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?

Renault Trafic – 103,933

Aside from the Renault badges, the Trafic is effectively the same as the Vauxhall Vivaro. It’s not a big surprise that the Vauxhall has proved to be more popular, though – the brand has a stronger image in Britain. The latest variant, like the latest Vivaro, has plenty of neat features to make life easier for modern van drivers.
