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.

Peugeot Partner – 105,202 on the road

Peugeot’s version of the Citroen Berlingo isn’t quite as popular, despite being the same mechanically. Like the Berlingo it’s small, easy-to-drive and town-friendly and it is a great choice for plumbers or electricians. It’s also a good basis for wheelchair accessible conversions and is sold as a passenger car.

As for why there are fewer on the road? We’re not sure, but since Peugeot and Citroen are both owned by PSA Group it’s unlikely the bean counters care too much. Neither the Partner nor the Berlingo is quite as good as the Ford Transit Courier or Connect – and judging by the figures, buyers know it.
