Ford India Sales Up 28% In December
Ford India reported an increase of 28.47% in total sales at 14,401 units for December. It had sold 11,209 units in December 2013, the company said in a statement. However, Ford’s domestic sales declined by 36.05 per cent to 3,754 units in December as against 5,871 units in the same month of last year, it added. Its exports jumped nearly two-fold to 10,647 units last month as against 5,338 units in the year-ago period. “2014 has been a challenging year for the Indian automotive industry. Factors like high interest rates and inflation impacted the much needed turnaround in sales and consumer sentiment,” Ford India Marketing, Sales and Service executive director Anurag Mehrotra said.
