CLICK TO VIEW ALL 21 MUSTANG IMAGES FROM AROUND THE WORLD Ford Mustang, top-selling sports car in the U.S. over the last 50 years, became best-selling sports car in the world in 2016, according to Ford analysis of IHS Markit global automotive registration data in the sports car segment International markets fuel Mustang sales growth in 2016, with global sales up 6 percent over 2015; number of Mustangs exported is doubling every year, with more than 98,000 total cars shipped to customers outside of U.S. since 2015, according to Ford data Once only available in North America, Mustang is now sold in 140 countries; six more countries to be added this year New Mustang arrives this fall with sleeker design, more advanced technology and improved performance   DEARBORN, Mich., April 25, 2017 – 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 HIS 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.” For decades many global Mustang enthusiasts went to great lengths to get their hands on Ford’s fast, fun and affordable sports car. Recognizing this passion, Ford decided that in 2015 it would take its iconic Mustang to markets across the world. Ford’s data shows more than 395,000 sixth-generation Mustangs have been produced at Flat Rock Assembly Plant since 2015 and of that, 98,000 have been shipped to customers outside of the United States. From 2015 to 2016, Ford doubled the percentage of exports to 17.5 percent and the company expects export growth to continue, reaching 30 percent for the 2017 Mustang. Mustang – with more than 8.4 million likes – is the most-liked vehicle on Facebook. It is now available in 140 countries across all continents other than Antarctica. This year, availability of the 2018 Mustang will expand to six new countries, including Brazil, the Palau Islands and the Ivory Coast, with three additional markets announced later. For 2018, worldwide Mustang fans will see a more athletic look highlighted by new front and rear design, more advanced technologies such as an available 12-inch all-digital instrument panel, and the availability of improved performance features such as an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission, MagneRide™ damping system and new active valve performance exhaust system.

Photo: Ford The Ford Mustang is now the world’s best selling sports car, according to a Ford analysis of IHS Markit data. The company has long sold the Mustang in the United States, but has recently pushed an international expansion of the vehicle, with 45,000 Mustangs sold outside the US in 2016, up 101 percent from the year before. Germany and China made up most of the growth. That expansion means that the Mustang is now sold in 140 countries, with a quarter of sixth-generation Mustang sales (model year 2015 through today) shipped to customers outside the US. Beginning with the 2018 Mustang, the car will go on sale in six additional countries including Brazil, the Palau Islands, and the Ivory Coast. Somewhat strangely, IHS wouldn’t specify what makes up a “sports car” in its rankings, nor would it give The Verge data on what the second-most popular sports car is — but it did confirm that Ford’s analysis is correct. Other sports cars that IHS tracked include the BMW 4 Series, the Nissan 370z, the Porsche 911, and the Mazda MX-5. The 2018 Mustang will be the first in decades not to have a V6 engine, but the new model will boast a new 10-speed transmission, as well as an upgraded 5-liter V8 in the Mustang GT. And, for good measure, here are a bunch of cool pictures Ford sent over of the Mustang in various countries around the world.

2017 Ford Cars Perhaps best known for icons like the F-Series truck line and Mustang sports car, Ford has more recently made a major push to down-size its vehicles with cars like the Focus and Fiesta. Smaller engines are also part of the mix with new EcoBoost technology using both direct-injection and turbocharging. The Blue Oval is also trending away from SUVs and towards crossovers, like the Explorer, Esape, Edge and Flex. Hybridsand electric vehicles are also catching on at Ford with the C-Max, Focus EV and Fusion hybrids all gaining popularity. Founded by Henry Ford in 1903, the Ford Motor Company is credited for introducing the assembly line as a way of mass-producing vehicles, including the Model T. Despite selling off the brands years ago, Ford continues to own a small stake in Mazda and Aston Martin.
