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:

平素より、マツダにご関心をお寄せいただき、誠にありがとうございます。
現在、世界的な規模で発生している半導体供給部品の不足に加え、海外における新型コロナウイルス感染拡大により、部品入荷や物流遅延等が発生しております。
これに伴い、生産に遅れが生じており、お客様へのお届けにお時間を要しております。

マツダ車をご注文・ご検討いただいておりますお客様には、多大なるご迷惑をお掛けしますことを、心よりお詫び申し上げます。
一日も早くお客様に製品をお届けできるよう、引き続き最善を尽くしてまいりますので、何卒ご理解を賜りますようお願い申し上げます。

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.
