(VEN) - Ford announced its best-ever monthly sales performance in Vietnam with retail sales in November jumping 53 percent year-over-year to 2,369 units.
Strong demand for Ford’s best-selling Ranger, EcoSport and Transit helped us achieve record monthly sales and contributed to a 47 percent increase in year-to-date sales of 18,106 units, which will enable us to stay on track in delivering record full-year performance in the Vietnamese market.
The Ranger strengthened its segment-leading position with sales of 1,333 units, and more than doubling sales of 603 units from November 2014. Ranger’s year-to-date sales of 7,311 units jumped 80 percent compared to the same period last year.
Sales of the EcoSport in November increased 50 percent year-over-year to 394 units. Year-to-date sales for the popular compact sports utility vehicle rose to 3,555 units, representing a 174 percent increase compared to the same period in 2014.
Continued consumer demand for commercial vans helped the Transit reaffirm its segment-leading position with sales of 555 units, representing a 39 percent increase year-over-year. Year-to-date sales of the Transit increased 41 percent to 4,960 units compared to the same period last year.
Positioning for continued growth in Vietnam, our dealership network in the country will be expanded this month with the opening of a sales boutique in Vung Tau city and an authorized dealer in Nha Trang. Both locations are intended to support growing demand from customers in the southern part of the country.
