Ford’s New Fiesta Delivers As A Panel Van

Looking at a new Fiesta, but want to use it to haul (small) things instead of people? Ford can hook you up with the new Fiesta Van.

Unveiled today at the Commercial Vehicle show in Birmingham, England, the new Fiesta Van does away with the rear seats and rear windows. All the better for work duty, without the need for a larger cargo van.

Right-Sized For Small Jobs

Inside its three-door form, the Fiesta Van can cary about one cubic meter (35 cubic feet) of cargo with a payload capacity of around 500 kilograms (1,102 pounds). It has a nearly 1.3-meter- (4.3-foot-) long load floor covered in rubber with four tie-town hooks, a composite and mesh bulkhead, and durable sidewalls.

The Blue Oval will offer the little panel van with a choice of three engines. There’s a 1.1-liter inline-three rated at 85 ps (84 hp/62 kW), a 1.0-liter EcoBoost turbo good for 125 ps (123 hp/92 kW), and a 1.5-liter diesel available with either 85 ps (84 hp/62 kW) or 120 ps (118 hp/88 kW). Buyers can even get it with the latest Sync 3 infotainment system and an eight-inch touchscreen display. A full range of driver-assistance systems can be specified as well. And there’s even a Sport model with a more aggressive-looking treatment, 18-inch wheels, and a sportier cockpit, too.

Ford opens the order books for the new Fiesta Van this season, and will begin delivering to customers and dealers in the fall. We wouldn’t count on the American automaker offering it in its home market, though. So customers in the US will just have to make do with the (relatively) larger Transit Connect and the even bigger full-size Transit van.

    What’s the point of covering the rear windows? It will haul the same amount whether the windows are there or not, rather it just creates a huge blind spot.

      Probably more to do with specification required to be classified as a commercial van (like load area retention tolerences during braking, or maybe to just simply qualify for tax breaks on vans).

        Good to know, I did not know that.

        In the Netherlands, by removing the rear seats, a vehicle could be classified as a “van”, which qualified the vehicle for a lower tax bracket (griskenteken). The Dutch -of course- exploited this loop hole. As a result, quite a number of nice Golf GTi “vans” could be seen on the streets 😀

    Look, this site is my favorite destination for cars on the web. This post though is crap. A Fiesta with red vinyl on the windows? Up there with the poor teen who got t-boned by a Lexus a week ago.
