For a vehicle that can get you where you’re going quickly, efficiently, and in the utmost style and comfort, there’s no choice better than that of a new Mazda. Here at Hickory Mazda, we have a plethora of models sure to please drivers of all kinds, offering models that can please your automotive wants and needs. And now, with the automaker opening up a new production plant in Mexico, things are about to get even better.
In 2013, sales for the brand hit 104,713 units in the United States and according to a report from Automotive News, the figures could have been even higher if it weren’t for the limits on production . Demand was high but, unfortunately, vehicles just couldn’t be made in the numbers needed for all those wanting to get behind the wheel. This shouldn’t be a problem in the future now that the plant in Salamanca, Mexico is up and running!
Current estimates suggest that sales of the Mazda3 will now increase by 20 percent. Tom Carey, chairman of Mazda’s national dealer council, stated “We’re going to be in good shape because of that Mexico inventory.”1 and we certainly agree. We’re excited to see those numbers rise.
If the estimated prove to be true, the automaker’s goal of selling over 300,000 units in the states for 2014 are well within reach. With the brand’s highest sales being 375,000 units in 1994, it could even spell a new all-time high! If this can be met, the goal of 400,000 by 2016 is that much easier to achieve. We’ll be sure to keep you updated here on the blog as details come.

Traditions are important and next week folks nationwide will gather around the dinner table and break bread with their loved ones to celebrate the tradition of Thanksgiving. They’ll also take a moment to recognize what they’re thankful for, and today we at Hickory Mazda would like to share what we’re grateful for with you.
Well, we’re actually appreciative for a lot of things really, though when it concerns our choice Japanese automaker directly we’re thankful for their models that delight the driving public. Of course as a Mazda dealer serving Hickory, NC that’s perhaps an obvious sentiment, though the proof of their rampant popularity is in the pudding.
Specifically, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) is reporting that a remarkable 19,738 units were distributed to drivers across the continent last month. That number marks the Japanese automaker’s highest-selling October since 2007 and a six percent uptick year-over-year.
Moving outside of October, 2013 as a whole has been quite exciting too. Through last month, the automaker is announcing a total of 240,229 new Mazda vehicles delivered throughout North America. That’s a healthy increase of 5.3 percent when compared to the same year-to-date sales from 2012.
With a few weeks remaining in 2013, we’re looking forward to seeing the brand finish strong. To partake in the excitement, we kindly invite you to visit our showroom. At your convenience our team is happy to arrange test drives in models like the Mazda CX-5, detail vehicle specs and answer any questions that you may have.
