Of the total sold in May, the Fiesta took 9,316 orders as the UK best-seller in May and the Ford Focus secured the number two slot with 7,522 sales. The Ford B-MAX maintained control of its segment with a 23.2% share of the small MPV market.
Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director, said: "May car sales continued the positive UK market trend with Ford’s leadership position strengthened by private customers helping to drive up our share of more profitable retail sales. The success of Ford’s best ever model range is epitomised by the Ford B-MAX achieving and maintaining segment leadership so soon after its introduction."
