Ford Focus is the best selling car in the World

Ford has taken the number one spot for sales of its Focus Worldwide selling in a total of 489,616 units for this year to date.

That figure is just over 27,000 more than nearest rival, Toyota Corolla.

Ford is also celebrating another achievement with its 350 millionth Ford rolling off the line in China last month, which just happened to be a Focus.

“Consider, for a moment, the enormity of 350 million vehicles,” said John Fleming, Ford executive vice president of Global Manufacturing. “It’s equivalent to producing one vehicle every 10 seconds for 109 years; and, if placed end to end, would stretch to the moon and back – twice.”

The Focus sales figure is expected to continue to grow with innovations like its award winning 1.0 ecoboost engine, and the promise of an electric Focus for 2013. Not to mention the new high performance ST which takes a starring role in the new Sweeney movie.
