Ford Nears 1 Million Mark in Sales in China for 2015


Dearborn-based Ford Motor Co. is on pace to sell nearly 1 million vehicles in China this year, selling more than 106,000 vehicles in November, a 9 percent increase when compared to the same month last year.

“We are pleased that more and more customers are relying on Ford to provide them with vehicles they both want and value,” says John Lawler, chairman and CEO of Ford Motor China. “We remain committed to offering a full range of high-quality, safe, and fuel-efficient vehicles in China.”

Lawler says Ford’s passenger car joint venture, Changan Ford Automobile, sold nearly 85,000 vehicles in November, up 22 percent compared year over year. The Ford Mondeo, a mid-size car, saw a 13 percent increase in sales last month compared to November 2014, and the Ford Kuga and Ford Edge, both SUVs, each sold more than 10,000 vehicles in November.

Ford’s commercial vehicle investment, Jiangling Motors Corp., sold nearly 21,000 vehicles in November, a 20 percent decrease when compared year over year.

In November, Ford launched its flagship Taurus sedan at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, marking its 15th vehicle in the Chinese market. Next year, Ford will offer two new energy vehicles in China: the Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and the Ford Mondeo hybrid electric vehicle.
