Ford of Europe is celebrating a significant growth in Europe’s two largest markets in March. Led by incentives, Ford’s sales grew 39.6 percent to 28,300 units last month in Germany, Europe’s No. 1 market. Sales in Italy, Europe’s second largest market, grew 21.7 percent to 23,800 units.

In the United Kingdom, Ford’s sales fell by 21,000 to 62,300.
