Ford sees Nov sales rise 55%


Ford on Thursday said its November car sales had risen by 55 percent to 2,975 units from a year earlier, boosted by demand for the new Everest, EcoSport and the Ranger.

Year to date sales increased to 22,548 units, the firm said, putting it on track to recording a record 2015.

“Consumers want more choice in their car-purchasing experience and look to Ford for the strength of our vehicle portfolio,” newly appointed managing director Ford Philippines Lance Mosley said.

“Customers value the quality, durability, performance and style of our vehicles, which have contributed to our continued growth in the Philippines,” Mosley added.

Sales for the all-new Everest more than tripled year-over-year to 1,151 units, making it the top-selling nameplate for Ford in the Philippines since its retail launch in September.

The EcoSport sold 896 units in November, delivering the compact SUV’s best-performing monthly sales in the Philippines since it was launched locally in 2014.

The Ranger pickup sold 716 units in November.  The premium Explorer, lastly sold 80 units, bringing year-to-date sales to 862 units.

Further preparing for growth, Ford said it would expand its nationwide dealership network to 40 locations when Ford Marilao opens by the end of the year.
