According to an insider, after 46 years of manufacture and 4.8 million sales, the most popular automobile in Britain is going to cease production.
The “supermini,” which costs around 21,000, won’t be available in electric form, according to the firm. This indicates that the car will probably no longer be offered for sale in a year.
Ford has sold 4.8 million Fiestas in 46 years, and from 2009 to 2020, it ranked as the best-selling car for 12 straight years. The Ford Cortina came in second place, selling 4.3 million units between 1962 and 1982.
Ford might produce one more gasoline-powered Fiesta before the ban on new gasoline and diesel vehicles in 2030. But that won’t happen because of the expense, declining sales brought on by the popularity of new SUVs, and what sources refer to as a “reset to the DNA of Ford’s portfolio.”
Instead, managers are concentrating on an all-electric future and have committed to releasing four brand-new, battery-powered vehicles as well as five vans by 2024.
They won’t look like a Fiesta; instead, they’ll be a Mustang Mach-E, a Puma EV, and two mid-size crossovers. A smaller E-Transit Custom is going to be released, while the Transit already has an electric variant.
