Ford’s U.S. sales in May jumped 13.3% compared with year-ago to 241,048 units, propelled by the booming housing and energy markets and strong demand from consumers on the East and West Coasts.

The Ford brand’s retail share has continued to grow on the two coasts, up a combined 2.5 points to 10.9% since 2008, Ken Czubay, Ford vice president-U.S. marketing, sales and service, says in a conference call with analysts and journalists.

“That’s higher than any domestic brand and one point from Honda,” he says, noting the Fusion midsize sedan and Escape cross/utility vehicle are its best-sellers on the coasts. “Fusion had its highest-ever retail share in California at 8%.”

Czubay says Fusion deliveries would have been higher if not for capacity constraints in Mexico...


Sounds pretty good! I especially like that we're catching Honda on coastal market share. It's not the ultimate goal, but it's progress.
