The Ford Mustang is set to have its Indian-market launch on July 13th, according to Indian website ZigWheels. This is the first generation of the Ford Mustang with a factory right-hand drive option, making the pony car suddenly available to dozens of new global markets.
The Indian market first got acquainted with the Ford Mustang at this year’s Indian Auto Expo back in February. According to ZigWheels, only the V8-powered Mustang GT will be sold in India, possibly because import costs would render the four-cylinder EcoBoost model too expensive to entice buyers. By the sound of it, the Indian-market Ford Mustang will be available only with a six-speed automatic transmission, although it will reportedly come with a standard performance package.
As for pricing, we’ve seen estimates run the gamut from 50 to 95 lakh (about $74k to $141k US), so we’re unsure what to expect. Here in the United States, the starting price for the 2017 Ford Mustang GT is a mere $32,645, so we would guess it will start toward the lower end of that range in India. Regardless, it should significantly undercut any rival two-door sports coupes from Germany.
