Ford is passing a big milestone today, its 350 millionth vehicle.
It will be a Ford Focus, which is the world's best-selling car for the first half of 2012, produced at a factory in Rayong, Thailand.
"Producing 350 million vehicles is equivalent to producing one vehicle every 10 seconds for our 109-year history. If placed end to end, the vehicles would stretch to the moon and back – twice," said John Fleming, Ford executive vice president of global manufacturing, in a statement.
Ford, quoting IHS Automotive, says the Ford Focus sold 489,616 units in the first half of this year, besting Toyota Corolla at 462,187. The latest Focus is Ford's bid to produce a vehicle that could be sold in its basic form all around the world. In the past, it produced two Focuses -- one for Europe and one for the U.S.
