After almost 50 years, the history of one of the most traditional small car series ends in mid-2023. As the “WirtschaftsWoche” reports, Ford will stop production of the small car Fiesta in Cologne after 47 years.
When the Fiesta appeared on the market in 1976, there were already around 30 competitors in the small car market. However, that did not prevent the city runabout from being sold on all continents. Even Henry Ford II, previously a critic of the small car, took a test drive and gave a positive verdict.
However, sales have fallen recently. Production also had to be stopped several times due to chip delivery bottlenecks.
