Ford boosts sales during first part of 2012
05 July 2012
Ford has made an impressive start to the year with the latest figures showing that its sales had increased in the first part of 2012.
Published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the British manufacturer saw sales rise by 3.6 per cent compared to the same period in the past year. It outshone the rest of the car market which only reached 2.7 per cent.
The organisation noted that Ford's strong performance has been driven by its Fiesta model, which continues to be a favourite in the UK and remained the number one vehicle for British drivers over June.
Year-to-date sales of the model soared from 51,643 to 59,570 compared to sales over the same period a year ago.
Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain managing director, said: "Competition is more intense than ever in the UK market so I am delighted that we have succeeded in increasing our car sales and share through the first six months of 2012."
