Perhaps your Hamden commute gives you time to think and to ponder over the important questions in life, like, where is Mazda from? What country is Mazda made in? Where are Mazda vehicles produced in those countries? Is Mazda made in the USA? Those are good questions, and we fortunately have the answers. To start off with, Mazda originated in Hiroshima, Japan. Read below to learn more.

Where is Mazda From, Exactly?

So, where is Mazda from, exactly? As we stated, Mazda Motor Corporation was founded in Hiroshima, Japan. The company got its start in 1920 manufacturing three-wheeled motorcycles called “autorickshaws”. It moved on to passenger vehicles in 1940. Mazda eventually progressed to building compact cars, three-wheeled trucks, all the way to the impressive sports cars and the SUVs you see rolling through New Haven today.

What Country is Mazda Made In?

Most auto manufacturers have factories in multiple countries, and Mazda is no exception. What country is Mazda made in? The company produces most of its vehicles in Japan, but about a third of Mazda vehicles are manufactured around the globe. Here’s a list of its locations in Japan:

  • Mazda3 Models – This Mazda3 is mostly produced in Hofu, Yamaguchi, Japan. However, the engines and transmissions production are manufactured at the Hiroshima plants.
  • Mazda5 Minivan, Mazda CX-5,MX-5 Roadster, RX-8 – These models are made in the Fuchu, Aki District, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan facility in the Miyoshi ward. This is Mazda’s main manufacturing facility.
  • Mazda SUVs and Sedans – The manufacturing of most Mazda SUVs and sedans, except for the Mazda6, is spread out throughout Mazda’s Japanese plants.

Are Mazda Cars Made in America, as Well?

Buying products that are made in America is important to a lot of North Haven drivers. They’ll be glad to know that the Mazda6 is produced right here in the USA. The Mazda6 is produced in two plants co-owned by Ford: one in Flat Rock, Michigan, and another in Claycomo, Missouri.
