Ford Motor Co.’s Fiesta subcompact car will remain an important part of the automaker’s product line even after U.S. sales slid 25 percent this year, said Erich Merkle, Ford’s U.S. sales analyst.
Ford Motor Co., seeking to challenge Toyota Motor Corp.’s dominance in gasoline-electric vehicles, said it will pass its full-year record for U.S. hybrid sales this month on demand for its Fusion and C-Max models.
Ford Motor Co., the second-largest U.S. automaker, said it raised incentives this month to boost domestic sales after cutting them about $300 a vehicle in April.
Ford Motor Co.’s namesake brand will top 2 million vehicles in U.S. sales this year and its Focus compact car was the top-selling model line worldwide through September, the automaker said today.
Ford Motor Co., which spurred the U.S. sport-utility vehicle boom of the 1990s, is rolling out smaller utilities to more markets worldwide, betting that growth of recent years will continue.
"We call it a volume-based growth program."
