It’s been an impressive start to the UK new van market in 2020 with van sales up 2.8% in January and February 2020 in comparison with the same period in 2019. Our team of new van experts at Vansdirect take a look at the 10 best-selling new vans of February 2020.

Statistics released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) have shown an impressive start to 2020 for the UK new van market in 2020, despite a slight drop in registrations of 2% in February 2020 in comparison with the same period in 2019. 14,103 new vans were sold in February 2020, compared with 14,384 in February 2019.

Medium vans for sale bucked the trend last month showing a growth of 9.3% over figures in February 2019, whilst small vans for sale, pickups for sale and large vans for sale all declined over the same period by 11.1%, 10.1% and 2.8% respectively.
SMMT Chief Executive looked ahead to a busy month in March:

”It is important to remember that February is usually a quiet month ahead of the March plate change. However, the dip in registrations is concerning at a time when fleet renewal is more important than ever. The upcoming Budget is an opportunity for government to bolster confidence in the market with supportive fiscal measures to encourage operators to invest in their fleets, because getting more of the latest, cleanest models onto our roads is good for business and the environment.”
