Mazda recently celebrated the sale of its 10 millionth vehicle in the United States is began operations here in 1970. The 2 millionth vehicle was a 2013 Mazda3 purchased by a woman from Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Mazda gave the woman a free 2014 Mazda3 allowing the automaker to keep the 10 millionth car for its personal collection.
"The first 10 million vehicles sold in the U.S. were reached through taking the road less traveled," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. "The next 10 million will be accomplished by defying convention, continuing to push the limits of engineering and infusing every vehicle Mazda builds with the soul of a sports car."
Mazda says that the 2 millionth car will become part of its permanent Mazda heritage collection. The woman who bought the 2 millionth vehicle purchased it as her first new car.
