As an electrician, your van is your office and you need it to be comfortable, safe and economical.

So where will I fit all my tools? I hear you ask! The Transit Connect has a loadspace volume of 2.6 metres cubed on the L1 version, this increases to 3.2 metres cubed on the L2 version… Looks can be deceiving! This loadspace means transportation of all your vital pliers, drills, wire cutters and saws is comfortable. However with this equipment being potentially dangerous, it is important that it is transported safely. The Ford Transit Connect is spacious enough for you to insert racking and shelves if you require, so that your van becomes your office. Tie down hooks and side-mounting points also help with the safe transfer of your vital equipment to the job location.
Require slightly more luxury and comfort on your daily commute? The Ford Transit Connect Limited models are fitted with features as standard, such as: air conditioning, rear parking sensors and cruise control.
