Article by Christian A., on December 20, 2010

As you may know already, Ford said the its sales in the United State in December are running at a 12 million unit annual rate, but what you don’t know is that the manufacturer expects sales o rise to almost 13 million next year.

According to reports, it appears that December will be the third straight month of industrywide deliveries at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 12 million or more.

Researcher IHS Automotive says that the sales for all 2010 may rise to 11.5 million units, from 10.4 million last year.

U.S. deliveries averaged 16.8 million from 2000 to 2007. “We have a high degree of confidence that 2011 is going to be a stronger sales year,” George Pipas, Ford's sales analyst, said today in a briefing with reporters.

“We're a whole lot better off than we were a year ago.” In this year’s first 11 months, Ford’s U.S. sales rose 21 percent, which means almost twice the industrywide gain of 11 percent. Ford’s sales were boosted by new models such as Taurus and Fiesta subcompact.

Furthermore, analysts say that Ford also increased its U.S. market share to 16.7 percent this year, from 15.3 percent in the same period last year. [via autonews - sub. required]
