New Focus Drives Ford US Sales Increase
“Sales momentum built as February unfolded, with higher fuel prices driving consumer demand for more fuel-efficient vehicles in the second half of the month,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.
“Customers are recognizing Ford for investing in new cars, utilities and trucks with strong fuel economy, especially Focus, Escape and EcoBoost-powered vehicles,” Czubay adds.
Ford Motor Company also announced a new production plan to build 730,000 vehicles in the second quarter of 2012, up 3 percent (20,000 vehicles) compared with the second quarter 2011. The outlook for the first quarter has remained untouched.
