    In Puławy, Poland, we mainly have vans with hearse fittings. It's mainly 2nd gen Mercedes Vitos, but there's also a 2nd gen Fiat Scudo in here.


    When it comes to more traditional hearses, we have a Mercedes-Benz W210, as well as a VW Transporter T5 with a custom hearse body.


    Unfortunately, the more unusual hearses, like an FSO Polonez and a 90s Cadillac Fleetwood, seem to have been taken out of service.

    Cadillac XTSs and STSs are pretty common in the Northeast and I would assume the US in general.

    Probably going to be almost all of them soon because of coronavirus... In all seriousness though I haven't seen one in years so not sure. The last one I recall seeing was an older Cadillac.

    Here in the urban East Coast of the USA, it's just new Caddys and your occasional Fleetwood or Lincoln from 2012 that everyone forgot.

    Mostly new Cadillacs and Lincolns. One funeral home near me has a motorcycle with a trailer.

    here in west misshigan its mostly just CTS' and the occasional grand caravan :confused: due to some insider knowledge you may not believe that a new hearse costs around 175k. also i could imagine a cts-v hearse and that would be bonkers

    in australia, the first response vehicles are usually merc vans, though I do recall seeing a 1st gen ford territory at a local funeral home a few years ago.
    as for hearses themselves, there's still plenty of BF fairlanes an WM statesmans still going around, i can't say i've seen any others other than maybe a mercedes S class.

    Here in the Philippines, the newer ones are mainly Hyundai Starex, while older (from the 2000's) hearses that are still being used are primarily Chevrolet Suburban or Lincoln Town Car.

    Normally in China we have a convoy that start with a light-duty truck (for example, a JAC)or a minivan(for example, a Buick GL8),carried with flowers, bone ashes and a picture of the man/woman who passed away in order to remember he/she. the rest of the convoy are the family member's private cars.
