China, with 130,832 Ford vehicles sold in January, up 36 percent

new Ford Mondeo, and Ford’s sport utility vehicle (SUV) lineup

vehicles,” said John Lawler, chairman and CEO of Ford Motor China.
“The combination of great performance and great value is clearly
bringing more people into Ford showrooms.”

venture, also broke sales records, with 111,856 vehicles sold, up 58
percent compared to January 2015.

January 2015. The new Ford Mondeo was another record breaker,
