The van that brakes for pedestrians

April 27, 2016

Transit vans are one of the most common sights on our roads. They’ve outsold all other vans for 50 years – and now we’ve added some new technology.

Our new Transit and Transit Custom use camera and radar to detect people in the road ahead and – if the driver does not respond to warning sounds and displays – automatically applies the brakes.

We are also launching a system that counters the effects of side-winds, and a new diesel engine that offers improved fuel efficiency.
Both vans are now on display at The Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham.
