The first half of 2005 marks the first time Mazda has exceeded 70,000 unit sales in China, the fastest growing automotive market on earth. The exact number of units sold is 70,357, which is an astounding 53.6% increase over the same period last year. The Japanese automaker's goal is to sell 100,000 units by the end of this year, which seems easily attainable, and to increase its rate to 300,000 units annually by 2010. The Mazda6 sedan saw the biggest jump in sales posting an 85.5% increase over last year. Mazda plans to begin soon selling the Mazda6 sport wagon and five-door hatch there, as well.
