Mazda has broken its all-time sales record having sold 94,332 new cars, utilities and SUVs to the end of November, according to VFACTS figures released recently.
In its best November ever, Mazda sold 8,732 new vehicles to pass its previous best annual total of 88,333 set in 2011.
Mazda’s sales Year-To-Date (YTD) are up 16.5%; it has a strong 9.3 per cent market share maintaining its position as the country’s third best-selling automotive brand and the number one full-line importer.
Mazda3 again led the way with 3,703 November sales to top the small car segment and remain the country’s favourite car with an annual tally of 39,479, only 1,951 sales are needed in December to give Mazda3 it’s best ever year annual result.
An on-going sales success story, the Mazda2 sold 1,561 new cars last month, to lead the charge in the competitive light car segment. Like its bigger sibling, the Mazda3, it is on pace to better its best-ever year in 2011 when it sold 17,501 cars.
Mazda CX-5 sales show no sign of abating, with 1,637 new SUVs finding homes in November as it approaches 15,000 sales in 2012. CX-5 was the country’s most popular medium SUV last month and when combining CX-5 sales figures with CX-7, Mazda tops the segment.
BT-50 also continues to sell strongly with a total of 893 sales in November taking the YTD tally to 10,946.
This is a mere 80 units short of the BT-50’s best ever sales year, set back in 2009 and December is expected to bring the stylish utility a new annual sales record.
