Ford has scooped three prestigious Fleet News Awards at a ceremony in London.

Focus was named Best Lower Medium Car, Transit Connect was Best Van Under 2.1 Tonnes and the company won the new Environmental Manufacturer of the Year title.

A panel of 12 industry judges described the Focus as "the benchmark for excellence in its class," and said Transit Connect "redefined the market for small vans. As a fleet workhorse there is nothing better."

In awarding Ford the Environmental Manufacturer of the Year the judges said the company was leading the way in trying to minimize the impact of its commercial activities on the environment.

Ford products also won four Highly Commended awards. Best Van 2.1-2.8 Tonnes for Transit front-wheel drive; Best Van 2.8-3.5 Tonnes for Transit rear-wheel drive; Best MPV for Galaxy; and Best Upper Medium Car for Mondeo.
