Ford increase Fiesta production at Cologne plant


The Ford Motor Company has further increased its production at its German plant in a move that is designed to help the firm cope with the unprecedented demand of the compact model across world markets.

Already among the best-selling cars in the word, the Ford Fiesta was confirmed as the most popular new model in 2013 in the UK, while also selling 705,287 models in the US alone. The favourability of Ford can also be seen in Germany, where the 3,621 Fiestas sold in February indicate a 45.7 per cent hike compared to the same period 12 months ago.

While undoubtedly highlighting the popularity of the model across the world, the increase in production means that you could be acquainted with your new Ford vehicle quicker than ever.

The Fiesta is one of the many success stories of Ford, having sold well over 16 million models since first being unveiled back in 1976. It has won a host of awards during that time, with among the most recent being named ‘Supermini of the Year 2013’ by Britain’s What Car?

Second increase this year
This popularity initially led to an increase in production at their Cologne plant in February from 1,650 to 1,760 models a day. However, after adding an extra shift in its daily production, that amount grew by a further 200.
