New Mustang US Export

Creating an opportunity for importers.

The newly redesigned Mustang is the best selling sports car in both Europe and Australia. Ford is selling more Mustangs than the new Audi TT, and more than any of Porsche's sports cars in Germany. In Australia, it went on to outsell the local Holden brand for the first time since 1999. They are selling so well in fact, that Ford is out of Mustangs for the export market.

Classic Mustang US Export

The success of the Mustang overseas was a long time coming. While Ford has never built Mustangs specifically for the export market, US car exporters have been shipping thousands of them to customers overseas. In 2015, over 5,000 Mustangs were shipped in containers to Europe, Australia and the Middle East. The majority of the exports were previously classic Mustangs, until Ford released the 6th generation model which was built with the export market in mind.

Australian models were built with right-hand drive as standard. And in the UK, it marked the first time in 52 years that the cars were available from the local Ford dealerships.For China, the Mustang received smaller engine options in order to combat expensive import duties. The new Mustang suddenly became one of the most desirable cars overseas.
