Ford China reports growth of 37 per cent in April and 49 per cent for the year sales

Ford China sales continued to climb in April, selling 75,331 wholesale vehicles this month, an increase of 37 per cent compared to April 2012, bringing year-to-date sales to 261,927 wholesales, up 49 per cent from last year.

In its second full sales month, demand
remained strong for the all-new Ford Kuga, selling nearly 10,000 wholesale units for the second month in a row. As an SUV packed with clever technology, the Kuga is one of three high-quality, fuel-efficient SUVs Ford launched in China in the first quarter of 2013. With Kuga, EcoSport, Edge and Explorer all available in China today, Ford now competes in every segment of the country's growing SUV market.

The Ford Focus continued to be in high demand by Chinese customers, selling 30,673 wholesales in April, up 41 per cent compared to April 2012. Strong April performance for Focus brought year-to-date sales to 126,853 wholesales, up an incredible 114 per cent compared to last year.

Ford's passenger car joint-venture Changan Ford Automobile (CAF) sold 52,713 wholesales in April, up 55 per cent from April 2012. Year-to-date figures increased even more sharply with 180,719 wholesales sold, up 79 per cent compared to last year.

Ford's commercial vehicle investment in China Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC), also delivered strong sales, with April sales holding steady at 20,731 wholesales sold compared to 20,773 wholesales sold in April 2012. JMC's year-to-date sales grew 5 per cent, with 77,151 wholesales sold compared to 73,465 wholesales last year.
