Aug04 - Focus records 2nd best monthly sales.

Just doing some unassociated research & dicovered these quotes (re August 2004 sales) by Tom Gorman CEO Ford Aus, & thought you guys may be interested.

"In the small car segment Focus reinforced its presence with its second best month on record, registering 1,318 sales"

Further to this.....

“The momentum generated by the arrival of Territory, in conjunction with the strong results posted by Focus and the light commercial vehicle range this month, has Ford on track to achieve its best annual sales result in almost a decade,” Mr Gorman said.

Ah very interesting - no doubt the 'SR' pack with free aircon and alloys is helping this figure!

Re: Aug04 - Focus records 2nd best monthly sales.

I contributed to this figure with my Zetec purchase on the 26th August. :fly: and the same day their was an LX being delivered (same colour, ink blue).....

Ford has been marketing the Focus pretty aggresively too over the last couple of months with some pretty dcent dealer offers going around in Sydney.

Re: Aug04 - Focus records 2nd best monthly sales.

The 2.0L badge on the back is standard but the rest sounds like great extra value for sure. Be sure to get some photos up, especially of the badging, that'd be cool!

Enjoy the new addition! Tim

Err I'll rephrase that

There are three R badges, one under each Zetec badge and one under the 2.0 badge.

Hope that makes sense, lol
