The domestic production volume for September 2007 exceeded the figure for the same month last year, up 5.8% compared to September 2006. This increase was mainly due to healthy sales of the Mazda2 (Demio in Japan) and Mazda3 (Axela).

Mazda3 (Axela): 208,902 units (up 15.3% year-on-year)

The overseas production volume was below the figure for the same month last year, down 4.3% on September 2006, mainly due to the end of production of the second generation Mazda2 at the Valencia plant in Spain and the end of Familia and Premacy production in China since FAW Haima established its own original brand.

(1) September 2007
Domestic sales of the Mazda2 (Demio in Japan) and Mazda5 (Premacy) were healthy due to the new model effect. However, September 2007 domestic sales were 3.9% lower than last year’s result due to a decrease in sales of registered commercial vehicles and the Mazda6 (Atenza).
Mazda’s registered vehicle market share was 6.4%, up 0.3 points over the same period last year, with a 3.2% share of the micro-mini segment (up 0.3 points) and a 5.3% total market share (up 0.3 points over September 2006).
