Ford sold over 2.2 million vehicles in U.S in 2012

Ford Motor Co has announced that its main brand, Ford Vehicles has sold over 2.2 million vehicles in the United States in the year that just passed.

According to the U.S. based automaker, the Ford brand is the only one to top 2 million U.S. sales since 2007, when the U.S. auto industry has been hit hardly by the crisis, which finally conducted to the bankruptcy of General Motors and Chrysler Group LLC. This would be the second year when the company has surpassed the 2 million threshold, after 2011 when the American brand has sold 2.1 million vehicles – cars and trucks in the United States.

Globally Ford is on track to become the best-selling global nameplate with its Focus (737,856 Focus vehicles sold through September), while the new Fiesta is on track to become the best-selling global B segment vehicle for 2012 (560,061 Fiesta vehicles sold through September).

“Focus and Fiesta represent the best of our One Ford plan,” said Jim Farley, Ford’s executive vice president, Global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln.

2012 was the third year when the auto industry saw strong sales ( 2012 by double digits ), even if the American economy is not doing very well. However the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent in September, the lowest level since 2007.

Earlier in 2012 Ford announced that it expects to lose market share in US because the company cannot build enough vehicles to satisfy customer demand. According to the latest Polk global industry data, Ford is the only brand to have three of the top 10 best-selling vehicles worldwide.

Important facts:
- on track to sell 2.2 million U.S. vehicles in 2012
- Focus, the bestselling global vehicle
- Fiesta bestselling B segment global vehicle
- the only automaker with three vehicle in the global top 10 (Polk)
