MAZDA5 Sales up 29 Percent, MAZDA3 Reports Best June Ever

IRVINE, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda North American Operations
(MNAO) today reported June 2008 sales of 23,771 vehicles, a 7.7 percent
decrease over last year, but an increase of 3.7 percent on a Daily Selling
Rate (DSR) basis. There were 24 selling days in June 2008, 27 in June 2007.
Despite a tough economic state in the automotive industry, Mazda's
year-to-date sales are up 0.3 percent with 153,141 vehicles sold (up 0.9
percent on a DSR basis).

"Small, stylish, fuel-efficient -- those are the buzz words of the car
business these days," said Jim O'Sullivan, President and CEO, MNAO. "As
always, customers want the right vehicle at the right price, and never has
this been so true as today, as MAZDA5 and MAZDA3 sales are proving."

Leading the way yet again, the MAZDA5 multi-activity vehicle posted a
29.2 percent increase versus last June, with 1,416 units sold. Redesigned
for 2008, the MAZDA5 is a spirited vehicle that targets a very specific
driver, with three rows, room for six passengers and up to 28 mpg
(highway). Year-to-date, MAZDA5 sales are up 44.1 percent.

MAZDA3 also had a great month, recording its best June sales ever, up
8.9 percent with sales of 12,346.

Additionally, Mazda Motor de Mexico (MMdM) celebrated its best-ever
June with sales of 1,586 vehicles, up 30 percent versus last year. MAZDA3
5-door and MAZDA6 both had their best sales month ever. On a year-to-date

increase.

Wow, the CX-7 tanked. It's too big, heavy, and thirsty next to cute-utes like the RAV4 and CR-V, yet it's too cramped and sporty against midsizers like the Edge and Murano.
