Ford Mustang Continues To Be The Worlds Best-selling Sports Coupe
For the fourth year running ,the iconic Ford Mustang takes home the crown as the top-selling sports coupe in the world. In 2018, Ford sold 113,066 units of the Mustang across 146 different countries, grabbing a market share of 15.4 per cent in the global sports car segment.

Speaking about the success of the model, Jim Farley, President-Global Markets, Ford said:
“We broke the mold when Ford launched the Mustang 55 years ago. Nothing says freedom, the wind in your hair and the joy of driving like Mustang; it’s an icon. The roar of its V8 on a spring day, there’s nothing better. No wonder it’s the most popular sports coupe in the world.”
Ford sells the Mustang in 146 markets across the globe. Since 2015, Ford has sold more than 500,000 units of the sixth-generation Mustang.
In the international markets, the Ford Mustang is sold with three engine options – a 2.3-litre Four-Cylinder Ecoboost engine, a 3.7-litre V6 motor and the range-topping 5.0-litre V8 engine.
The newly unveiled 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost High Performance package comes with a 2.3-litre turbo-charged petrol engine,producing 330 horsepower.
Ford says these engine upgrades will result in a 0-60 mph run in the mid-4-second range and a top speed of 155 mph.
