Ford October Sales Up 75% (in India)
It’s no secret we love our Fords here in America. The F-150 is a legendary workhorse, the Mustang is an icon, and the Explorer is a benchmark in the SUV segment.
Ford’s U.S. October sales figures are proof of that. Retail sales were up 13 percent compared to October 2014. In fact, last month’s figures added up to Ford’s best October in 11 years.
An increase in overall F-Series sales of three percent certainly contributed to that, as did sales of more than 10,000 Mustangs (a 121-percent jump). Moving 30 percent more Explorers last month relative to October of 2014 also had a positive effect.
That’s all well and good, but Ford’s a global automaker. How’s it doing on the other side of the world, such as in India, where consumers can buy vehicles such as the Figo Aspire, Figo, and EcoSport?
Two words: the same.
Scratch that. Better.
According to NDTV, “Ford India on Monday reported a 75.58 per cent increase in total sales at 20,420 units last month. It had sold 11,630 units in October 2014.” Domestic sales went up 49 percent to 10,008 units in October compared to the same month last year; exports rose by more than 5,500 units to a total of 10,412.
