Ford - A Journey Down The Rhine - 16 October 2013
Reuters photographer Wolfgang Rattay spent time documenting the manufacture of Ford Fiestas and their transportation along the Rhine, from the Ford Plant in Cologne to the Dutch seaport of Vlissingen. A surge in UK auto sales and an extra working day boosted Europe's new car market in September, providing fresh evidence that demand is slowly bottoming out after plumbing lows not seen in over 20 years. Automotive industry association ACEA said on Wednesday that new car registrations in Europe climbed 5.5 percent to 1.19 million vehicles in September, only the third month a gain was recorded in the past two years.
