Saab and Chevy need to do their homework. Cadillac and Corvette seem to be growing, though I am sure there needs alot to be done.
Meanwhile, perhaps Ford needs some help too. Any Idea why sales are down for Ford?

The Ford brand is not down, Feb 08 is .6% up over Feb 07. It seems like their decline is mostly due to LR and Jag, down 12.1 and 25.6%. Hopefully once the new XF catches on Jag will finally show some positive sales numbers.

For the month the Ford brand is up but for the year is down 2.9 but this is the whole company but looking at Toyota who is down 8.4 for the year looking at Fords numbers they are not that bad:D , but when LR and Jag are out this means Ford will be down in the sales ladder I dont like it, EU is the place where the Blue Oval is kicking some butt with their nice products that I hope will start arriving on our coasts pretty soon:D

maybe - just mentally/no-calculator looking at the %'s, it'll be close enough that Ford Group might stay in 3rd place with GM declining & Fiat sales flat - tho from other forums, Fiat Group has more new stuff coming...
Anyone know if they're boosting Cinquecento (500) production since it sold out so fast upon intro?
&
If anyone finds a similar chart for U.S. sales (or any region),
((super-cool chart, NDW!!!))
PLEASE Post It!!!

ps the Cinque500cento-based nextgen Ford Ka will be out within the next 12 months, no?
be reeaall interesting to see if it sells-out too!

Ford of Europe's growth momentum continued in February with year-over-year sales in its main 21 markets increasing by 5.4 per cent, to 125,500 units. The company's market share was 8.1 per cent.

This strong performance, driven by its acclaimed new models, boosted the company's year-to-date sales by 3.3 per cent, to 267,900 vehicles.

The Focus was Ford's most popular model in February with sales totalling 32,800. This was followed by the Fiesta with sales of 24,900, while the Ford Fusion added a further 9,950 units.

The new Mondeo continued to accelerate, with sales leaping by 66 per cent to 13,370 versus February 2007. The Ford Ranger pick-up also performed strongly during the month, with sales surging by a remarkable 200 per cent, to 1,760. The popular Ford Transit medium commercial vehicle also continued to win sales, rising 13 per cent to 15,470.

Ford sales in February improved in virtually all of its main markets. Britain was the best-selling market, with sales of 14,650, slightly ahead of Germany, which increased by 870 to 14,630 units.

Spain and France also turned in strong performances: Spain improving by 935 units to 14,390, while France climbed by 770 to a total of 11,620.

The largest increase came in Russia, however, where Ford sales surged over 11 per cent to 13,900. Sales in Turkey also continued to move ahead, rising by 9.3 per cent to 5,400.

In percentage terms, the largest increases were posted in Portugal (up 44 per cent to 1,935), the Czech Republic (up 34.9 per cent to 1,065) and Poland (up 33.6 per cent to 2,470).

"Our strong performance in February, coupled with an outstanding reaction to our new models at the Geneva Motor Show keeps us on course to maintain our growth momentum in the coming months," said Stephen Odell, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe.

"The media and public reaction to the new cars we revealed at Geneva, particularly the all-new Fiesta and Kuga crossover, was outstanding. This demonstrates clearly that we are keeping our promise to deliver products that appeal to the heart as well as the head. This year alone we will introduce more than 20 individual new models and derivatives across our entire portfolio."
