Ford's European Sales Rise Slightly but Company Warns Decision Makers
Even though Europe is experiencing economic instability, Ford saw its year-to-date sales from January to November in the 51 European markets increase by 2.5 per cent, or 35,500 units, to 1,451,000 cars. In November sales in these markets dropped by one per cent, or 1,300 units, to 123,700 vehicles.
While overall sales in Ford’s traditional 19 European markets fell in November by 4.4 per cent to 95,700 units compared to the same month last year, the Blue Oval increased its market share in five of these markets as well as Turkey, Russia and Romania.
