Ford has announced that March retail sales in Malaysia grew 24 percent from March to 650 units.
Much of the sales was driven by growing demand for the Ranger pickup, with March sales increasing 19 percent from the previous month to 513 units.
“As the most capable, most powerful and smartest truck in the market today, the Ranger stays true to our ‘Built Ford Tough’ heritage, and we’re pleased that demand continues to grow across both Peninsula and East Malaysia,” said David Westerman, managing director, Malaysia and Asia Pacific Emerging Markets, Ford Motor Company.
Initial customer deliveries of the new Focus also kicked off in March. Equipped with a 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine, the Focus is the most powerful C-segment hatchback in Malaysia. It is also one of the most connected, with smart technology such as SYNC 2, Perpendicular Park Assist, BLIS with Cross Traffic Alert, and enhanced Active City Stop.
March also saw Ford and local distributor Sime Darby Auto Connexion kick off a series of roadshows to showcase Ford’s refreshed vehicle lineup. The roadshows will continue in April at Star Mega Mall, Sibu, Aman Central Mall, Kedah, 1Utama, Selangor and Spring Mall, Kuching.
