Ford Sold Over 15,000 Mustangs In Europe Last Year

Backing up a report from last month that the Ford Mustang was the best-selling sports car in 2016, Ford has released specific figures that detail how popular the car is proving to be in Europe.

In 2016, a total of 15,335 Mustangs were sold across Europe in what was the first full year of local sales of the sports car. The model became the single best selling sports car in France, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Finland, Greece and the Czech Republic.

In the UK, the Mustang is also very popular with 3,250 examples sold last year, placing it at the top of the sales charts for sports cars with over 250 PS.

According to vice president of Marketing, Sales & Service at Ford of Europe, Roelant de Waard said “From the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean, the Ford Mustang has topped the sports car sales charts in markets across Europe. European customers continue to play a significant role in the global success of Mustang. The iconic sports car’s popularity with drivers of all ages and backgrounds shows no sign of waning – we sold 3,600 Mustangs in the region during the first three months of 2017.”

Around the world, no less than 150,000 Mustangs were sold throughout 2016, a 6 per cent increase over 2015.

    That’s really surprising. I always thought American cars did not sell in Europe and the only place where they were popular was in Scandinavia and the cars were from the 50’s and 60’s.

      Germans love the Mustang. It outsells BMW M cars. It’s also a pretty good value. A 5.0L V8, 6-speed manual or auto, near-premium feel. It’s not quite as nice as Mondeo Vignale, although close. Hint, hint, Ford. Room for a high end Mustang that can be badged as a Lincoln Mark-something here.

      Mustang needed to switch to IRS in order to appeal to Europeans. Ford only kept the live axle in the USA to keep Carol Shelby and other muscle/pony car purists happy. All changed when Mr. Shelby passed away. Rip.

      I’m a little disappointed with the Focus to be honest. It’s a good car of course but it doesn’t look anywhere near as good as the first and second models.

      • fabri99

        Still can’t understand why they didn’t make a three-door version too. It would have looked much better in ST and RS guise…

  • Audifan

    Well very worth mentioning that Ford UK sold 3.250 units of the Mustang; Germany wasnt important to mention with 5.232 units sold last year…
