1. Domestic Production
(1) March 2008
The domestic production volume for March 2008 increased 15.1% over the same month last year due to additional production of the Mazda2 for the European market and increased production of the Mazda6 (known as the Atenza in Japan), CX-9 and CX-7.

(2) FY2007
The fiscal year domestic production volume exceeded that of the previous year, up 8.2% over FY2006. This was mainly due to additional production of the Mazda2 for Europe and increased production of the Mazda3 (Axela), CX-7 and CX-9.

2. Overseas Production
(1) March 2008

(2) FY2007
Although production of the Mazda6, Mazda3, and Tribute was healthy, total overseas production in FY2007 was below the figure for FY2006, down 16.8%, due to the end of production of Familia and Premacy models in China since FAW Haima established itself as an independent brand.
