Mazda Reports November Sales Increase

Mazda’ November Western European sales reports show an increase of 21 percent in the Big-5 (U.K., Spain, Germany, France and Italy), compared to same month of 2008.

Overall, 8 markets reported Mazda sales increases, with three of them achieving historical volume records. Totaling 1400 units, Mazda’s domestic sales in Austria reached their highest volume ever, rising 63 percent in comparison to November 2008. Successful financial results have also been recorded in the UK, where Mazda recorded its highest November volume ever, reaching 3800 units, an increase of 46 percent versus November 2008. The third sales record was set in Turkey, where Mazda gained its highest market share ever, about 0.9 percent for the month.

The list of markets in which Mazda has defied the financial crisis included Germany, where the Federal Motor Transport Authority (Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt, or KBA if you like) registrations for the Mazda brand continued their rising trend. In November Mazda sold 3,505 vehicles (an increase of 19.1 percent versus November 2008) in Europe’s largest market. Other positive reports come from Italy, with 1,400 units sold (+ 10 percent vs November 2008), and France, where almost 1,000 units were retailed (+13 percent). In decreasing order, we have Switzerland, where a volume of nearly 700 units (+24 percent) was achieved, Sweden, with 300 units sold in November (an impressive +51 percent) and Malta, where 20 vehicles were sold last month (highest volume ever for this market).

Fortunately, Mazda is not the only automaker reporting sales increases for November. In fact, the list includes Audi, BMW, Kia, Mercedes, Wolkswagen and others. The scrappage schemes have had a major contribution to this, but we hope the trend will go on and we will all be one step closer to the recession's end.
