Ford was also the beneficiary of the first ever Euro NCAP Advanced rewards for technology available on a commercial vehicle.
“Transit Custom redefines safety in its sector,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “We’ve combined a high strength steel structure, a pedestrian-friendly front end and segment-leading safety technologies to create a van that provides the best protection available – something fleet customers and owner operators will appreciate.”
“With such good protection for its occupants and also for pedestrians, the Ford Transit Custom is undoubtedly setting a high standard,” said Michiel van Ratingen, secretary general, Euro NCAP. “Testing vehicles in this segment is a new departure for Euro NCAP and it is pleasing that consumers wishing to purchase five-star vehicles of this size can now do so.”
