Ford Vietnam announced record sales in 2019, with a 31 per cent surge taking the number to 32,175 units.

An exceptional December performance capped the record year as sales rose 17 per cent to 3,095 vehicles, the US company said.

The year included record sales for the Everest mid-size SUV and strong performance by the segment leading Ranger pickup truck.

“We finished the year exceptionally strong as our full lineup of SUVs, pickup trucks and commercial vehicles continues to deliver on the widening appeal and demand within these segments,” Pham Van Dung, managing director of Ford Vietnam, said.

The Ranger remained the top selling pickup for the seventh consecutive year with full-year sales jumping 54 per cent to 13,319 vehicles.

Everest sales rose to 7,852.

Transit remained the top seller in the commercial van and bus segment.

The EcoSport compact SUV saw sales of 4,006 units.

The imported Explorer premium SUV, equipped with a 2.3L EcoBoost engine, saw sales rise by 9 per cent to 854 units and remain top of its segment for a third consecutive year.

The Tourneo seven-seat MPV, launched in the last quarter of 2019, provided a year-end sales boost with 245 vehicles. — VNS
