Ford sales in China dropped 43 percent in September

Ford's F sales in China dropped 43 percent in September from the same month a year earlier, a sign that sales are slowing in the world's largest car market. This is the third straight month of declining auto sales in China. The second-largest U.S. automaker has been hit by the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China , despite the fact that Ford sells cars in China through partnerships with local firms.
