Ford claims position as top-selling brand in Europe

Ford claims position as top-selling brand in Europe

Ford has been making serious progress in global markets recently, with North American sales up 37 percent in the first quarter. While that’s good news for Ford, new reports indicate that Blue Oval is now experiencing serious success in Europe too. Ford has just become the number-one selling brand in the very competitive European market after March sales in the top 19 Euro countries beat the industry with a 11.5 percent sales gain. Ford’s sales boost during March has improved the company’s overall market share to 10.4 percent, up .4 percent over the same period in 2009.

The biggest reason for Ford’s sales dominance in Europe comes down to the new Fiesta. The Fiesta is immensely popular and has accounted for 68,000 of the company’s 192,500 sales for March, up 28.6 percent from March 2009. The Fiesta may see even larger sales volumes after finishing 2009 as the second highest-selling vehicle in Europe behind the Volkswagen Golf.
