The latest version of the Ford Mondeo is leading the automobile manufacturer’s charge in the market, it has been claimed.
According to statistics from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), sales of the vehicle are up 20 per cent against last year.
In addition, it added that the new version has sold top trim levels 52 per cent of the time, compared to 35 per cent two years earlier.
Customers are "impressed" and "delighted" by the equipment list of the new Mondeo, commented Ford of Britain chairman and managing director Roelant de Waard.
"The surge of interest in Ford among private car buyers, triggered by new Mondeo, means our plants are operating at full capacity," he said.
Ford first introduced the range to the market in 1993 and it has remained in production since.
The word Mondeo is from the Latin phrase for "world".
