Title of World’s Best-Selling Sports Coupe Goes to Ford Mustang

World’s Best-Selling Sports Coupe

The Ford Mustang has grown to become one of the most recognizable vehicles around the globe, which is why it comes as no surprise that it was recently named the world’s best-selling sports coupe for the third year in a row.

According to Ford analysis, the Mustang saw a total of 125,809 registrations in 2017. This data, which was compiled by the government and captured 95% of global new vehicle volumes in more than 80 countries, shows that the ‘Stang has pulled ahead of its worldwide competition.

“The world loves Ford Mustang,” said Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst. “For years, Mustang was unobtainable for customers on most parts of the planet. It could be found on TV or the interior, and now it rolls down streets from Beijing to Sao Paulo.”

These 125,809 Ford Mustangs that were sold last year were sold across 146 countries. Of that number 81,866 were sold in the United States, which means over one-third of all Mustang registrations were in export markets. The iconic pony car saw a particularly strong demand in China, which boasted 7,125 registrations, making it the best-selling sports coupe in that country as well.

It also looks like the most popular configuration around the globe is the Mustang GT that comes equipped with the 5.0-liter V8.
