Ford Is Only Brand to Top 2 Million Sales in the U.S. for 2012; Focus Remains Best-Selling Global Nameplate So Far This Year

DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Ford on track to sell 2.2 million U.S. vehicles in 2012, marking two straight years above the 2 million mark – the only brand to top 2 million U.S. sales since 2007
  • Focus remains the best-selling global vehicle nameplate, based on latest available Polk new vehicle registration data through September; Fiesta is best-selling global B-car
  • Ford is only automaker with three vehicle nameplates in the global top 10 – Focus at number 1, F-Series at number 4 and Fiesta at number 5 – based on latest available Polk new vehicle registration data through September
  • EcoBoost engines this year will power more than 520,000 Ford vehicles since their introduction in 2009 

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 engines."

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.  

Winning lineup
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."
