Mazda Celebrates July Sales Joy


Mazda Australia has posted its best ever July result with 7,951 new cars sold last month and remains on target for another record-breaking year.

According to VFACTS figures released today, last month's result beat Mazda's previous best July total, set in 2010, by more than 600 vehicles. The result is almost 14 per cent ahead of the same month last year.

Mazda's Year-To-Date (YTD) sales performance remains on record pace, having sold 60,084 cars through to July 31, an increase of 18.3 per cent on last year. Mazda has 9.5 per cent market share.

The Mazda3 maintained its place as Australia's number one car, with 3,355 sold in July and 25,168 so far this year – giving the stylish model an 18.2 per cent share of the small car under $40,000 segment.

The All-New Mazda CX-5 again topped the Medium SUV segment with 1,483 sales. So far this year, Australian new cars buyers have taken home 8,040 CX-5s.

The enduring appeal of the Mazda2 saw Mazda's little hatch notch up its 38th consecutive month of more than 1000 sales, securing 1272 retails last month.

Sales figures for the Mazda BT-50 also continued to rise. July's result of 1,011 is the fifth time this year the BT-50 utility has sold over 1,000 vehicles in a month. Year-to-date sales of 4x4 variants of BT-50 have increased by 95 per cent.

With the Mazda2, Mazda3, CX-5 and the BT-50 all selling strongly, Mazda is looking forward to further strong sales and market growth with the addition of new models including the upcoming All-New Mazda6.

Mazda Australia Managing Director, Doug Dickson said, "We are delighted with customer support for our whole Mazda range. And there is more to come with an all-new Mazda6 arriving next year to keep the momentum going."
