Mazda Canada reported June sales of 6,564 vehicles, representing an increase of 8.9 percent versus June 2019.
Sales through the first half of 2019 are 22,581, which is a decrease of 30.6 percent compared to the same period in 2019.
Key June sales notes:
- As the economy began to reopen in June following months of shutdowns across the country, consumers released pent-up demand for new vehicles, with an overall sales increase for the first time in three months.
- CX-5 jumps out with a 13.7 percent increase year-over-year, delivering the best sales month on record.
- MX-5 makes a big comeback for the start of summer, up 111.5 percent compared to June 2019 with the best June sales month in 3 years.
- Mazda6 sales were up 2.8 percent compared to the same time last year.
Earlier this week, Mazda Motor Corporation also resumed double shift operations at both the Ujina Plants and Hofu Plant No.2.
The Hofu Plant No.1 will resume double shift operations on July 27. As consumer demand for cars has started to see a recovery in some markets, Mazda will proceed with cautious steps to meet customers’ requests while continuing to implement infection prevention measures.
