5877 Transit Connect sales translates to 65% market share in its small commercial van category. Ford's total share of the overall commercial van category increased from 44.2% in October 2014 to 52.8% in October 2015. 

Mercedes-Benz began marketing its new Metris van, something of a tweener-sized interloper that slots above the Transit Connect but below Mercedes-Benz's own Sprinter. 


Unfortunately, Mercedes-Benz is currently combining sales of its established Sprinter with the new Metris. Let's hope for a change.
