Canada October Sales Jump 12%

Consumers in Canada purchased 18,458 new Ford and Lincoln vehicles in October, up 12 per cent from the same month last year. Car sales jumped 23.4 per cent to 5,831 units and truck sales increased 7.4 per cent to 12,627 units.

"Canadians are buying cars and trucks at a record-level pace. The economy is healthy and consumer confidence remains strong," said Robert Girard, vice president of sales, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited.

"Ford Focus, available with the exclusive-to-Canada winter package that offers traction control, heated seats and heated mirrors, is building sales momentum in the very tough compact car segment," Girard added.

Ford and Lincoln SUV sales rose 19 per cent in October, powered by sales of the all-new 2003 Ford Expedition (up 74.4 per cent), Ford Escape (up 17.2 per cent) and Ford Explorer (up 16.6 per cent).

Lincoln sales increase 7%

The 133.8-per-cent increase in sales of the redesigned Lincoln Town Car helped boost overall Lincoln sales by seven per cent in October. In the 2003 model year, Lincoln’s entire four-vehicle product range will be all new or redesigned – the most ambitious engineering task ever undertaken by the brand.
