Yeah, that's the problem. I can't think of any business niche that would buy this thing. It's too small for most commercial US use. It's not going to replace the US Mail's Grumman LLVs (because it's not made in the US). Some florists who currently use minivans might buy it, but most of them long ago settled on E-series vans or have converted to the Sprinter. The big delivery companies probably won't buy it, with the possible exception of UPS (who experiments with small vehicles for some reason) as it is too small for their efficiency models.edit - also, who is this aimed at? Is it for the 'car with blacked out windows and removed rear seats' market? To compete against pickups? Or against fullsize vans such as the aforementioned Sprinters? I can't see it going after any of those...:/
And, since this is a cargo-only variant, the people who want a minivan (Ford has none at the moment) to carry people won't buy it either.
So, basically, it has no significant US market. Why bother?
