FORD Philippines, the local arm of Michigan-based auto giant Ford Motor Company, reported a 61 percent increase in sales in the first seven months of the year led by continued strong demand for its model units EcoSport, Ranger and Everest.
Ford Philippines said sales in the seven months rose to 19,517 units from 12,132 units in the same period last year.
For the month of July this year, the company sold a total of 2,748 units, also up by 61 percent from the 1,705 units sold in July 2015.
“Our big three Ford nameplates continue to drive record sales this year, attracting customers across the country who appreciate the value, quality and safety that our global Ford vehicles deliver,” Lance Mosley, Ford Philippines managing director, said in a statement.
Ford’s Everest mid-sized SUV was still Ford’s best selling model unit domestically in July, delivering retail sales of 945 units. It also took up bulk of January to July sales with 7,906 units sold.
Everest is followed by EcoSport which sold 866 units in July, and 5,233 units in January to July. The Ranger pickup truck saw sales reach 4,672 units from January to July, including 700 units in July alone.
“The Ranger represents our Built Ford Tough heritage, and combines the quality, versatility and durability that our customers expect in a pickup with class-leading features and technology,” Mosley said.
