Ford Motor sales in China dropped 8 percent in November from a year earlier, following a 5 percent decline in October, the United States automaker stated.
The company’s sales in the first 11 months of the year amounted to 1.06 million vehicles, drop of 6 percent from the same period a year earlier.
Ford’s China sales growth has lagged behind competitors on the world’s leading auto market this year, with the automaker now wanting to overhaul its technique to revive boost in China under new chief executive Jim Hackett.
To name a few moves, the evaluation of its China operations will likely see the automaker focus on segments such as electric vehicles and electric commercial vans, with China motivating to help clean up its polluted and overloaded city centers.
Ford is planning to present more new-energy vehicles for the country and is preparing to explore a more direct selling technique in a partnership with Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group.
