Production of the RHD model line is officially under way at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan, continuing the car's first-ever global launch since the nameplate made its debut as a Lee Iacocca-championed 1964-1/2 model year spinoff of the Falcon compact.
This is the first year the Mustang has been offered to buyers in over 100 markets around the world - including those where [we - ed] have the temerity drive on the left side of the road.
The addition of RHD models allows exports to over 25 markets including the UK, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Cyprus, Malta and a smattering of Caribbean islands. Ford did RHD Explorer and Taurus models for some of these markets in the mid-90s but sales did not meet expectations and the RHD models were dropped. This time around, the Edge SUV is also being made with RHD."
