The Ford Mustang has reached a major milestone. For the first time in its 50-year history, the Ford Mustang exports globally. Specifically designed for international markets, the Ford Mustang is now being exported from Ford’s plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, to 100 markets worldwide.
The first shipments are headed to Asia, and each Mustang is carefully prepared to withstand the harsh and demanding conditions of transport. About 100 jobs have been added at the Port of Portland, a primary shipping port for Ford and Lincoln vehicles China- and Korea-bound. According to USAToday.com, first shipments of Ford Mustangs are expected to arrive mid-year.
“Preparing these vehicles for shipment to their final destination is critical to satisfying both customer and regulatory requirements for our markets around the world,” said Gerald Schoenle, director of Ford Trading. “We want our customers globally to know that their Ford vehicles will meet emissions, safety and road-worthiness requirements.”
To meet the needs of several right-hand driving markets, Ford has also developed a right-hand Mustang. The right-hand Mustang will make its way to 25 right-hand driving countries, including Great Britain, Australia, and South Africa.
