Mazda Reports Record-Breaking May Sales
So far, 2021 has been a good year for Mazda. The automaker recently reported an all-time record high of 42,187 sales from the month of May, marking a 69.2 percent increase compared to May of 2020. Similarly, Mazda has sold 156,562 units so far this year, which is 58.4 percent up from last year’s figures by the same date. May sales of Certified Pre-Owned models also saw an uptick of 10 percent compared to last year. While that may not sound like much, it was enough to get May 2021 into the record books as Mazda’s best May ever of CPO sales.
