Ford Mustang ready to take over the world 0

Since it was first introduced in the US back in 1965, Ford’s iconic Mustang has regularly topped the muscle car charts.

In 2014, a new Mustang was revealed, and with it a new sales strategy that would take the Mustang overseas and far away from its home town of Detroit.

Since then, the world has embraced the new Mustang with open arms. In 2016, it achieved best seller status in numerous countries. Ford has now announced that: “Mustang expanded its sales lead in 2016 as the world’s best-selling sports car with more than 150,000 Mustangs sold, according to IHS Markit new vehicle registration data.”

Ford added: “Mustang’s ascension to best-selling sports car in the world in 2016 was driven largely by continued global rollout that saw big sales gains in Germany and China, as well as the car’s introduction to smaller nations such as New Caledonia, Gibraltar and Bonaire. Since launching in China in 2015, Mustang has become the best-selling sports car in the world’s biggest auto market.”

By the end of the year, the Mustang will be sold in 146 markets, with an updated design to be revealed later in 2017. The company’s management is understandably pleased, as for many decades the made-in-Michigan Mustang was only available in North America.

“Ford Mustang resonates with people all over the world as a lasting symbol of freedom and the open road,” said Raj Nair, Ford’s Chief Technical Officer.

“We’re excited to see this icon expand from being America’s most popular sports car during the past half-century to the best-selling sports car in the world in 2016, as we’ve started offering it in a growing number of global markets.”
