Archive : Ford takes the lead

By Clifford Webb

Ford is now outselling British Leyland in the United Kingdom for the first time since the British group was formed six years ago. This development will be confirmed officially next week when the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders publishes details of new car registrations.

Reliable sources in the car Industry said last night that Ford took more than 30 per cent of the market in July compared with BLMC’s 28 per cent. In June BLMC with 32 per cent were six points clear of Ford with 26 per cent. The 4 per cent drop in July has all gone to Ford.
