US automaker Ford Vietnam gained a month-on-month growth of 76 per cent in sales, reaching 2,327 units in September, mostly due to strong sales of the newly launched Ranger and Everest.

“A healthy supply of the new Ranger and Everest in Viet Nam, together with continued strength in demand across our entire Ford lineup, is giving us a lot of confidence heading into the fourth quarter,” said Pham Van Dung, managing director, Ford Vietnam.

The recently launched new Ranger led Ford’s September resurgence with sales of 624 vehicles. The Ranger is continuing its leading position in 2018 with year-to-date sales of 3,854 vehicles.

The mid-sized Everest delivered its all-time best monthly performance in Viet Nam with September sales of 541 vehicles.

Transit continued to lead Viet Nam’s commercial van segment in September with sales of 451 vehicles. Year-to-date sales of the Transit have risen 2 per cent to 4,676 vehicles.

The new EcoSport saw September sales increasing by 33 per cent from the prior month to 456 vehicles, helping push its year-to-date total sales up 15 per cent to 3,377 vehicles.

September sales of the sporty Focus rose 2 per cent from August to 184 vehicles, while year-to-date sales of the 1.5L EcoBoost-equipped Focus increased 60 per cent to 1,397 vehicles.

The US-imported Explorer SUV premium – equipped with a 2.3L EcoBoost engine – saw September sales rise 15 per cent to 47 vehicles, pushing its year-to-date sales to 466 vehicles. — VNS
