THE U.S. MIGHT NOT SEE THE NEXT FIESTA
With sales of passenger cars dropping in the American market, Ford may drop the next generation Fiesta from its U.S. lineup, according to Romanian publication 0-100.ro. When they spoke with Robert Stiller, Manager of B-Segment cars at Ford, he said “the previous model was a global product, and with the new generation, (they) are targeting only Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.” While Ford has made no official statement on the matter, it wouldn’t be surprising given the Fiesta’s steadily declining sales. So far this year only 24,000 were sold in the U.S. market.

UK will ban sales of gasoline, diesel cars starting 2040

Do you think the Amish will accept electricity after 2040?

No, I don't want to hear how using an electric motor means there is no reason to have multiple gear ranges. If there wasn't an advantage, why would many of the Formula E racecars be running with multi-speed gearboxes?
