Ford uses Ford uses the latest statistic data taken from RLPolk consulting agency, according to which the number of registrations of new Focus in the world for the first quarter of this year increased by 18% - up to 288,724 vehicles. China Focus sales have jumped by 153% - up to 104,065 units, making the Chinese market the leading one in the world. Such numbers also made the Chinese market the most prioritized for Ford Company in the nearest future. American market was relegated to a second place.

According RLPolk agency, last year\'s global sales of Ford Focus exceeded the mark of 1,020,410 units. This gave Ford the grounds to suppose that this model has become the best selling in the world. However, Japanese Toyota, which considers that its Corolla has won this title, disagrees with Ford statistics. The thing is that Polk and Ford take into account the sales of models by their official names, while Corolla, which has different names in different markets, has many models excluded from the overall sales data. According to Toyota, Corolla\'s global sales of last year totaled in 1.16 million units. Ford offers the Focus in all world markets under a single name. Will the results be reevaluated is still unknown. This may, however, happen, in case Toyota makes an official appeal to recount the sales of its and Ford’s vehicles for the past 2012 year. And we, fans, can’t do nothing but wait to see the final result of this story.
