Company sold sold approximately 110,000 Mustang coupes last year.

Ford recently revealed the Mustang was best-selling sports car in Germany and it appears that trend is happening across the globe as the automaker has announced the pony car was the top-selling sports coupe worldwide in 2015.

Citing registration data from IHS Automotive, Ford says it sold approximately 110,000 Mustang coupes and 30,000 Mustang convertibles last year.  Since the Mustang was the only sports coupe to sell more than 100,000 units worldwide in 2015, the car was "far and away the best-selling two-door sports car in the world."

Ford notes this is an impressive achievement as Mustang had limited availability in key markets such as China and the United Kingdom.  More interestingly, the Mustang was sold out through 2017 in Australia before the company increased the country's allotment of cars.

Closer to home, Ford sold 12,563 Mustangs last month in the United States which means it beat the combined sales of both the Chevrolet Camaro and the Dodge Challenger.  The Mustang is also a hit in Canada as it has outsold the Camaro every year since 1985.  This is particularly interesting as the previous-generation Camaro was built in Oshawa, Ontario.

In a statement, Ford sales analyst Erich Merkle said "... much of the growth in Mustang demand in the United States has come from coastal markets – especially Southern California – and millennials opting for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, [but] buyers in other countries prefer the V8."  This is particularly true in Australia and New Zealand where more than 90 percent of buyers are opting for the 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 435 horsepower.
