Ford (F.NYSE) said sales of its vehicles in China nearly doubled year-over-year in January, helped by the popularity of the Focus sedan, Bloomberg reported. The Michigan-based automaker’s sales for passenger cars and commercial vehicles increased 98% from the previous year to 61,475. Passenger vehicle sales alone shot up 135% to 44,439 units. Commercial deliveries rose 42% to 17,128 units. Ford aims to launch two locally produced sport utility vehicles this year, with the EcoSport to join the already released Kuga next month. Total vehicle sales in China are expected to surpass 20 million this year for the first time ever, China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said.
