PARIS, France – Ford Transit Connect has been crowned Van of the Year 2014 by French Magazine L’argus.
It is the fourth time Ford has won L’argus magazine’s prestigious award Ford after Transit triumphed in 1994 and 2003, followed by Transit Custom last year. A jury of 11 journalists and professionals praised Transit Connect for its comfort, equipment levels and safety.
"To win this award for the second consecutive year represents the best reward for our teams," said Jean -Luc Gerard, president and CEO of Ford France. "Next year we will launch the Courier Transit and Transit in France so we will still be in contention for the title of the Van of the Year 2015."
The Transit Connect has been available to order in France since the summer and the first customers will take delivery early next year.
The award was given to Philippe Flon, CV and Fleet Sales Manager
