The Focus is Ford's best selling car and the world's best selling car, as of 2014. In 2013, more than 1 million Ford Focus models were sold throughout the world.
The popularity of the Ford Focus is supported by strong sales of the model in China. The Focus is built in eight different plants throughout the world, located in Germany, the United States, Russia, China and Vietnam, in addition to Thailand, Taiwan and Argentina. Part of the Ford Focus's success can be attributed to the fact that Ford has reduced the number of models it sells to reduce its overall part count, while simultaneously raising profits.
