Britain’s favourite commercial vehicles

Sales figures tell us which vans and commercial vehicles are flying out of dealerships – but that’s only half of the picture, since new models only make up a portion of the total number of vans on the road. So what about the total van ‘parc’ for the UK? Which vans are on the road in the highest numbers?

We requested figures from the SMMT and found out which commercial vehicles exist on the road with MoT and tax in the highest numbers, showing which vans and pick-ups really are the most popular with British drivers. Pictures are of the latest model, but numbers are for all examples, old or new.

Volkswagen Transporter – 237,092 on the road

There are fewer than half as many Transporters as Transits on the roads of the UK – despite the Transporter being a great medium van. It’s popular with private owners too, whether as a tool for moving bicycles and surf boards or as a camper – meaning there are plenty of older examples around.

Volkswagen gave the Transporter a thorough once over in 2015, resulting in the new T6. It’s more refined, better to drive and more comfortable than any Transporter before, so it should continue its run of popularity for the foreseeable future.
