Mazda3, 6 send corporate sales soaring
Mazda’s corporate sales rose significantly in the first half of 2010 thanks to strong sales of the Mazda3 and 6.
Mazda boasted net fleet sales of 2,977 from January to June, an increase of over 18 per cent compared to the same period in 2009.
Peter Allibon, Mazda fleet and remarketing director, said: “We have experienced significant growth in our net fleet channels."
“We are undertaking fleet business as a demand, we have not pushed vehicles out to mass volume and high cost fleet channels."
In June alone, Mazda shifted 4,031 units, a sharp increase of 41 per cent on June 2009. Fleet registrations accounted for 929 vehicles – 598 of which were categorised as net fleet.
The Mazda3 is available from £14,230, with the larger Mazda6 retailing from £16,995.
