DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 30, 2012 – The Ford brand is on track to top 2
million U.S. vehicle sales in 2012 for the second straight year – the
only auto brand to do so in America this year.
In addition, the Ford Focus is on track to become this year's
best-selling global nameplate, while the Ford Fiesta is on pace to be
this year's best-selling global B-Car, giving Ford the best-selling B
and C-Car in the world, based on the latest Polk global industry data
– through September.
Global Focus new registrations totaled 737,856 through September,
making it the world's number-one selling vehicle nameplate. Fiesta new
vehicle registrations totaled 560,061 for the same period, making it
the world's best-selling B-Car, according to Polk.
"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. "In just three years, Ford has
transformed our global small car lineup and started winning over
customers worldwide with vehicles that are not only fun-to-drive but
also fuel-efficient – largely thanks to our award-winning EcoBoost
Ford is on track to sell more than 520,000 EcoBoost-powered vehicles
by year-end since the engine's introduction in 2009. Already available
in Europe in Fiesta, Ford's new 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder engine arrives
late next year in the new Fiesta in the U.S.
Ford is the only brand to have three of the top 10 best-selling
vehicles worldwide, through September 2012, the most recent reporting
of all markets globally by Polk.
In addition to Focus at No. 1 and Fiesta at No. 5, F-Series is the
fourth best-selling global nameplate at 576,339 vehicles, according to
Polk global new vehicle registration data.
"Customers around the world are rewarding Ford for investing in
fuel-efficient new vehicles, from our fun-to-drive EcoBoost-powered
small cars to our hard-working, capable F-Series pickups," Farley
said. "No other automaker in the world shares Ford's extensive
volume or range of EcoBoost engines – from the 1.0-liter that drives
our small cars to the 3.5-liter that has been a winner with truck and
large crossover owners around the globe."
