Fords European sales remain steady in first quarter of 2012


Figures released by the Ford Motor Company have show that even though many motoring companies are having difficulties with the current economic climate, the blue oval has been seeing a slight increase year on year with its car sales. Fords market share saw an increase in the first 3 months of 2012 in its 19 European markets, even though the total industry was slightly down.

One of the reasons for the increase has been on the solid demand for its newer Ford cars for sale, such as the C-MAX and the Focus, but overall sales remained slow throughout the industry.  Ford have kept their title of No. 2 best selling brand in both January and March in Europe, with many of its markets such as Russia seeing sales increases of up to 30% for the first quarter compared to the same period in 2011.

With so many great cars available, there has never been a better time to visit Ford car dealers to get a great deal on a new or used Ford vehicle at a great price.
