MAZDA ANNOUNCES RECORD CAR SALES FOR SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR

 IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda Motor of America (MMA) today announced it has achieved a sixth consecutive passenger car sales record in 1993, driven by strong sales of the 626 mid-size sedan, the MX-6 sports coupe and the Protege compact sedan.
 The 1993 record passenger car sales totaled 290,474 units, an increase of 3.5 percent over 1992 sales of 280,745. Mazda's total vehicle sales also increased in 1993, reaching 344,609 units, a 1.7 percent increase over 1992 total sales of 338,683.
 "We're extremely proud of setting our sixth consecutive passenger car sales record," said Kazuo "Sonny" Sonoguchi, president of MMA. "A large measure of this sales success can be attributed to the 626 sedan and MX-6 sports coupe built in Flat Rock, Mich."
 The Protege compact sedan, 626 mid-size sedan and MX-6 sports coupe each registered increased sales over last year. The Protege finished 1993 with sales of 81,642 units, up 10.4 percent over 1992 sales of 73,938. Sales of the 626 reached 71,377 in 1993, up 34.5 percent from 53,065 in 1992. The MX-6 sold 29,068 units in 1993, up 8.5 percent from the 1992 sales of 26,785.
 Two of Mazda's passenger car lines, the 626 and MX-6, are produced in the United States at AutoAlliance International, equally owned by Mazda and Ford Motor Co. These two lines accounted for 100,441 sales in 1993, which represents 34.6 percent of Mazda's total passenger car sales in the United States.
