Default Ford to Unveil Fiesta Van in Paris

Quote:
At next month's Paris Motor Show, Ford will bring the panel van version of its Ford Fiesta to be unveiled to the public for the first time.
As with previous generations of the Fiesta Van, not much will change at the front of the vehicle and the same can be said for its overall body profile apart from full body panels replacing the rear passenger windows. Inside the rear seats will be gutted out to make extra room in the boot for a cargo space of 1000 liters.
Power under the hood is expected to range from 60hp up to 90hp and pricing is set to start at 11,070 for the German market.

A few years ago we would have thought that was a rolling car stereo.

Yes.

Any vehicle that's primarily designed to tow or haul stuff instead of people can be registered as a truck in a lot of Euro countries, and that means lower taxes. Business owners get a tax break on vehicles that are actually intended for commercial use (like this one), but not on Escalades and Cayennes, unless they weld up the windows and permantly remove the seats and belts.

I saw plenty of these vans when I was working in Dublin; pretty small but a lot of plumbers and the like don't really need a large van.

I see a few HHRs like this as well in the city.

When I read "van" I was expecting to see a tiny van based on the Fiesta platform, and not just a Fiesta with the rear windows removed. Still though, I do like it and could see it being useful to a certain small niche.



I was expecting to see a Fiesta-based version of ^^^
