On April 18, Ford Germany announced that its commercial vehicle division, Ford Pro, recorded record sales with 19,687 new light commercial vehicles sold during the first 3 months of 2024, representing a market share of 14.4%, the highest Since 1990.

March was the best month for the OEM, with 8,632 units sold and a market share of 16.5%, positioning Ford Pro in second place in sales of light commercial vehicles in Germany.

The new Transit and Tourneo Custom model series have been especially successful, with 4,391 new registrations in the first three months of the year.

“The most important ingredient in Ford Pro's recipe for success is, without a doubt, our fleet of commercial vehicles, which has been completely renewed over the last year and a half”, commented Claudia Vogt, director of Ford Pro for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
