A 56% increase in purchases from last year has made the Ford Mustang the best-selling sports car worldwide. There were 76,124 Mustangs registered around the world in the first half of the year.
The drastic increase is largely due to introducing right-hand models to Europe and other right-driving countries globally. Steve Odell, the executive vice president of global marketing, sales and service, said, “Right-hand drive markets around the world have been waiting more than half a century for the official Mustang experience.”
Besides Europe, the right-hand Mustang is also available in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, and a few other small regions. The Mustang has already become one of the most popular sports cars in China after only a few months.
The fastback model accounts for 75% of Mustang sales in Europe, with two out of three consumers choosing the V8 engine and 51% going for the six-speed manual transmission. Additionally, 28% of European customers are driving around with the top down, mostly in Race Red and Magnetic Gray exterior color options.
