Ford Fiesta is Europe's best-selling small car of 2012, 2nd overall

The Ford Fiesta is Europe’s top-selling small car of 2012, and the second most popular car overall behind the Volkswagen Golf.

Consumers bought a new Ford Fiesta every two minutes on average last year, making it the best-selling small car in Europe, according to automotive data intelligence provider JATO Dynamics.

Ford last year sold 953,174 cars in the 30 European markets monitored by Jato, including 306,405 Fiestas. Ford recently announced that during 2012 more than 1.4 million Ford vehicles were sold across all of the 51 European markets in which it operates.
In the UK, Ford sold almost 110,000 Fiesta models last year, confirming its position as the nation’s most popular car every year since 2009.

“The Fiesta had a fantastic 2012 in the UK, Europe and across the world. This iconic car has come to define what customers desire from a small car – style, quality, efficiency and great technology,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe.

Ford has sold more than 15 million Fiestas worldwide since the vehicle first went into production in 1976. The Fiesta now has been the top-selling small car in Europe for three out of the past four years. During that period, more than 1.7 million Fiestas have been sold in Europe and 2.1 million globally.
