2013 Ford Focus

The 2012 Polk global market registration data is in, and the Ford Focus has been named the world’s best-selling passenger car, with the Ford F-Series pickup in third. The Ford Fiesta came in as the best-selling subcompact.

Ford Focus sales totaled 1,020,410 cars worldwide, with the market gains in the US and China driven by consumer demand. In China, registrations increased 51 percent compared to the previous year, making that specific market responsible for more than one of every four Ford Focus compact cars that were sold worldwide. In the US, sales increased 40 percent in 2012, helping the Ford Focus become the best-selling nameplate.

Polk data also confirmed the Ford Fiesta earned the title of best-selling subcompact car worldwide, with 723,120 sales last year. When combined, Ford’s Focus and Fiesta totaled 1,743,540 vehicles sold in 2012 alone. Sales for the F-Series totaled 785,630 trucks last year, letting the F-Series secure the third spot among all vehicles sold globally.

“Focus and Fiesta represent the culmination of our One Ford global product strategy. Our global products are resonating with consumers–especially in the best-selling, most competitive segments–with their unique combination of fuel efficiency, high quality, rich content and fun-to-drive personalities,” said Jim Farley, Ford executive vice president, global marketing, sales and service and Lincoln in a recent press release.
