Since its launch in India last month, the Ford Mustang has already gone on to become the best-selling sportscar in the country for 2016, according to the Deccan Chronicle. A total of 35 units were sold and shipped last month, and it sounds as though the country’s entire 2016 allotment of 100 Ford Mustang examples has already been spoken for.
The Ford Mustang in India is priced at Rs 65 lakh in Delhi – nearly $100k US – and is available exclusively as a V8-powered “GT” model with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Indian-market pony car comes standard with the Performance Pack, and Line Lock has been left accessible from the Track Apps menu unlike in Australia, where Ford had to remove the feature.
The total of 35 examples of the Ford Mustang sold and delivered in India so far certainly doesn’t sound like a lot, but the Deccan Chronicle reports that the pony car’s natural competitors in the country have all sold around 5 to 10 units year-to-date, making the ‘Stang several times more successful.
The current, sixth-generation Ford Mustang was the best-selling two-door sportscar worldwide in 2015, being the only sports coupe to break 100,000 new registrations globally.
