The Mazda brand is on the rise, and the CX-5 and Mazda6 both enjoyed record months in September. Thanks to the success of these two models, Mazda sales in North America climbed 6.7% over sales from September 2013; year-to-date sales are up 9.3% with 240,953 models sold through September.
“The past two years have seen a September sales month without the Labor Day holiday, which can present a challenge for our dealers, yet we still reported a year-over-year increase,” said Ron Stettner, vice president of sales, MNAO. “Sales growth continues to be the product of strong dealer support and SKYACTIV Technology, specifically the quality, fuel efficiency, technology and value found in Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5.”
When we say the “Mazda6 Has Best September in 9 Years” we mean it, and sales of the CX-5 were the best that they have ever been in September. The Mazda6 delivered 4,263 vehicles for a 34.6% year-over-year increase, and the CX-5 moved 8,097 vehicles for a 28.9% year-over-year increase.
As has been the trend, a huge percentage of Mazda’s overall sales belonged to vehicles powered by SKYACTIV® Technology. September was no different, with more than 84% of all Mazdas sold using the brand’s efficient technology.
Additionally, Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles were up 17% with 3,513 vehicles moved in the month of September.
