Would that be monthly, annually, or simply the total number they plan to sell? Do you, by any chance, have a source for this info?

Mazda expects to sell 1,000 of the diesel CX-5s in the U.S., and after those are gone, who knows? Its compression-ignition gasoline Skyactiv-X engines due to roll out soon in the 3 compact car are designed to provide Zoom Zoom performance with turbodiesel fuel efficiency. I can't guess what kind of towing capacity a CX-5 with the Skyactiv gas engine might provide, though I'm willing to bet that for most enthusiasts, it will be worth the wait.

I appreciate your response, Tin Man. At first, I thought it would be the monthly figure since they sell about 150,000 of the CX-5s annually. Selling 12,000 diesels annually would be a reasonable percentage of the total. But the article is clear that the 1,000 is the total number they plan to sell here. If that is truly what Mazda plans to do, then their executives must be smoking some first-class stuff. How can they possibly turn profit on such small volume? It seems that Mazda really expects this whole diesel idea to fizzle out in a few months, never to be heard from again.

Current issue of Car & Driver has as short review of the diesel. What you'd expect, except in their FE loop it got 34 MPG, over the EPA highway estimate. Actually that's not too bad as C&D is notorious for flogging their cars.

34 mpg sounds very excellent for such a vehicle. My 535d averages 36 mpg on the computer which I found to be pessimistic when calculating it myself.

From a FE point of view, for an SUV/CUV w/ automatic transmission, the now defunct GM Equinox diesel was a winner averaging almost 37 MPG (according to Fuelly for the 2018 model).
