According to reports, Ford bosses are expected to announce in the next few days that the production of the Fiesta will end by mid-2023. The Fiesta is currently produced in Germany, although the first model rolled off the production line in Dagenham, Essex, in 1977.

In October 2022, the Fiesta was still the sixth best-selling new car in the UK with 4,570 registrations, according to the latest data from industry body, The Society of Motor Manufacturers.
Ford is investing $50bn (£43.bn) globally through 2026 to electrify its fleet…could we see the Fiesta returning as a fully-fledged EV?
