Since its face-lift for the 2010 model year the Fusion has enjoyed a record breaking year in sales – and now the Fusion has become the top-selling domestic car in America. The Ford Fusion has been on the market since its debut five years ago, but only recently has it gained significant attention from both media and consumers alike. The 2010 Ford Fusion boasts best-in-class fuel economy for each respective drivetrain (4 cylinder, V6, and hybrid). It is likely the combination of class-leading fuel economy and freshened styling that have propelled the Ford Fusion to a year-to-date sales total of 151,137 units – a personal best that beats the 2007 full-year record handily. In addition to a personal best in sales, the Fusion can now lay claim to being the best-selling car (not including trucks) in America. Ford is also enjoying a high conquest rate with the Fusion with more than 60 percent of Ford Fusion Hybrid buyers coming from import brands like Toyota and Honda. Ford’s Fusion Marketing Manager Jonathan Richards said, “Fusion Hybrid, Sport, and SEL models account for 50 percent of sales.” This high rate of sales for loaded models has likely helped to push Ford to report its first profit since the first quarter of 2005 during the last quarter.
