1. Domestic Production
Although Mazda increased production of the fully redesigned Mazda2/Demio and saw added production of the CX-9, the overall domestic production volume for July 2007 was down 4.0% compared with July 2006. This was mainly due to the suspension of production caused by the Chuetsu Oki earthquake in Niigata prefecture.

 

[Domestic production of key models in July 2007]

Mazda2: 9,766 units (up 43.5% year-on-year)
CX-9: 5,094 units

 

2. Overseas production
Overseas production of the Mazda3 saw an increase. However, total overseas production in July 2007 was down 23.3% year-on-year, mainly due to the end of second generation Mazda2 production at the Valencia plant.

 

[Overseas production of key models in July 2007]

Sales of passenger vehicles increased year-on-year due to strong sales of the all-new Mazda2. Total domestic sales were below the same period last year, down 3.7% over July 2006, mainly due to a decrease in commercial vehicle sales. Mazda’s registered vehicle market share was 6.1%, up 0.3 points over July 2006, with a 2.7% share of the micro-mini segment (up 0.3 points) and a 4.9% total market share, up 0.3 points over the same month last year.

Despite an increase in exports of the all-new Mazda2 to Europe and CX-9 exports, July 2007 exports were down 10.3% on July 2006. This was as a result of reduced Mazda6 and Mazda5 exports.
On a market basis, exports to Europe were healthy, reaching 25,662 units (up 13.9%) mainly due to added Mazda2 and CX-7 exports.

 

[Exports of key models in July 2007]

Mazda2: 2,854 units (up 255.0% year-on-year)
CX-9: 4,846 units
