Mazda reported that it has received a close to 8,000 orders for its new CX-5 crossover in Japan since February 16. They were either very conservative in projection of the figures or was just playing safe because the original monthly estimate was 1,000. That's eight times more!
"Mazda is extremely grateful for the approval from many customers for the all-new CX-5”, said the company’s President and CEO Takashi Yamanouchi.
“I am convinced that we will surpass our global sales target of 160,000 units per year and that the CX-5 will become one of our core models alongside the Axela (known overseas as the Mazda3), Atenza (Mazda6) and Demio (Mazda2)," he added.
