Changan Ford sales last month rose 37.5% year on year to around 18,000 units.

The Chinese JV has now posted year-over-year growth for 13 consecutive months.

Focus sales rose 22% to 9,425 units while the Mondeo achieved its best ever February sales, rising more than 24%. S-Max volume was up 85%.

“February is traditionally one of the more quiet months in China’s auto industry, so we’re pleased to see our growth momentum continue, supported by some significant [model] sales highlights,” Changan general manager Nigel Harris said.
