And the trend seems to be very positive for Ford as in March, the Fiesta's European sales climbed to 52,800 units, making it the best-selling car of the month according to automotive business consultancy, JATO Dynamics.
"The new Fiesta has been a tremendous hit with consumers since it went on sale all over Europe," said Ingvar Sviggum, vice-president of marketing, sales and service, Ford of Europe. "Customers are attracted to Fiesta by its design, the driving experience and affordability of the car."
Currently, Ford has shipped 100 five-door Fiestas in the U.S. that have been loaned for a period of 6-months to selected drivers / bloggers (generally people who are active in social media sites) that participated in the "Fiesta Movement" project. North Americas sales of the new Fiesta in will begin in 2010.
