Ford Mustang Is The Best Selling Sports Car In The World, Again

Sales

Hat-trick for the boys in blue.

For the third year running the Ford Mustang takes home the crown as the top-selling sports coupe in the world. The Blue Oval delivered 125,809 Mustangs to new homes, scattered across 146 different countries. In fact, according to IHS Markit global light vehicle registration data, in 2017, more than one-third of the Mustang’s sales came from export markets in Europe and Asia, leaving the United States responsible for more than 80,000 sales.

“The world is falling in love with Mustang,” says Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst. “Mustang represents the best of American design, performance, and freedom, with an unmistakable personality that appeals – regardless of your postcode.” One market with that remains particularly strong is China, where the Mustang was easily the best selling sports coupe last year based on 7,125 registrations.
