The Mustang brand has long been popular all across the globe, but now that the car is for sale worldwide its supreme popularity is confirmed. According to IHS Markit global automotive registration data, the Mustang was the top-selling car in the sports car segment for 2016 with over 150,000 cars sold.

“The legacy of Mustang continues to grow, and in places it never reached before,” Mark Schaller, Ford Mustang marketing manager, said. “We continue to make it available in new markets, and drivers in those markets continue to respond with resounding approval.”
Expanding Mustang sales to large global markets like Germany and China, as well as several smaller nations (see infographic below), helped fuel that sales growth. Obviously it’s a hit, as the 2016 Mustang sales in China, for example, were up by over 74 percent, while in Europe 15,000 units have been sold.

With a new Mustang refresh on deck for later this year, it will be interesting to see if the 2018 Mustang can continue this global momentum as it availability expands to six new countries, including Brazil, the Palau Islands and the Ivory Coast.
