Where in the World Is the Mustang Sold?Last Updated August 8, 2023 | C.J. Tragakis
The Ford Mustang is a global icon with over 10 million cars produced. Since 1964, the pony car has been an incredibly popular model in the United States. It represents the American ideal of a stylish sports car that’s available to the masses.
The Mustang’s popularity in America made it quickly available in international markets. In 2018, Ford declared that the Mustang was the best-selling sports coupe in the world for the fourth consecutive year. It continues to be sold in more countries each year, too.
Check out the maps and graphs below to see where in the world you can buy a new 2020 Ford Mustang.
There are 144 countries in the world that have official Ford locations or an authorized Ford retailer. This means you can buy a Ford in 74% of all countries in the world.
In total, we count 111 countries where the Mustang is sold. This means you can buy a Mustang in 57% of all countries in the world. That number is lower than the 146 that Ford boasts on its media site (for 2018) though. This could be due to differences in how they define a country. Also, Ford is likely counting special imports into certain countries. We only counted countries where you could walk into an authorized Ford dealership and buy a Mustang.
Factoring in population, an astounding 72% of all people in the world could buy a 2020 Mustang.
Canada and Mexico were some of the first places after the U.S. to see the Mustang. Somewhat ironically, the first Mustang ever sold was (unintentionally) delivered in Canada. They’ve remained steadfast markets for the car ever since. Sadly, the Mustang is no longer available in St. Kitts & Nevis or St. Vincent & the Grenadines, though our research shows it was in 2019.
The Mustang is available in most South American countries and was recently released in Venezuela. Some countries that used to have authorized Ford retailers only now fall under the Ford corporate umbrella with their own country-specific webpages.
Even though strict emissions laws make the EcoBoost a more economical choice in the E.U., you’ll still see lots of enthusiasts driving Mustang GTs. Moldova now has the Mustang available! Europe is also home to the smallest and least populous country where you can buy a Mustang, Monaco. Russia still lists the Mustang as “coming soon,” with no timeline for release.
Most of the countries that offer Mustangs in Africa are south of the Sahara. With over 58 million people, Tanzania is the most populous country in Africa to offer the Mustang. Unfortunately, Morocco no longer offers the Mustang for 2020.
The Asia-Pacific region is an interesting one when it comes to Mustang availability. Some countries, such as Papua New Guinea, only have trucks and SUVs from Ford. Singapore, on the other hand, only has the Mustang and Ranger. 2020 marks the first year that the Mustang is available in Malaysia and Vanuatu!
Australia/ New Zealand
The Mustang is popular in Australia, which is no stranger to big V8 cars. In fact, a limited edition supercharged Mustang R-Spec was released by Ford of Australia in 2019. Australia is the farthest place you can be on Earth from Dearborn, Michigan, but you can still buy a Mustang there.

How We Got Our Data
We used the most accurate and up-to-date data available at the time of publication. Data was gathered using Ford's global page for individual countries. We then checked every country on the UN's list of 195 self-governing states to see which had authorized Ford dealerships.
For population numbers, Taiwan, Macau, and Hong Kong were included with China, and Puerto Rico and Guam were included with the United States. This is because the Mustang is available in all of these areas, and because statistically it helped bring our global population coverage to over 99.9%
We do not have data for the remaining ~0.01% of the world population from the following regions and territories which are not UN-recognized as self-governing (however, the Mustang is probably only sold in a handful of these at most):
American Samoa, Anguilla, Aruba, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands, Curacao, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, French Guiana, French Polynesia, Gibraltar, Greenland, Guadeloupe, Isle of Man, Martinique, Mayotte, Montserrat, New Caledonia, Niue, Northern Mariana Islands, Reunion, Saint Maarten, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Tokelau, Turks and Caicos Islands, United States Virgin Islands, Wallis and Futuna, and Western Sahara.
Other small territories, such as the British Crown dependencies of Guernsey and Jersey, were also not included.
