Mazda-10-Million-US-Sales-Main-ArtMazda just marked an important milestone, announcing that is has sold its 10 millionth vehicle in the United States since operations started in 1970.

The ribbon-breaking car in question was a 2013 Mazda3, which was sold by Continental Mazda of Naperville, Illinois. To help celebrate the occasion the lucky buyer’s car was actually replaced with an all-new 2014 model. The ’13 version she was going to purchase will become a permanent part of the Mazda heritage collection.

There are many highlights on the road to 10 million. Mazda is perhaps most famous for its innovative rotary engines, hallmark powerplants that made car like the RX-7 legendary.

The MX-5 Miata was also a smash success. Introduced in 1989 it went on to become the best-selling two-seat roadster in the world. To date dealers have delivered more than 900,000 of them.

Of course it’s not always about maximum performance, finesse is also important. The company’s modern Skyactiv technology is cutting consumption without sacrificing driving enjoyment. This unique approach to vehicle optimization will help the company sell its next 10 million cars in the years ahead.
