Mazda Issues Apology For Delayed Vehicles

If you have been anxiously waiting for your brand-new Mazda, it looks like you’ll have to show a bit of patience. The Hiroshima-based carmaker has finally posted a notice on its official website apologizing to its customers regarding the delay in production and delivery of vehicles.

The official notice reads as follows:



Translated, it reads:
Thank you for your continued interest in Mazda.
Currently, in addition to the shortage of semiconductor supply parts that is occurring on a global scale, the spread of the new coronavirus infection overseas has caused parts arrivals and distribution delays.
As a result, production has been delayed and it takes time to deliver to our customers.
Unlike Toyota, Mazda doesn’t offer regular updates on its production plans and stoppages. However, with their manufacturing footprint limited to just two plants—the Ujina and Hofu plants, it’s likely that most, if not all of its models made in Japan are currently affected.

To recall, the Ujina Plants produce the MX-5, CX-3, CX-30, and CX-9, while the Hofu Plants produce the Mazda3 and Mazda6 for the Philippine markets. The CX-5 and CX-8 are both produced in Malaysia at Inokom, while the Mazda2 and BT-50 are assembled at Auto Alliance Thailand.
