Posted on 6/6/2015 11:26:09 AM

Ford Motor Co. and its Chinese joint ventures sold 91,013 vehicles in China in May, up 4 percent from a year earlier, the company said today.

Ford for the first time reported retail rather than wholesale data. Retail figures are generally seen as a more accurate gauge of consumer demand.

Under the new reporting method, the automaker's sales for January through May totaled 459,982 vehicles, a rise of 1 percent from the same period a year earlier.

Ford makes vehicles in China in partnership with Chongqing Changan Automobile Co Ltd and Jiangling Motors Corp Ltd.
