Through the first half of 2014, Ford sales in China were up 35 percent thanks to the ever-increasing popularity of models such as the Focus, Mondeo, and EcoSport. Greater availability of the next-gen Mustang will not only allow Ford to improve these figures and increase their profile with younger drivers, but it will also serve the purpose of upstaging the rival Camaro, which is officially available in-country.
Full production on the 2015 Mustang is expected to begin in September, and the exportation of the 2015 Mustang to China should begin in the first quarter of 2015. More details are sure to be announced in the coming months.
