Ford through its local joint ventures sold 100,834 vehicles in China in November, up 2% year on year.

That followed a 1% year on year fall in October and a 0.2% dip in September, Reuters reported.

Ford’s sales in the first 11 months of the year totaled 1,007,425 vehicles, up 20% year on year.

The news agency noted Ford had said its growth in China had been constrained by shortages in manufacturing capacities.

Its local joint ventures are with Chongqing Changan Automobile for cars and Jiangling Motors for light commercial models such as the Transit.
