Mazda’s May Sales are Best in Eighteen Years
Yes, we’re in the last half of June now, but here at Wantagh Mazda, we are still excited about Mazda’s May sales results. May was Mazda’s best sales month since 1996 – that’s eighteen years! The brand sold a total of 29,731 units, which is a 22.5% over last year’s May sales. Overall this year so far, Mazda sales are up 6.4% compared to this time last year.
“Despite the economy being anyone’s guess these days, with GDP down and durable goods orders off, we see consumer confidence looking strong and shoppers turning into buyers, and the proof of this is the results we saw across the industry with May sales,” said Ron Stettner, VP of Sales for MNAO. “At Mazda, Memorial Day was huge for us, and we feared a slowdown toward the end of the month that never happened.”
Individual Mazda vehicles, specifically the Mazda6, the Mazda3, and the CX-5, posted particularly strong numbers. Plus, Mazda’s exclusive Skyactiv technology continues to lead to great sales results – 85.6% of May sales were vehicles equipped with the impressive Skyactiv technology.
