Mazda closed 2010 as the second fastest-growing automotive brand in the Philippines on the back of the popularity of the Mazda 2, 3 and CX-7.
Mazda Philippines said it sold a total of 3,148 units in 2010, 54 percent higher than the number of vehicles the brand sold in 2009.
"Mazda attributes its robust performance in 2010 to the successful launch of the Mazda 2 sub-compact, continued strength of the Mazda 3 and the strong demand for the Mazda CX-7 crossover SUV," the company said in a statement.
A total of 911 Mazda 2 subcompact cars were sold since it was officially launched in March until December 2010. The Mazda 3, on the other hand, continues to be the brand's best-selling model with sales reaching 1,230 units. Mazda sold 732 CX-7 units.
"We are absolutely delighted to have ended the year on such a high note, which helped deliver record full-year sales for the Mazda brand in 2010," said Randy Krieger, president of Ford Group Philippines. "Not only are we the second-fastest growing automotive brand in the country, we are also a leader in sales satisfaction."
Mazda topped the recent J.D. Power Asia Pacific Study on customer sales satisfaction with a score of 832 points--the highest among local car companies--for excelling in four of seven factors: delivery process, salesperson, delivery timing and dealer facility.
"We look forward to carrying this momentum in to a strong 2011," Krieger said as more programs and promos await Mazda clients this year.
Mazda has seven authorized dealerships in the Philippines: Mazda Alabang, Mazda Greenhills, Mazda Makati, Mazda Quezon Avenue (Metro Manila), Mazda Batangas, Mazda Pampanga and Mazda Cebu.
