UK’s love affair with Ford continues

Written by: Neil

The nation's love affair with a certain brand of automotive manufacturer continues, with Ford continuing to achieve amazing results here in the UK.

It's been another great start to the year for Ford and everyone here in the Petrol News office has welcomed the announcement that the marque achieved another record month for UK sales in January 2017.

It's been the fastest start to the year on record for the company, with 30,586 vehicles sold to buyers up and down the country – breaking the previous record set in January 2015 by more than 2,000 registrations.

Meanwhile, the Ford Fiesta remains the UK's biggest seller to the private market, while the Ford Transit Custom again topped the charts in the commercial vehicle segment – both amazing vehicles that everyone here at Petrol News continues to appreciate.

Overall, this is great news for the brand and highlights the undoubted affinity that the public has towards Ford, with the brand a proper icon to all true petrolheads.

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, adds: "Ford has started the year with an impressive pace of sales; it's great to see the brand continues to go from strength to strength, despite its years of UK dominance."
