For the first time in its 50-year history, the Ford Mustang is going global. That means that customers in over 100 markets all over the world will be able to purchase the celebrated pony car, starting with the 2015 Mustang. And just this past week, Ford loaded some of the new ponies on to a ship headed to Asia.
The news comes on the heels of Ford beginning to take orders for the 2015 Mustang in Europe, where the pony is scheduled to arrive in the middle of the year (and just in time for summertime fun).
Global availability of the Mustang translates to higher production and sales of the pony car. That, in turn, results in increased production activity at Ford’s Flat Rock, Michigan manufacturing facility, which serves as the only plant in the world that makes the Mustang. And that goes on to make for some very welcome news for the plant and its workers.
