1. Domestic Production
Increased production of the all-new Mazda2, and a rise in Mazda3 production to meet steady global sales demand, led to a 2.0% rise in overall domestic production compared with August 2007.

Mazda3: 31,195 units (up 6.2% year-on-year)
Mazda2: 11,652 units (up 145.6% year-on-year)

 

2. Overseas production
Although production of the Mazda3 was steady, total overseas production in August 2007 was down 20.6% year-on-year due to the end of production of Familia and Premacy models in China.

 

[Overseas production of key models in July 2007]

Despite strong sales of the all-new Mazda2/Demio, domestic sales were below the same period last year, down 6.3%, mainly due to a decrease in commercial vehicle sales.

On a market basis, exports to Europe were particularly healthy at 21,460 units, a 42.6% year-on-year increase, mainly due to the addition of Mazda2 exports and increased exports of Mazda3 thanks to steady sales.
