Since 1960, Borgman Ford has been West Michigan’s proud home of the Ford Mustang, which was then and still is the top-selling sports car in North America. We are pleased to announce that since it’s global launch, the Ford Mustang has become the best-selling sports car in the world for 2016. After its global launch in, Ford fans and sports car enthusiasts in now 140 different countries have been enjoying this fast, athletic, and iconic sports car, and are eagerly awaiting the launch of the 2018 model later this year.
After its global launch in 2014, Ford fans and sports car enthusiasts in now 140 different countries have been enjoying this fast, athletic, and iconic sports car, with six more countries being added this year. Since 2015, more than 98,000 cars have been shipped to different countries all over the world, and thanks to the Mustang’s warm welcome in Europe and Asia, that number is doubling every year.
This article in the Official Ford Media Center tells more about this momentous achievement, including the Ford Mustang’s high popularity and performance in China – the world’s largest auto market. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Ford Mustang has been the best-selling sports car in the United States over the last 50 years, and now, thanks to growth in international markets, the iconic pony car is the most popular sports car in the world, according to Ford analysis of IHS Markit new vehicle registration data in the sports car segment.
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. Overall global sales increased 6 percent over 2015, fueled by international market growth up 101 percent with almost 45,000 Mustang vehicles sold outside the United States.
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. Sales in 2016 were up 74 percent over 2015, according to IHS Markit new vehicle registrations.
“The legacy of Mustang continues to grow, and in places it never reached before,” said Mark Schaller, Ford Mustang marketing manager. “We continue to make it available in new markets, and drivers in those markets continue to respond with resounding approval.”
