Ford Worldwide Production By Nation : 2012


VW is number three but it seems the company has gone coy on production data, like German car makers generally of late. In a world of ever greater transparency, it doesn't make sense. Still, on to number four, Ford to see how they went in 2012 for car/LCVs.

USA increased its share of the company car making, a trend since 2009 when it was at 32%. Most of the vehicles made by Ford USA are pick up trucks. If only counting passenger cars, Ford would be a few places down on world rankings. Ford's US production was up 10% - the total company increase was 2%.

Other nations with increased share of Ford's manufacturing were China (+26%), Thailand (+39%) and Romania (+400%). Notable decreases were in Canada (-20%), Spain (-35%) and Belgium (-29%). Total world market share dropped slightly from 7.2 to 6.9%.
