IRVINE, Calif., December 3, 2007 - Following three consecutive months of double-digit sales increases, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today reported a 1.0 percent decrease in sales for November with 20,580 vehicles sold. Mazda's year-to-date sales remain strong with 271,181 units sold, accounting for a 9.0 percent increase.
"Housing uncertainties, rising fuel prices and sagging consumer confidence all year long have finally conspired to slow Mazda's winning pace," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. "Three consecutive months of double-digit increases, driven primarily by increased availability of MAZDA3 and a first year of CX-9 sales that exceeded even our expectations, still see us as one of the strongest car companies in the business. We're selling cars and crossover SUVs, we're making money and our outlook for the year continues strong."
Mazda Motor de Mexico (MMdM) reported sales of 1,468 units, accounting for a 74 percent increase over November 2006. On a year-to-date basis, MMdM reported 14,452 total sales, an increase of 132 percent.
Rounding out North America, Mazda Canada, Inc. (MCI) sales were down 9.9 percent with 4,715 units sold. On a year-to-date basis, MCI sales are up 7.1 percent with 81,848 units sold.
Headquartered in Irvine, Calif., Mazda North American Operations oversees the sales, marketing, parts and customer service support of Mazda vehicles in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico through nearly 900 dealers.
