The Ford Mustang was the best-selling two-door sportscar in the world in 2015, according to Ford’s analysis of new vehicle registration data gathered by IHS Automotive. About 110,000 Ford Mustang coupes, and roughly 30,000 convertibles, were sold throughout 2015.
“U.S. consumers have enjoyed interesting foreign sports cars for decades, so it was time for the Americans to return the favor with the worldwide launch of the new Mustang,” said Ford Sales Analyst Erich Merkle. “Global markets have responded in a huge way. Ford Mustang was the only sports coupe in the world with more than 100,000 units registered last year.”
It’s important to note that this data is only for new registrations; unfilled orders aren’t being counted here, meaning that in countries like the UK and Australia where demand is high and availability low, thousands of sales haven’t been able to count toward the Ford Mustang’s success. The Ford Mustang sold in numbers of about 13,000 in Europe last year; of those orders, just 4,700 have been filled.
The Ford Mustang was the best-selling sports coupe in China during the fourth quarter of 2015. This year, it was the best-selling sports coupe in both Germany and France through the month of March. And lest we forget about the pony car’s birthplace, 12,563 examples of the Ford Mustang were sold in the US through March; more than the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger combined.
