The folks at Ford Motor Company invited Conklyn’s Florist to participate in a test program for their new Transit Connect Commercial Vehicle last week.
An initial test drive of the prototype had us convinced that the Ford Transit Connect may just be what we’re looking for in a small utility delivery vehicle.
It’s a small van with a higher than average roof, a great turning radius, wonderful gas mileage and loads of options. It has gps mapping, hands free telephone and web/email clients built right into the dash.
Given our interest, Ford asked Conklyn’s to participate in a media day event where we could explain the value of this type of vehicle, in our business, to members of the automotive media. We took this as an opportunity to explain our needs to media experts and also to get their take on the vehicle and Ford commercial products in general.
I think we just might buy one when they go on the market later this year. http://www.fordvehicles.com/transitconnect/
