Ford celebrates production of 7-millionth Transit Van

Ford Motor Company announced the production of the seven-millionth Transit, the popular commercial van launched in 1965 in Europe and now being extended to 118 markets across six continents.
Lined up end to end, the seven-million Transits would stretch from London
to Sydney, Australia, and back again.

The milestone was celebrated at the official opening of a new Transit assembly plant in Nanchang, China, attended by Ford President and CEO Alan Mulally. The Jiangling Xiaolan facility is the result of a (US) $300-million investment by Ford's strategic partner Jiangling Motors Corp (JMC) and produces JMC-branded vehicles and Ford-branded vehicles for the growing Chinese market.

"The Ford Transit plays a significant role in the lives and jobs of millions of people," said Mulally. "From getting workers to a building site, to delivering important packages, or even rushing a patient to the hospital, people all over the world rely on Ford Transits to get the job done."
