Since launch in 1998, Ford Focus has held the crown of overall sales leader for 10 consecutive years until 2008 when Fiesta took the number one spot.
The 1,500,000th Ford Focus was delivered to 22-year-old Jaik Mickleburgh, a right-handed batsman playing for Essex Cricket first team and who has also played for the England U19s.
Taking the keys to his new Focus Jaik said: ‘I have had four Fords in the four years since passing my test – three of them were the latest Focus models and one Kuga.
‘For the long drives between home, Ford County Ground and away games, the Ford Focus delivers. One feature I like is heated seats which soothe away aches after playing.’
