Mazda has decided to produce the new crossover SUV “Mazda CX -5” currently being produced at the headquarters plant in the Hofu factory (Hofu City, Yamaguchi Prefecture) from November this year. By doing so, we will strengthen our flexible and speedy response to the global demand for SUVs.
In response to the request for Mazda to achieve a global sales volume of 1.65 million units outlined in the medium-term management plan “Structural Reform Stage 2” (Fiscal Year 2017 – the fiscal year 2019) according to demand, We are working to build a system that can flexibly produce. As part of that, in December last year (2016), we began production of the compact crossover SUV “Mazda CX 3” at the Hofu factory in addition to the head office facility.
