|   Thursday, April 11, 2013
According to analysis by RL Polk & Co., the most popular car sold worldwide in 2012 was the Ford Focus, with over 1.02 million cars sold.
Ford never managed to gain the title of best-selling car model from the time of the Model T and its successor, Model A. Volkswagen held the title in the '50s with Beetle (Bug), and in recent years, leaders were German producer of the Golf and Toyota Corolla.

In the U.S., Ford Focus sales were up 40% in 2012 and in China deliveries rose by 51%, according to the American producer.
China last year was the best market for cars, counting over 25% global sales of Focus .

Second place was occupied by Toyota Corolla, Japanese spokesman, Ryo Sakai, said that Corolla sales were up to 1.16 million units in 2012, adding that Toyota was the most popular car in the world and contradicting rivals from Ford, saying it's rank was first among the most sold cars in 2012, reports Reuters..

3rd position was occupied by an American model pick-up F-Series.
According to statistics, the U.S. model has sold over 785,630 units, selling them was exclusively in America, which earned him an honorable place in the top three selling cars in 2012.

Toyota Camry remained the best selling model in the U.S., as has happened in the last 11 years, regaining General Motors, the title of the largest global automaker by the number of the units sold. General Motors sold in the third semester up to 2.28 million automobiles and 6.95 million units in the first nine months, said Jim Cain, a spokesman for the American group.

Cars production in Romania grew by 6% last year, 2012 was the first year that Ford cars began to emerge from the doors of the Craiova plant.

According to Automotive Manufacturers and Importers Association, quoted by Adevarul, the total number of cars produced in 2012 in Romania was about 326.600 units.

Over 90% of cars, meaning 296,000 were Dacia products, but, production decreased in 2012 by 5% over the previous year, but the advance was supported nationwide by Ford, which started producing cars in the summer of 2012.
