Global best-seller for fifth year running with over 100,000 sold last year alone
On its 56th birthday the Ford Mustang confirms its place as the world’s favourite sports car. The sixth generation Mustang has sold 633,000 units since it was introduced in 2015 in 146 countries – last year alone it sold 102,090. (See my feature on the best Fords ever on DriveTribe at this link.)
This makes it officially the world’s best-selling sports car and the world’s best-selling sports coupe for the fifth year running. Mustang is also America’s best-selling sports car of the last 50 years.
Mustang sold 102,090 units, according to the most recent new vehicle registration data from IHS Markit, making it the best-selling sports car in the world in 2019. During this period, Mustang sales in Germany increased 33 per cent, in Poland sales rose by nearly 50 per cent, and in France, they nearly doubled.
The year 2019 also marks the fifth consecutive year that Mustang was the best-selling sports coupe in the world. Sports coupes, as defined by IHS Markit, include two-door and convertible models.
Ford sold 9,900 Mustangs in Europe during 2019, a 3% increase year-on-year, with 1,300 sold in the UK.
