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.

Citroen Berlingo – 150,699 on the road

Another long-running van, the Berlingo is fairly small. It’s a good choice of urban van and suits electricians or plumbers, who tend to carry tools and smaller items rather than large, bulky, heavy equipment. The first generation model arrived in the mid-1990s and was replaced with the current van in 2008.

It’s a comfortable van with car-derived suspension and it’s very easy to drive. The current model is available in two lengths to suit differing needs, plus there is a choice of petrol or diesel power. The Berlingo also forms the basis for a popular MPV called the Berlingo Multispace.
