Ford Engineers are hard at work fine tuning the first-ever production right-hand-drive Mustang in preparation for the car’s launch in 25 new RHD markets. The interest in the new Mustang in countries like Britain, Australia and South Africa has been high enough for Ford to go through the trouble of making a RHD version.
The first prototype right-hand-drive Mustang has been constructed and is currently undergoing various development tests to make sure the different layout of the cabin and steering gear has not messed things up. The sixth generation Mustang will be the first iteration of car that is a truly global product, going on sale in over 120 markets worldwide.
America remains the largest market for Mustang with more than 9.2 million sales since the car’s debut in 1964. Other markets are catching up, quickly adding to the 161,000 Mustangs that have been sold overseas during the past 50 years. In Europe, especially, the new ‘Stang is selling like hot cakes, with the first 500 units pre-sold online in just 30 seconds.
The sale of 2015 Ford Mustang will begin in America this fall. It will gradually reach other markets towards the end of the year.
