Retails sales up for Focus and Mondeo

The number of Ford Mondeo and Focus vehicles sold in the UK has driven total sales volumes up, it has been reported.

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), some 4,000 more automobiles were sold between January and November 2007.

Similarly, combined sales of the Galaxy and S-Max vehicles have gone up by 85 per cent compared to statistics from November 2006.

Ford of Britain chairman and managing director Roelant de Waard commented that the figures were indicative of "a great year", adding that the "models [are]seducing car buyers".

He remarked: "Ford’s UK business is strengthening, helped by a stream of new product launches continuing unabated next year."

Ford’s proposed sale of its Jaguar and Land Rover brands has been whittled down to three bidders.

Tata, One Equity Partners and Mahindra & Mahindra have all submitted their final offers.
