Now that the 2015 Mustang’s major cats are out of the bag, Ford has shared that final testing is being done for the right-hand-drive export version.
Ford’s new 2015 Mustang will be on sale around the world as a true global car. Thus very soon production for over 120 countries begins, including for the first time, a right-hand-drive version.
There are actually some twenty five markets where a right-hand-drive car is needed. The larger of them of course include the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa.
The importance of adding a right-hand-drive 2015 Mustang is key to allowing the pony car to be exported to these countries where they can be licensed and sold as a regular production car.
For decades in like Australia, Mustangs have been converted to right-hand-drive by local companies at great expense, making them a grey market novelty. This move will make America’s pony car more mainstream.
Ford will be proving out various aspects of the right-hand-drive 2015 Mustang before production begins on the global export models early next year.
