Mazda Produces More Than 3 Million KODO and Skyactiv-equipped Vehicles
Mazda has reached a new global milestone announcing the production of more than 3,050,000 (three million fifty thousand) vehicles featuring Skyactiv Technology and KODO – Soul of Motion design. This milestone comes about four years since the first model, the CX-5, started in November 2011.
Aside from the CX-5, Mazda’s new-generation line-up includes the Mazda6, Mazda2, CX-3, and MX-5. These models are currently produced in Hiroshima and Hofu in Japan as well as in Russia, Vietnam and Malaysia. This crop of models will soon be joined by the CX-9.
“The entire Mazda Group is united by single-minded desire to deliver our customers driving pleasure. That's why we take on so many challenges,” said Mazda's President and CEO, Masamichi Kogai. “Those efforts have paid off, and we have been able to exceed the three million-unit mark because our new-generation models have proven so popular with customers all over the world. We are grateful to each and every customer who chose one of our cars. Moving forward, Mazda continues to work hard to brighten people's lives through car ownership and aim to become a “one-and-only” brand that builds a special emotional bond with customers.”
