Ford Extends Sales Lead in UK Through June
Ford just experienced a really good month in the UK this past June. How good? So good that it was Ford’s best June in the United Kingdom since 1989. Yes, the best June since Taylor Swift was still six months away from being born.
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT) June sales figures, Ford extended its market lead in June with its best car sales for the month in 12 years, its best June CV sales ever, and another high-volume month for the Fiesta.
Overall car sales in June were up 12.9% with 257,817 units sold. Ford’s car sales totaled 33,055 units, a full 3,033 registrations ahead of the next closest brand. Fiesta topped all UK sales with 12,543 sales, up 11,213 units from the year prior.
