registration figures include the T6 that was launched last summer. The van is effectively an revised version of the T5, but gets new engines and updated running gear. The most efficient powertrain is the Euro 6 compliant 102PS 2.0-litre TDI, which will return a claimed 48mpg. As always, the Transporter will take three Euro pallets and carry a maximum payload of 1331kg.
