Ford Motor Company US sales up 18 per cent

Ford's April sales climbed 18 per cent with gains across the portfolio - with cars up 21 per cent, utilities up 16 per cent, and trucks up 16 per cent. Retail sales were up 27 per cent.

"We are working harder than ever to keep pace with record demand for our all-new, fuel-efficient
Fusion and Escape - with sales growth particularly strong on the coasts," said Ken Czubay, Ford Vice-President, US Marketing, Sales and Service. "F-Series pickups also continue to build on their momentum as the housing and construction industries rebound."

Fusion continues its strong sales run with best-ever April sales results of 26,722 vehicles, a 24 per cent increase over record year-ago April levels. The strongest retail sales increases for Fusion continue to come from the western and southeastern US - with the sales in the West doubling in April and the Southeast up 70 per cent.

Escape also had its strongest April sales since its launch 13 years ago, reporting a 52 per cent increase with 25,826 vehicles sold.

Sales of America's best-selling pickup, the Ford F-series increased 24 per cent, with 59,030 pickups sold. This represents F-series best April sales results since 2006. It also is the 21st straight monthly sales increase for F-series - with sales up 19 per cent year to date.

In April, Lincoln sales increased 21 per cent. The new Lincoln MKZ established an all-time monthly sales record, with 4,012 vehicles sold for the month - breaking the 4,000 vehicle mark for the first time ever.
