  • Russia and Spain sets single month records

  • Projected market share records set in Greece and Italy

Leverkusen - Mazda Motor Europe recorded sales volumes of nearly 26,000 units last month and a projected market share of 1.7 percent. This result nearly equals last April's record performance and came during a period which saw the industry decline by 1.6 percent.

Thirteen individual markets equalled or exceeded their sales objectives, with four markets recording milestones for the month. Russia set an all-time record for volume in April, with sales up 196 percent over last April. Spain also recorded its best monthly result ever for volume, increasing sales by 23 percent. April market share records were set in Greece, projected to be at 2.1 percent, and in Italy, projected at 0.9 percent, which equals the April market share record set last year.


Also recording outstanding results in April were Sweden, where sales jumped by 68 percent and in Denmark, which increased sales by 65 percent compared to last April.

"Our April sales held steady in tough market conditions across Europe," said James Muir, Vice President of Sales, "allowing us to start the new fiscal year on good footing. We will definitely build on this during the coming months as we roll out the Mazda5, Mazda6 Facelift, Mazda6 MPS and the third generation of the Mazda MX-5."
