FORD’S COMMERCIAL VAN SALES HELP MAY SALES FIGURES
Last month was a very impressive month for the Ford Motor Group with many of its vehicles achieving levels of sales not seen in a very long time. Figures showed that during May the sales in North America alone totalled 216,267, that's a 13% increase compare to the same month last year.
Ford's commercial vehicles helped immensely with regards to the company's sales figures for May. America's top selling commercial vehicle the F-Series pickup saw its sales increase by 29% and the E-Series van increase by 31%, making it the best sales for Ford since 2008.
Some other welcome news for Ford was that the smaller counterpart of the European Transit van, the Ford Transit connect, has had its best sales month so far in the states, showing that new Ford vans are certainly the way forward across the world and not just in Europe.
