Ford Focus became the world's best-selling car of 2012, the top three another Ford


According to the statistics agency RL Polk & Co.. the world's best-selling car in 2012 became the Ford Focus with 1.02 million units sold copy. The second place went to Toyota Corrolla with 872,774 records. Third place belongs to a slight pick-up F. Ford Fiesta from the same manufacturer to become the world's six.

Focus sales worldwide grew annually by 16%. Ford benefited particularly successful expansion of sales in emerging markets such as India, China, Indonesia and Thailand. The density of cars per 1,000 people in the driver's working-age population in these countries is very low, which gives space for its growth. For comparison, in the USA and Germany accounted for 1,000 full potential drivers 975 or 654 cars. In India it is only 32 cars, 49 in Indonesia, China and Thailand 83 200 cars.

Focus sales in China last year grew by 51%, the automaker has opened in this country for its third factory. The total capacity of Ford's most populous country in the world now stands at about 600,000 units per year.

Ford in the last 4 years, earned a total of 35.2 versus 30.1 mld.USD mld.USD that lost in 2006-2008

Statistics RL Polk is slightly different from the statistics themselves automakers. For example, Japanese Toyota last year says worldwide sales of the Corolla model at the level of 1.16 million units. The relatively large difference may be due to differences in methodology, statistics, when the Japanese automaker to his results probably also include all sales Axio models and Altis.
