Through an open and competitive RFP process, Canada Post has selected the Ford Transit Connect to begin replacing its aging national fleet of vehicles and modernize its business. In total this year, 1,175 Ford Transit Connect vans will be purchased—the largest fleet sale of Ford Transit COnnect vehicles in Canada to date.
Purpose-built for business owners, the Ford Transit Connect offers a fuel-efficient alternative to full-size commercial vans. With its standard 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission, Transit Connect delivers fuel economy of 30 mpg city, 36 mpg highway. Environmental impact, employee health and safety requirements, performance, capacity and total lifecycle costs (purchase, fuel consumption and maintenance) were among the key requirements for Canada Post.
The Ford Transit Connect is used by a number of Post Offices around the world and is well-suited for Canadian roads and winters.
