Double-Digit Growth Strengthens Ford Focus’ Lead as Best-Selling Vehicle Nameplate in the World


Ford Focus global registrations grew more than 16 percent year-over-year, widening its lead over its next competitor by more than 75,000, based on Ford’s analysis of the just-released and latest Polk global vehicle data for January to September 2013


Propelled by Ford’s growth in China, Focus registrations surpassed 303,000 units there to also make it the best-selling passenger car nameplate in China


Focus is driving Ford’s global growth and is joined by Fiesta to give Ford two of the top five best-selling nameplates in the world


The Ford Focus continues to be the best-selling vehicle nameplate in the world, based on Ford’s analysis of the just-released and latest Polk global vehicle registration data through the third quarter of 2013.


Led by strong growth in China, Focus global registrations from January through September 2013 grew to 856,587, a 16.1 percent year-over-year increase. China was the biggest contributor to the success with 303,481 registrations, representing an 85 percent year-over-year increase, according to Polk, which recently was acquired by IHS.

hummm......:toetap:so why a promotion for just Jan - September??? Ford knows what they sold in 4th quarter. Which could mean sales slide during 4th quarter allowing Corolla to take the lead, which also underscores the need for an updated, refreshed Focus, along with a hybrid and plug-in Energi model.

Either way, Well Done Ford!

I'll have a full listing of all vehicles sold in a couple months completed. But yes, F150 should be 3rd, maybe 4th.
That's just incredible! A fullsize truck sold for the most part in 1 market is 3rd or 4th GLOBALLY!!! And we're not talking a $15,000 entry-level vehicle here either! Bravo!
