Ford says March China auto sales up 28% year/year

By: | at 04:21 PM | International Trade  

Ford Motor Co and its Chinese joint ventures sold 103,815 vehicles in China in March, up 28 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. automaker said.

That follows a 67 percent year-on-year jump in February and a 53 percent rise in January.

The company’s sales in the first three months of the year came to 271,321 cars, up 45 percent from the same period a year earlier.

Ford’s China sales have been bolstered by continued strong demand for its Ford Focus model, the best-selling car in the country last year, according to China’s automobile association.
