May Mazda Sales Increase 22.5 Percent
May Mazda sales totaled 28,731 vehicles, which amounts to a 22.5 percent year-over-year increase and the best month of May for the company in 18 years. Year-to-date, Mazda has sold 130,223 vehicles in the United States, up 6.4 percent over its total from the first five months of 2013.
“Despite the economy being anyone’s guess these days, with GDP down and durable goods orders off, we see consumer confidence looking strong and shoppers turning into buyers, and the proof of this is the results we saw across the industry with May sales,” said Ron Stettner, VP, Sales for MNAO. “At Mazda, Memorial Day was huge for us, and we feared a slowdown toward the end of the month that never happened.”
Highlights for Mazda included the Mazda2, which moved 1,294 units and was up 63.6 percent year-over-year; the Mazda3, of which 10,682 were sold for a 19.6 percent increase; the CX-5, which accounted for 9,291 units sold and a 30.3 year-over-year increase; and the Mazda6, which was up 38.5 percent with 5,461 units sold.
The Mazda3 enjoyed its best May since 2010, the Mazda6 had its best May since 2006, and the CX-5 coasted to its best May ever.
