... Its $629 in Japan and you missed the fire sale earlier this year when they blew them out at $249. Thats why they rocketed from #3 to #1 in mirrorless sales in Japan within two months. Price went back up last month I think. Mission accomplished.

That might help to explain EOS-M unit sales jumping to a 30% share of the Japanese MILC sales for the half year January-June 2018, but it does not explain Canon roughly matching Sony at about 18% share each for all of 2017 (behind Olympus at about 27%): https://photorumors.com/2017/11/15/the-2017-bcn-camera-rankings-are-out/

(I do not understand EOS-M's sales success in Japan either, but those are the facts.)
