Mazda June Sales Are Best in a Decade
Mazda June sales were the highest that the company has seen in 10 whole years. Mazda’s U.S. sales totaled 26,208 vehicles, good for a 16.5 percent increase over 2013’s sales figures.
“June was a strong month for Mazda, the best we have seen since 2004. The economy has remained steady despite a lot of uncertainty overseas,” said Ron Stettner, vice president of sales, MNAO. “We received strong sales performance from our top three carlines of Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5. This is the first time in history that Mazda has had three model lines with great sales performance.”
The biggest gainer in Mazda June sales was the Mazda2, which increased its June 2013 sales by 183 percent. In moving 2,103 units in June, the Mazda2 closed out a sterling first half of 2014 where it has increased its year-to-date sales by 42.2 percent over 2013.
The volume leader for Mazda was the Mazda3, good for a 16.6 percent year-over-year increase and that model’s best June since 2012. The CX-5 enjoyed its best June ever with 7,943 units sold, putting it up 32.1 percent through the first six months of the year.
The Mazda6 was also solid in June with 4,793 models sold, good for a 24.8 percent year-over-year increase. Through the first half of the year, sales of the Mazda6 are up 24.2 percent.
Other highlights of Mazda June sales are SKYACTIV vehicles—which accounted for 82.3 percent of all sales—and Mazda CPOs, which were up 4 percent.
