Ford Tops Government Motors In Sales

Ford Tops `Government Motors' in Sales to U.S. After Avoiding Obama Rescue - Bloomberg

Ford Motor Co., which eschewed a 2009 U.S. bailout, sold the most cars and trucks to the federal government this year for the first time since at least 2005, belying concerns the Obama administration would favor its government-owned competitors.

The U.S. bought 21,980 vehicles directly from Dearborn, Michigan-based Ford in fiscal 2010, edging out Detroit-based General Motors Co. by about 540 vehicles, according to data obtained under a Freedom of Information request from the U.S. General Services Administration, which coordinates most federal vehicle purchases. Chrysler Group LLC sold 13,063 vehicles.

Ford’s gain under Obama’s presidency came after the administration engineered bailouts totaling $85 billion of GM and Auburn Hills, Michigan-based Chrysler and their finance units last year.
