Who Owns MAZDA?

First things first, who owns Mazda? Mazda is owned by the Mazda Motor Corporation and the corporation was founded in Hiroshima, Japan in 1920. The corporation made three-wheeled motorcycles called “Autorickshaws” then. It wasn’t until after the popularity of motorized carts rose in the 1930s that Mazda created their first passenger vehicle in 1940. Despite their first passenger vehicle, they were still mainly known for their three-wheeled carts. Due to the rise of demand for more affordable cars, the corporation began designing compact cars, trucks, and three-wheeled vehicles that ended up leading to the creation of the famous Mazda rotary engine.

Where is MAZDA Made?

Now that you know who owns and makes Mazda, you might be wondering “Where is Mazda made?” The Mazda Motor Corporation is based in Fuchu, Aki District, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.

What Makes MAZDA Special?

While Mazda’s fame was thanks to the rotary engine initially, nowadays it is thanks to the SKYACTIV® technology that is in newer Mazda models. Many Hurst drivers opt for Mazda because of the reliable performance and efficiency.

MAZDA Technology
