1. Domestic Production
(1) December 2007

The domestic production volume for December 2007 exceeded the figure for the same month last year, up 8.7% compared to December 2006. This increase was mainly due to the addition of Mazda2 (Demio in Japan) production for the European market and increased production of the Mazda3 (Axela), Mazda MX-5 (Roadster) and CX-7.

 

[Domestic production of key models in December 2007]

Mazda2 (Demio): 15,643 units (up 215.8% year-on-year)
Mazda3 (Axela): 33,876 units (up 1.5% year-on-year)
MX-5 (Roadster): 4,279 units (up 14.1% year-on-year)
CX-7: 6,363 units (up 14.3% year-on-year)

 

(2) January through December 2007
The domestic production volume for the period January through December exceeded the figure for the same period in 2006, up 3.0%. This was mainly due to increased production of the Mazda3 (Axela), CX-7, CX-9 and the transfer of Mazda2 (Demio) production for the European market to Japan in July 2007.

 

[Domestic production of key models in the period from January through December 2007]

Mazda2 (Demio): 121,226 units (up 66.6% year-on-year)

2. Overseas production
(1) December 2007

The overseas production volume was below the figure for the same month last year, down 9.5% on December 2006, despite healthy production of the Mazda6, Mazda3, and Mazda2.

The overseas production volume for January through December 2007 was below the figure for the same period in 2006, down by 15.6% year-on-year, despite healthy production of the Mazda3 and BT-50. This is attributable mainly to the end of Familia and Premacy production in China since FAW established itself as an independent brand.
