Ford Thailand said it sold 2,905 vehicles in November, a 1.8-per-cent increase over the previous month, with the sales rise led by continuing demand for the Ranger and EcoSport.

The Ranger pickup held onto its lead as Ford’s best-selling model in Thailand, with sales up 7.3 per cent from the previous month to 1,918. Steady demand for both manual- and automatic-transmission variants of the Ranger has driven year-to-date sales to 21,544. 
Meanwhile, 605 all-new EcoSports were sold, a 4.3-per-cent increase from October, driving sales of the compact urban SUV to 5,695 so far this year. 
Ford Thailand has sold 34,616 vehicles year-to-date. 
“We are encouraged to see sales holding steady, and as market trends continue to pick up pace in the fourth quarter, we expect a positive outlook for December,” said managing director Yukontorn “Vickie” Wisadkosin. “We already have a strong start, given the number of bookings in the recent Motor Expo.” 
Ford’s participation in the Thailand International Motor Expo included the first-ever display of the Mustang in the country – part of the company’s global celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the iconic pony car.
