Mazda's production and sales results for October 2006 show that domestic production has exceeded that for the same month in the previous year for 12 consecutive months since November 2005.

Domestic sales volumes for October 2006 were down 18.8% on October 2005. This is attributable to steady sales of the Mazda3 and Verisa being offset by decreased sales of commercial vehicles and the aging of the current Mazda2 model. Mazda's registered vehicle market share in Japan was 5.2% (down 0.8 points from October 2005) with a 2.3% share of the micro-mini segment (down 0.6 points year-on-year) and a 4.2% total market share (down 0.8 points from the same month last year).
