Mazda Reaches Its 50 Millionth Vehicle Made In Japan

According to the Mazda Motor Corporation, Mazda produced its 50 millionth unit on May 15th. This is a huge accomplishment and was met after 86 years and seven months of production. Masamichi Kogai, the Representative Director, President, and CEO of Mazda Motor Corporation, spoke at the commemorative ceremony they had at the Hofu Plant in Yamaguchi and said, "Mazda began making cars 86 years ago, and now we've reached 50 million units of production in Japan. Even making 1 million cars a year, it would take 50 years to reach its milestone, showing just how long Mazda's history is."

Kogai was referring to Mazda's long journey, which began in 1931 with a three-wheeled truck and a dream. In 1960 they then moved to the R360 Coupe micro-mini and expanded into two plants instead of one. They have since grown extremely popular, especially with their SUVs and crossovers, and are now considered a global company. This fiscal year alone, in fact, the Mazda Motor Corporation plans on selling 1,660,000 cars and hitting the two million mark by March 2024.

Of course, we, here at Mazda of Jackson, couldn't be more thrilled about the growth and expansion of the Mazda market. We love our Mazda vehicles. From the stunning, powerful, and versatile Mazda3 sedan or hatchback and the roomy and capable Mazda CX-5 SUV to the gorgeous and exhilarating Mazda MX-5 Miata convertible and adrenaline-inducing Mazda MX-5 Miata RF coupe, we can see the craftmanship and the love that is put into creating each of these vehicles.
