Ford celebrates sales boost in Europe’s top two markets

Posted Wednesday, Apr 15, 2009, 1:35 pm in Employee News

Boosted by scrappage incentives, Ford Motor Co.’s sales grew significantly in Europe’s two biggest markets in March, the Automotive News reported today.

In Germany, Europe’s No. 1 market, Ford sales increased by 39.6 percent to 28,300 last month compared with the same month in 2008, the publication reported. In Italy, Europe’s second largest market, Ford sales were up 21.7 percent to 23,800, the story said. Both countries offer car buyers incentives to scrap old cars for new, more fuel-efficient models.

Scrappage bonuses in France and Spain also helped to boost sales of the Fiesta small car and Ka minicar, the Automotive News said. Ford said it increased market share in its main 19 European markets by 0.2 percentage points to 10 percent in March, consolidating its position as Europe’s second best-selling brand, the story said.
