Ford’s Mustang has been welcomed the world over by drivers – becoming the best-selling sports coupe for 2015.
Reports say that the Mustang has been the only car to surpass the 100,000 sales mark in 2015.
The Mustang has enjoyed great demand in almost every one of the 140 countries it went on sale in. In Australia, the car was sold out completely for 2017, before it was allowed an extra shipment of vehicles.
Despite limited availability, the ‘Stang has been lapped up by buyers, with more than 16,000 people having ordered one in Europe. Customers in the UK have already bought 3,500 Mustangs.
While the smaller and more economical EcoBoost-powered Mustang is the most popular in China, the majority of buyers are opting for cars fitted with Ford’s powerful 5.0-litre V8. In America, 12,563 Mustangs were sold in March, surpassing figures generated by the similarly-priced Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger.
Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst, told Carscoops: “U.S consumers have enjoyed interesting foreign sports cars for decades, so it is time for the Americans to return the favour with the worldwide launch of the new Mustang.
“Global markets have responded in a huge way. Ford Mustang was the only sports coupe in the world with more than 100,000 units registered last year.”
The Mustang offers incredible value for money, with the base V8 model coming in at £37,315. It is this, along with the iconic status of the car, that is bringing customers to Ford dealerships in their thousands.
