Ford Regains New Car Market Leadership In Scotland

Scottish motorists bought more new Ford cars than any other make in 2004, according to official figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders released today.

The top-selling Ford model in Scotland was the Ford Focus, closely followed by the Ford Fiesta, with the other models in the range also recording strong sales.

Ford's district manager in Scotland, Andy Barratt, commented: "To regain market leadership in what was a particularly competitive year is very satisfying."

Douglas Robertson, chief executive of the Scottish Motor Trade Association, said: "This is proof that the new car buyer in Scotland has confidence in the quality of the products being offered by our SMTA-franchised members. I believe it also reflects the fact that in real terms new cars are no more expensive than they were four years ago."
