The Ford Focus was the world’s best selling car in 2012 and it is already leading the chart in 2013. According to global registration data from Polk, vehicle registrations in the United Kingdom climbed by 18 percent during Q1 2013 to hit 288,724 models sold.
The Ford Focus claimed 25,081 registrations in Q1 and has also achieved huge success in emerging markets such as Brazil as registrations climbed 18 percent to 7,227 models. China has 104,065 Focus vehicles registered in Q1 2013.
Roelant de Waard, vice president of marketing, sales and service for Ford of Europe said “Our global Focus has struck a chord with customers around the world because it offers remarkable technologies, excellent fuel economy and performance, super driving dynamics and all at a very competitive price.
“Continual development has been critical to the Focus’ global success, as demonstrated by the new Focus 1.0-litre EcoBoost with 99 g/km CO2 that will launch in Europe early next year. More powerful than a first generation Ford Focus with a 1.6-litre engine from less than 10 years ago while producing 47 per cent less CO2, it’s a testament to Focus development never standing still.”
