There’s no brand more synonymous with American tradition than Ford, a fact that’s been true for nearly a century. Today, without losing any of its American quality or roots, Ford is making huge gains in the European automobile market.
European Ford sales are skyrocketing, growing 10% so far in 2015 in alone. In September, Ford vehicles had a total vehicle market share of a whopping 8.9%, being number two in passenger car sales and number one in commercial vehicle sales.
Ford commercial vehicle sales, as indicated by their number one position in the European market, have made enormous bounds. In 2015, Ford sales in Europe for commercial vehicles are up and impressive 26%.
Where are these monstrous sales taking place? Well, basically everywhere. Ford has increased its market share in 12 of its 20 European markets. This includes continental nations Germany, Spain, France, and Italy, as well as Turkey and the United Kingdom.
This is a great sign for Ford, but it’s also great news for American automotive engineering across the board.
