More than 2,000 fans attended the official launch on September 18, according to Thee Permpongpanth, vice president of Mazda Sales.
“We staged a sneak preview in August and received a lot of interest, so we created an online system to communicate with customers and get them registering for the launch,” he said.
He said the 1,100+ orders received in just four days broke the record of 1,000 units set in 2006. Seventy per cent of the orders were for the top-priced 2.0 SP model.
