Sales of Ford Fusion sedan are about to hit the 200,000-unit mark

Article by Christian A., on December 29, 2010

Through November, U.S. sales the Fusion midsize sedan total 196,590, a 21.5% increase compared with the figure for the same period a year ago. It is expected to reach the 200,000-unit mark, a milestone that a Ford passenger car has not been able to reach since 2004.

As there are more than 10,000 units being delivered monthly, the Fusion is expected to post sales of more than 200,000, marking a record sales year for the model.

The last Ford passenger cars that were able to sell more than 200,000 units annually are the Ford Taurus sedan and Focus compact car, after posting annual sales of 248,148 and 208,339, respectively.

Focus counted sales of 195,823 in 2008, while the Taurus sold 196,919 units in 2005. Actually, only a handful of passengers’ cars have reached 200,000 units in sales this year. For the month of November, the top-selling car was the Toyota Camry, with 296,581 deliveries.

This is then trailed by Honda Accord (253,073), Toyota Corolla (244,024), Honda Civic (231,955) and Nissan Altima (206,247). George Pipas, Ford Motor Co.’s top U.S. sales analyst, says Fusion sales were never “off the charts” but in that spot that is the “most cross-shopped (segment) in the industry.” [via Ward's Auto]
