It was great news for Ford as they won both the 2020 International Van of the Year (IVOTY) award and the 2020 International Pick-up Award (IPUA) at an event in Lyon, France, becoming the only manufacturer to do the double twice – the first time occurring in 2013.
The IVOTY jury praised the customer benefits offered by the electrified solutions of winning Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid and Transit Custom EcoBlue Hybrid models. Meanwhile, the enhanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel powertrain and advanced driver assistance technologies of the Ranger helped convince the IPUA jury to crown it best pick-up, the second time Ranger has received this accolade.
Hans Schep, General Manger, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe was at the ceremony in Lyon.
“We are very proud to have won not just one, but both of these international awards for our Transit Custom Hybrids and the Ranger” They not only show our strength and leadership as a trusted Commercial Vehicle brand, but are recognition that these great products are the backbone of business for our customers. Thanks to all the Ford teams involved in helping us secure the double honours. The awards are for you!”
