Outside of its truck lineup, the Mustang is undoubtedly Ford’s most popular nameplate of all time. For several decades now, it has held the title for the best-selling sports car in America. Now, it has added yet more entries to its long list of accolades, as it has just bagged another world’s best-selling sports car title along with its fifth straight world’s best-selling sports coupe award.
From 2015 to December 2019, Ford sold a total of 633,000 Mustang across 146 countries around the world. According to data from IHS Markit, the 102,090 vehicles of the said grand total were sold in 2019 alone, during which sales increased in Germany by 33%, in Poland by nearly 50%, and in France by almost 100%.
Ford credits part of the Mustang’s success to its wide range of variants, including its current performance lineup which it dubs as the “greatest ever.” There are a total of 12 available across the globe, including popular models like the Shelby GT350 and the Shelby GT500.
“We’re proud of our growing Mustang stable and performance variants,” said Ford Motor Company chief operating officer Jim Farley. “From Sweden to Shanghai, more and more driving enthusiasts are enjoying the feeling of freedom and the American open road in these new Mustangs. We are honored to serve our owners, enthusiasts, and fans for 56 years and counting.”
