The new Ford Transit has won the prestigious Continental Irish Van of the Year 2015 award, writes Padraic Deane.
In determining the result, the Irish Motoring Writers’ Assocation van jury vote based their vote on a range of criteria, including value-for-money, innovation, functionality, reliability, versatility and lasting residual value. And as has been my practice, I can confirm that I voted the new Ford Transit as my number one choice.
The award was presented by Michael Moroney (motoring correspondent of the Farmers Journal ), chairman of the IMWA van Jury to Ciaran McMahon, managing director designate of Ford Ireland.
Tom Dennigan of the award sponsor Continental Tyres Ireland said: “The Ford Transit is a worthy winner of the Irish Van of the Year title, ideally suited to the needs of Ireland’s commercial vehicle operators. In the current resurgent commercial vehicle market, we are sure that the award will contribute in no small way to the ongoing success of the Transit.”
The results for the Continental Irish Van of the Year Awards 2015 were independently reviewed for the Irish Motoring Writers Association by Ernst and Young, Dublin.
