Ford Mus­tang is the world’s best-sell­ing sports car

The Province - - DRIVING - — Nick Tragianis

Once lim­ited to North Amer­ica, the Ford Mus­tang is now the world’s best-sell­ing sports car.

Ac­cord­ing to new ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion data from IHS Markit, Mus­tang sales jumped to more than 150,000 units glob­ally — small pota­toes com­pared to the Toy­ota Corol­las of the world, but it rep­re­sents a six per cent jump over 2015.

The key to the Mus­tang’s suc­cess? Sell­ing it around the globe, be­cause ap­par­ently, the rest of the world loves burly mus­cle cars. Al­though U.S. sales were slightly down, Ger­many and China had par­tic­u­larly strong ap­petites for the Mus­tang.

And once the re­freshed 2018 Mus­tang rolls out, Ford plans to in­tro­duce it to six new mar­kets, in­clud­ing Brazil, the Ivory Coast and Palau.
