Today Ford is celebrating the production of its one millionth Fiesta at its Cologne, Germany plant. The facility produced its one millionth Fiesta just 33 months after the first car rolled off the line.

Since Ford first began production of the Fiesta, more than six million have been produced. The Fiestas built in Cologne are exported to 71 countries. Ford also produces the Fiesta in China, Thailand, and Mexico, where the Fiesta is manufactured for customers in the US and Canada.

“We are pleased with the Fiesta’s continued success, not only because it’s our highest volume model in Europe, but also because it’s now being produced and sold around the world to great acclaim,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe.

Ford’s Cologne facility is the production center for both the Ford Fiesta and the Ford Fusion, with an average output of 1,770 cars per day. The facility operates with three production shifts and it can produce 400,000 cars annually.

In addition to producing a record volume of Fiestas in record time, the plant is also celebrating the anniversary of the very first vehicle that rolled off the assembly line there back in 1931 — a Ford Model A.
