Ford confirmed the 2010 Fiesta production

Ford announced the brand new Ford Fiesta small auto for North America will be made at the firm’s transformed Cuautitlán Assembly Plant starting in early 2010 and some sporty European hatchback unit is being added now to the North American lineup alongside that popular sedan model.

“Ford is absolutely committed to leveraging our global assets to accelerate the shift to more fuel-efficient small cars and powertrain technologies that people really want and value,” said Ford President/CEO Alan Mulally, who was there, in Mexico for this announcement. “Our investments in these facilities in Mexico are part of our plan to further realign our manufacturing capacity in line with the introduction of more small cars and crossovers.”

“Customers responded very positively after seeing both the sedan and hatchback versions of the Verve small car concept,” said Mark Fields, the president of The Americas, Ford Motor Company. “We know the market is headed toward more small cars and crossovers. With our product and manufacturing flexibility, we will be able to offer both models and add production capacity.”
