You may well have heard the expression ‘commercial van’ but what does this imply and what sort of vehicles are classed as one. Firstly a commercial vehicle can be a type of vehicle that is used for transporting and moving goods or passengers from A to B. Referring to what the European Union class as a commercial vehicle would mean that any vehicle that is made and equipped to carry either cargo or equipment that is used for providing a service is classed as a commercial van.
Definitions can differ around the world, for example in America a vehicle is only classed as commercial once it has been either titled or registered to a company. Within the UK the most popular commercial vehicle is the Transit van by the Ford Motor Company along with their pickup truck the Ford Ranger. Here is the Ford Ranger in action!
