Since the introduction of the Ford Transit Connect van last August of 2009, more than 13,000 of the Ford Transit Connect vans have been sold. The Ford Transit Connect is becoming the vehicle of choice for a growing number of “mom and pop” business owners due to its fuel economy.  Business owners like the Transit Connect’s fuel economy of 22/25 mpg, its ample cargo space and generous payload capacity, which makes it an ideal choice for small businesses.

Yesterday was the National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day to honor small businesses, and Ford took the Ford Transit Connect vans directly to their doors for a tour.

“On this National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, Ford recognizes the many small businesses for their family history of hard work and passion,” said Len Deluca, director, Commercial Vehicles Marketing. “To make things a little more convenient for them, we’re bringing the Transit Connect to their locations. It helps them see immediately how the vehicle can help them run their daily business more efficiently.”
