Cologne – For months, due to missing microchips for a Fiesta door module, the conveyor belts in the Ford plant in Cologne have been standing still. But soon things could finally move forward again …
The first bad news: According to BILD information, the agreed production stop until October 31st should take place until November 21st. That would mean further short-time work for the 5000 affected employees who are working in Fiesta production.

The good news: From November 22nd, a third of the workforce could return to their workplaces – and then build the new Fiesta with the facelift!
The highlight: The lifted fiestas should no longer contain the missing door module, but should be equipped with an alternative technology system. A corona outbreak in a supplier factory in Malaysia recently caused the semiconductor shortage.
If the plan works, according to BILD information, Ford will offer its Fiesta customers, who have been waiting in vain for months for the delivery of the small car, the facelifting model as a consolation in the new year at no extra charge.
