Lincoln sets sales record in China

With record China sales, Lincoln expanded its global growth in 2017 with 188,383 vehicles sold - a 13 percent gain and its best performance since 2000. In the United States, Lincoln SUV sales continued to increase, while sales in China were up 66 percent year-over-year.

Lincoln SUVs had their best year since 2003 in the United States, with 71,607 vehicles sold in 2017. In addition, the Navigator set the stage for a strong year by selling 1,444 vehicles in December, its first month of sales.

In the U.S., Lincoln’s volume leader, the MKX, enjoyed its best year of sales since entering the market in 2007. The MKC saw its best year of performance since launching in 2014, with sales up 5.8 percent.

In China, Lincoln continues to gain momentum just three years after entering the market. It set a record for 2017, with sales up 66 percent year-over-year, with 54,124 vehicles sold. Lincoln China continues to expand its dealer network, opening its 100th store in December, with plans to have 125 stores open by the end of 2018.

Lincoln’s record performance is due to stronger differentiation and the exceptional appeal of its luxury lineup. The MKC is the top seller in China, while a total of 10,501 Lincoln Continentals were sold there last year.
