HCM CITY — Ford said it achieved the highest ever monthly sales in Việt Nam last month - 3,466 units, representing an increase of nearly 44 per cent year-on-year.

Ranger and Focus led strong sales across its full line-up, each notching their best-ever monthly results.

“Things are really coming together for us to close out the year – including a series of successful new vehicles launches with new Ranger, Raptor, Everest and EcoSport, and a healthy supply of our full line-up at dealerships across the country,” Phạm Văn Dũng, the company’s managing director, said. 

Its record November numbers helped Ranger remain Việt Nam’s best-selling pick-up truck this year, a position it has held since 2014 – with year-to-date sales now totalling 6,747 units.

The Focus saw sales more than double from a year earlier to 269 vehicles, helping push its year-to-date total up 74 per cent to 1,851.

The EcoSport remained the country’s popular compact SUV with sales increasing 5 per cent to 400.

November sales of the Transit rose 7 per cent to 427 units and year-to-date sales to 5,475 vehicles. It has led the commercial van segment since 2015.

The mid-size Everest delivered November sales of 480 vehicles, up sharply from the same month a year ago. Year-to-date sales total 1,386 units.

The imported Explorer premium SUV equipped with a 2.3L EcoBoost engine saw sales jump 25 per cent in November to 133 vehicles and in the year-to-date to 602. — VNS
