Australia Facing A 10-Month Wait For The Ford Mustang

Since Ford Motor Company decided to develop and market a right-hand drive version of the new 2015 Ford Mustang, making the pony car a global product for the first time in its 50-year history, interest in RHD markets has been fierce. Back in May of this year, the first 500 European units of the new Ford Mustang were reserved just as soon as the lines opened, within about 30 seconds.

It’s unsurprising, then, that Australia is already facing a bit of a Ford Mustang shortage; while deliveries are set to start in December of this year, the pony car is already sold out through August or September of 2016, according to Australia’s Drive. That’s due to just over 3,000 paid orders having been placed for the new, global pony car.

Additionally, according to Ford Australia chief Graeme Whickman, the Ford Mustang has received expressions of interest from over 15,000 Australian motorists.

According to Drive, the Ford Mustang GT with 5.0-liter Coyote V8 is the most popular model, representing 85 to 90 percent of all Australian orders. Mr. Whickman is expecting to see orders for the EcoBoost-equipped Ford Mustang increase in the future, though.
