It seems that no one can with the fireproof Ford Mustang . The American pony car has been chaining successes since it became a global model, running as the best-selling sports car on the planet.

For five consecutive years the Ford Mustang has positioned itself as the best-selling sports car in the world. What makes it sweeter is that Ford Mustang celebrates its 56th birthday. What better gift than to celebrate it with another year on top on the 56th Mustang Day.

In fact there are two reasons to cheer. Besides being the world’s best-selling sports car for fifth year straight, the iconic Mustang won another global sales crown, earning the world’s best-selling sports coupe title as well. Born in 1964, Ford Mustang is also America’s best-selling sports car of the last 50 years.

“We’re proud of our growing Mustang stable and performance variants," said Jim Farley, chief operating officer, Ford Motor Company. “From Sweden to Shanghai, more and more driving enthusiasts are enjoying the feeling of freedom and the American open road in these new Mustangs. We are honoured to serve our owners, enthusiasts and fans for 56 years and counting."

The Ford Mustang has been an outstanding success ever since it was launched on April 17, 56 years ago. This year, a new member of the Mustang family is coming. The fully electric SUV Ford Mustang Mach-E with up to 600 kilometres range will lead the legendary pony into the electric age.

Thousands pre-ordered the electric car before they had even seen it. And it will live perfectly side by side with the Mustang that came 56 years ago, said Ford Motor Norway CEO Per Gunnar Berg.
