* An earlier version of this post did not include the new-to-market Ford Transit. We apologize for failing to include the new van, and the table now includes updated totals as well as the Transit’s figures.
In a mostly stagnant auto market, sales of commercial-oriented vans in the United States shot up 10.5% in June 2014 due in large part to the increases from two rival small vans.
The overall category added 3393 sales: Ford Transit Connect sales rose by 1041 units; Nissan NV200 sales increased by 773 units.
On the larger side of the sector, GM lost 732 Chevrolet Express sales on a year-over-year basis but added 2443 GMC Savana sales. Ram contributed 1131 ProMaster sales while losing more than 300 Cargo Van sales.
The smaller trio of vans – Transit Connect, NV200, Ram C/V – was up 28.3% to 6821 units. Sales of those vans have jumped 15.8% to 30,419 from 26,270 through the first half of 2014. The six larger products were up 7% to 28,817 in June; up 13% to 147,335 year-to-date.

These tables are now sortable, so you can rank commercial vans any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
