(2) January through December 2006
For the first time since 2004, the overseas production volume exceeded that of the same period in the previous year, up 13.4% for January through December 2006.

On a country basis, production in China grew to 145,198 units, up 34.6% over the previous year due to brisk demand for the Familia/323 and Mazda6.
