American automobile manufacturer, Ford, has reported record sales of about 1.1 million vehicles in China in 2015.
The Dearborn, Michigan, automaker said on Friday, January 8 that its 2015 sales in the country were up by three percent from the previous year as demand for small sport-utility vehicles there continues to grow.
It also set a new monthly sales record in December, selling 124,768 vehicles. That’s up 27 percent from the prior-year period.
Ford also tapped into China’s booming market for luxury cars with 11,630 Lincoln vehicles sold during the brand’s first full year in the country, where its entire SUV line-up is offered.
Lincoln added eight more dealerships than expected for a total of 33 in the 2015.
The company is aiming for 60 dealerships in 50 cities by year-end.
