Ford’s decision to offer the venerable Mustang in more markets (including Malaysia) has proved to be a good one, as the iconic pony car has been named the best-selling sports car in the world in 2016. This is according to IHS Markit global automotive registration data in the sports car segment.

According to the Blue Oval, over 150,000 Mustangs were sold last year, which was a 6% increase from 2015. From that total, 45,000 units were sold in markets outside the United States, representing a growth of 101% from international markets.

The Mustang is now sold in 140 countries, and Ford has plans to add another six more countries to that long list. This includes Brazil, the Palau Islands and the Ivory Coast, with three additional markets to be announced later. Not bad, considering 2016 is the second year of Ford officially exporting the Mustang to markets outside the U.S.

Ford also notes that since its decision to begin Mustang exports in 2015, a total of 98,000 units have made their way to customers outside its home country. The amount is part of 395,000 units of the sixth-generation Mustang that have been produced at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant since 2015.

The Mustang has been updated for the 2018 model year, which sees a revision to its engine line-up, the addition of a new 10-speed automatic transmission, aesthetic upgrades as well as additional kit.
