The popularity and surging sales of Ford Motor Company(NYSE:F) Focus cars in China has encouraged the company to invest more in its plants in the country.

Ford, Mazda and Chongqing Changan Automobile Co will increase their investment in the engine plant in Chongqing city according to their shareholdings, which are 25 percent, 25 percent and 50 percent, respectively, the Chinese firm said in a statement on Wednesday.

Among the Ford cars, the best-selling is the Focus model which was launched in late April.

It has been selling so well that workers at Ford's Chongqing car plant in southwest China have added shifts to keep up with demand, Reuters said quoting Trevor Hale, the firm's Shanghai-based China spokesman.

The engine venture, which also makes engines for Mazda models, will probably shut some old production lines following the latest investment, the official at Chongqing Changan Automobile said, without elaborating, the report added.
