Ford Mustang is one of the most popular sports cars in the world and now finally, it has arrived in Nepal. GO Automobiles, the official distributor of Ford Cars in Nepal, is going to soft launch Ford Mustang GT Fastback 2018 in the Nepali market on this Friday at its showroom located at Chabahil, Kathmandu. The Ford Mustang GT price in Nepal is set Rs. 1,70,00,000, (1.7 Cr) which is less than what we expected.
Ford Mustang had first been seen in 2017 NADA Auto Show. It had proved to be the showstopper of the event. The iconic Mustang was said to be available for sale before the end of 2017 in the Nepali market, however, it has been released now in Nepal. Mustang GT had an expected price tag of 2.5 Cr at NADA Auto Show of 2017.
Ford Mustang has not been further modified or change in order to make it compatible with the roads of Nepal. It is the same Mustang that is present in the market of USA. It is probably the first muscle car to enter in the Nepali market.
Questions may arise how could Mustang GT not be as expensive as it should be and where have the company cut off in order to minimize the price. According to Suman Regmi, the marketing manager of Ford Nepal, the pricing is one of the major factors that is considered by customers while buying a car. People here in Nepal mostly tend to convert the pricing of the car present in India in order to predict pricing of the vehicle in Nepal. In order to make Ford Mustang GT more affordable for our customers, we directly imported it from the USA and not from India.
Currently, only one Mustang has arrived in Nepal and is already been sold. In a few months, five more Mustang will be arriving in the Nepali market. If you have been thinking to buy Ford Mustang, here’s a bad news for you as all the five Mustang which is arriving in upcoming shipment is already booked. However, the good news is that customers can now pre-book Mustang which will be arriving in afterward shipment.
