It was the continental owner what was in the 70s, and average age new 67, with the average age is in the 50s now in the US, but I think I read it's in the 40s in China primarily due to high sales of MKC. But Lincoln has to offer new luxury performance models to get that age into the 30s.

imho in China it's more like 4ō ...in fact I have a vague recollection of one article saying late-30's...
becuz
the rich 'class' in China is mostly extremely-new/nouveau rich - as in, many more of the well-to-do are young - MUCH younger than in the U.S with old Boomers (like me) hanging on to control of the money (NOT like me) and their bought&paidfor congress critters

Ford in the Chinese market

In 3Q17, Fordís revenues from the Asia-Pacific region rose and made a positive contribution to its profit margins. However, the companyís market share in China fell to 4.2% in 3Q17 compared to 4.6% in 3Q16.

How Fordís Key Brands Performed in China in October 2017

Brand-wise China sales in October 2017

In October 2017, the Chinese vehicle sales (IYK) performance of Fordís key brands were as follows:

The companyís key brand, Changan Ford, saw its sales fall 11% YoY (year-over-year) to 73,551 vehicle units in October. This was also worse than Changan Ford brandsí September sales of 79,700 units. On a YTD (year-to-date) basis, the total Changan Ford brand sales fell ~14% YoY to 640,290 units.

Total Chinese sales of the JMC brand rose to 25,275 vehicle units in October 2017 with an ~6% YoY increase. In September, about 25,974 units of JMC brand were sold. JMCís Chinese sales have risen ~15% YoY to 236,537 units in 2017 so far.

About 5,514 vehicle units of the Lincoln model were sold in China last month, up 48%. The company has sold 45,729 vehicle units of Lincoln vehicles in China on a YTD basis, which reflected a solid increase of ~85% YoY.

In October 2017, Fordís imported vehicle sales also were firm in China with a rise of 13% YoY to 1,469 units. YTD sales of these imported vehicles rose 15% to 16,014 units.

Legacy automakers such as Ford, General Motors (GM), Toyota (TM), and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) primarily sell their vehicles in the Chinese market through their joint ventures with local Chinese automakers.

In the next part, weíll look at GMís China sales in October 2017.
