Ford have just sold the 1.5 millionth model of its extremely popular Focus model, the number of vehicles sold has brought the family hatchback into the big league amongst some of the most iconic vehicles in the UK’s car history.
The Ford Focus was launched back in 1998 and for ten consecutive years remained the overall sales leader within the UK until one of the other Ford cars for sale, the Fiesta, took its crown. This year the Ford Focus has only been beaten by the Fiesta in regards to sales, and the latest 2012 model is already the third most popular vehicle sold in the UK this year.
One feature that has helped the Focus’s appeal is the introduction of a 1.0 litre, three cylinder engine; The engine offers drivers 58.9 milesper gallon and low CO2 emission rates, almost the same level as a Ford diesel engine.
The landmark figured model was a Titanium X model and was sold and delivered to cricketer Jaik Mickleburgh who plays for the Essex Cricket Club’s first team. The delivery coincided with Fords commitment to provide ongoing sponsorship to the cricket club’s ground in Chelmsford. The motoring giant has provided sponsorship to the club since 2005 and is also proud to be Essex’s largest private employer with 12,000 employees in a range of roles such as sales, marketing, and research & development.
