In addition, for fiscal year 2005, Mazda's domestic production, domestic sales and exports exceeded the figures from the previous year due to healthy demand for its new models and commercial vehicles.

Mazda's registered vehicle market share was 5.7% (down -0.6 points compared to March 2005), with a 2.6% (-0.1 points) for microminis segment and a 4.7% (-0.4 points) total domestic market share.
(2) Fiscal Year 2005
For the fourth consecutive year since 2002, total domestic sales increased, up 0.3% from the prior year. This reflects the strong sales of the Premacy/Mazda5, Roadster/MX-5 and contributions from commercial vehicle sales.

For eight consecutive months since August 2005, exports have exceeded the figures for the same period last year, with March 2006 exports up 16.0% over March 2005. These results reflect increases in exports of new models and the Atenza/Mazda6. North America-bound Premacy/Mazda5, Roadster/MX-5 and Axela/Mazda3 models were contributors to this increase, reaching a total of 21,642 units (+35.8% compared to March 2005). Exports to Europe also increased by 9.3% to 21,900 units over the same period last year, with Premacy/Mazda5, Roadster/MX-5 and Atenza/Mazda6 models as the major contributors.
(2) Fiscal Year 2005
Exports figures for FY2005 increased for the fifth consecutive year since 2001, up 16% year-on-year. This is attributable to the steady sales of the new Premacy/Mazda5 and Roadster/MX-5 models as well as the considerable contribution of the Axela/Mazda3 to overall export volumes. Exports to North America were 219,364 units, rising 22.4% year-on-year, while European-bound exports numbered 253,672 units, for an 11.4% increase compared to FY2004.

Overseas production volumes increased for the third consecutive month since January 2006, an increase of 49.1% over the figures for the same period last year. March 2006 was an all-time record for overseas production in the month of March due to increased output volumes of Atenza/Mazda6 to be shipped to North America, Atenza/Mazda6 and Axela/Mazda3 bound for China and output for BT-50 trucks in Thailand. China-bound output volume reached 13,874 units (up 72.6% over March 2005) while North American-bound production was 7,000 units (up 25%).
(2) Fiscal Year 2005
