The Ford Transit Connect is a compact panel van developed by Ford Europe and derived from the Ford Focus. The first generation was designed by Peter Horburyand introduced in 2002 to replace the older Ford Escort and Fiesta-based Courier van ranges, which had ceased production in the same year. It has been imported to the North American market since the 2010 model year. In North America, the Transit Connect does not have a direct predecessor; the closest vehicle to its size was the standard-length Ford Aerostar cargo van, which ceased production in 1997.
The Ford Tourneo Connect, a leisure activity vehicle, is a Transit Connect with side windows and rear seats. All Transit Connects bound for the United States are imported in this configuration to avoid the 25% "chicken tax" on imported light trucks. In 2013, US Customs told Ford that they must stop this practice of importing vans disguised as passenger cars.
- At the 2010 LA Auto Show, Ford launched its civilian version of the transit connect called the XLT Premium Wagon.

- Beginning late 2010, Ford will start production on an Electric version of the Transit Connect. Powered by advanced lithium-ion battery technology, the zero-emissions vehicle can be recharged using either 240-volt or standard 120-volt power outlets. Being an eco-minded vehicle, performance is not blistering however a top speed of 121km/h (75mph) is adequate for its purpose as an urban commercial transporter. A full battery charge is claimed by Ford to yield a 129km (80 miles) range. Other specifications include 135 cubic feet (3.8 cubic metres) of cargo volume with 59.1 inches (150cm) of floor-to-ceiling load height so its utilitarian raison d'etre remains intact, power steering, a 39-foot (99cm) curb-to-curb turning circle and split rear cargo doors that open at a standard 180 degrees, or the optionally available 255 degrees.
