"MAZDA CELEBRATES 10 MILLION VEHICLES SOLD IN U.S
Forty-Three Years of Fun-to-Drive Cars Has Brought Mazda to its Greatest Accomplishment


IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2013 - Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced that it recently sold its 10-millionth vehicle in the United States, since starting U.S. sales operations in 1970. The 10-millionth vehicle, a 2013 Mazda3, was sold from Continental Mazda of Naperville, Ill., to Lauren Carter of Glen Ellyn, Ill. To celebrate this significant milestone, Mazda has replaced Carter's recently purchased 2013 Mazda3 with an all-new 2014 Mazda3, and the 10-millionth vehicle will become a permanent part of the Mazda heritage 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."

"We are honored to work with Lauren and are glad she is part of this occasion. We couldn't be any happier that she chose Mazda as her first new car," added O'Sullivan.

Carter, a 26-year old accounts receivable specialist and guitar teacher, was in the market for a sporty, fun-to-drive car that has plenty of storage and still achieves high MPG numbers. After conducting her research, Carter bought her first new car, a 2013 Mazda3. Unbeknownst to her, it would be the 10-millionth Mazda ever sold.

"I chose a Mazda because I did the research and learned that Mazda has some of the most reliable, feature-packed cars on the market," said Lauren Carter, Mazda's 10-millionth customer. "Mazda's cars are designed for people who are looking to get more out of their vehicle. I compared Mazda with other brands and models before purchasing and those other cars didn't compare. The Mazda3 is fun to drive and I can fit my guitar and amplifier in the trunk. For me, there's nothing better!".."

wondering how they determine she's the exact 10 millionth? was it the 10 millionth vehicle produced for the states?
Her PURCHASE was the 10 millionth. Not a production number, but a sales figure.

yeah but i'm sure on a given day there are more than several sales of mazdas across the united states, how could one accurately determine at the moment that it was actually her? it's not like all the dealers are in instant communication with each other. i wouldn't be surprised if they chose her based on some basis of presentability.

It doesn't sound like they instantly gave her the '14. The dealerships probably have to report which cars they sold and when, and it was likely determined from that after the fact.
