Ford Motor March US Sales Rise - Quick Facts

Ford Motor Co. (F) said that its March US sales totaled 223,418 vehicles, up 5 percent from last year.

Retail sales grew 11 percent for the month. The company said it posted its best March U.S. sales month since 2007, with the Ford Fusion recording its best month ever, Ford Focus and Ford Edge achieving their best March ever and the F-Series showing the strongest March sales in five years.

For the first quarter, the company's sales were up 8.6 percent year-over-year to 539,247 vehicles. The increases were driven by the popularity of Ford's most fuel-efficient models posting record sales months.

"Rising gas prices continued to drive strong customer demand for Ford's fuel-efficient vehicles throughout March and the first quarter," said Ken Czubay, vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.
