Ford Fiesta No.1 in Europe For 3 Years Running
COLOGNE, Germany, Jan. 29, 2015 – The Ford Fiesta was the No.1 selling small car in Europe again last year. Customers purchased 308,999* Fiestas in Europe in 2014, making it the top-selling small car in Europe for the third year running.
Among the most popular models is the Fiesta 1.0-litre EcoBoost equipped with Ford’s ground-breaking petrol engine, which also in 2014 was named International Engine of the Year for an unprecedented third year running.
“Cutting-edge styling and advanced technology are the keys to Fiesta’s continued popularity and models like the distinctive, two-tone Red and Black Editions with the new 140 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine continue to keep Fiesta ahead of the pack,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “In fact, to meet growing demand from Ford customers we are increasing production of the Fiesta at our assembly plant in Cologne, Germany.”
In February, the Cologne plant will increase Fiesta production by 300 units a day to 1,850 vehicles, and six additional weekend shifts have been scheduled in January and February.
