In 2020, the Ford Mustang became the world's second-equivalent sports car, marking the second consecutive year it claimed the title, the automaker announced Tuesday.
The claim was based on data provided by Fox Business, which would not reveal which other cars were included in the tally to IHS Markit.
Ford also did not respond to a request for comment on its competition, but noted that the Mustang has been the best-selling sports coupe for the past six years.
An IHS Markit spokeswoman said that coupe is a subset of its sports car segment that has 2 or 3 doors, but in exceptional cases may also have 4 or 5.
What is clear is that Ford sold 80,577 Mustangs around the world last year, which was down from 102,090 in 2019 but represented a Sports coupe market share increase from 14.8% to 15.1%.
