MAZDA REPORTS BEST APRIL SALES SINCE 2008 - Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 all provide strong gains in the month of April -

IRVINE, Calif., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today reported April U.S. sales of 22,434 vehicles, representing an increase of 12.8 percent versus last year. Year-to-date sales through April are up 2.4 percent versus last year, with 100,492 vehicles sold.

"April saw customers emerging from their long winter hibernation, and traffic and sales were where we expected to see them earlier in the year," said Ron Stettner, VP, Sales for MNAO. "Along with the improved weather, positive financial news as companies report earnings, a recovering housing market and the Dow in positive territory, have all conspired to give shoppers the confidence to return to the market. We're seeing it in retail traffic, and we're seeing it in sales results."
