Our Take On The Commercial Van Sales Numbers

Commercial van sales as a whole were up in December over last year. For the entire year of 2018, sales were slightly down compared to 2017.

Leading the way in sales volume for the year and the month of December was the Ford Transit. The Transit also posted good YTD increases over last year with an 8.19 percent boost.

The Ram ProMaster is the most interesting of the Commercial Van group, though. Its sales may leave it far behind Ford in terms of volume, but the percentage increases over last year are impressive. The ProMaster saw a 74.73 percent increase in December over last year and a 15.11 percent increase YTD.

The Mercedes-Benz Metris van posted an excellent percentage increase for the month when compared to last year. The YTD number was also a respectable increase, too, though not as good as the ProMaster’s number.

While other vans, like the Chevrolet Express, Nissan NV, and Ram ProMaster City saw good increases in December over last years number, no other model came close to matching the Ram ProMaster’s YTD percentage increase.
