For the third year in a row, the Ford Mustang claims the title of the world's best-selling sports coupe. It's understandable given their huge presence in the United States and the expansion into other markets across the globe (especially with this current generation model). Just last year, Ford managed to move 125,809 units of the Mustang across 146 countries.
81,666 units were, as expected, registered in the United States. Of the remaining units, 13,100 of them were sold in Europe, which brings the total number to 35,000 since 2015. China in particular managed to contribute 7,125 units to the total figure, which is expected to pick up in the coming years.
Since exports for the Mustang began in 2015, Ford has managed to sell 418,000 Mustangs globally - the most popular of which being the Mustang GT with its 5.0-litre V8. The qualification for being the best-selling sports coupe is defined by IHS Markit to include both two-door and convertible models.
