Ford Sollers increased vehicle export by 21% in 2017


In 2017 Ford Sollers company increased export sales by 21% having shipped 1,081 Ford vehicles of Russian assembly to the foreign markets. According to the company’s press service, the Ford Focus was the most exported vehicle. The Ford EcoSport subcompact crossover became the leader in the sales growth in the export markets in 2017 (133 vehicles; +280%). The sales growth was registered by the Ford Kuga crossover (118 vehicles; +74%) and the market leader – the Ford Focus (350 vehicles; +59%). Last year the company exported 233 Ford Transit LCVs including special versions on their base (+23%).

Today the whole lineup of vehicles assembled at Ford Sollers facilities in Russia are exported to Armenia, Belorussia and Kazakhstan. The Ford Fiesta compact sedans and hatchbacks, the Ford Focus C-class sedans, estate cars and hatchbacks, the Ford Mondeo business sedans, the Ford EcoSport and the Ford Kuga crossovers, the Ford Explorer 7-seat SUVs and the Ford Transit LCVs are represented in the export market.  Like in Russia, the Ford Focus is the leader in export sales (34% of the total sales) and its share is higher than in Russia.

Although the former union republics, like Russia, are affected with the worldwide trend of growing popularity of crossovers, the second place in the export car market is taken by the Ford EcoSport subcompact crossover (13%), not the Ford Kuga (12%), which competes in popularity with the Ford Focus in Russia.

The Ford Fiesta urban compact cars, which due to localization of the model production in Russia are available not only in hatchback modification offered in European countries but also as a sedan with a large trunk, also have quite strong position (9%) in the export markets. 
The Ford Transit light commercial vehicles both standard and special business modifications of the model, developed in collaboration with Ford Sollers R&D center, are traditionally in good demand.

The Ford Transit generates 23% of all Ford Sollers export sales. JV Ford Sollers exports not only finished products. Last October, the company started supplies of components for the renewed Ford Ecosport production in Romania from Russian suppliers. The factory in Craiova gets stamped body panels, glass, interior elements, sealants – all together 47 items from Russia.
