Who Owns MAZDA and Where is MAZDA Made?

The Mazda Motor Corporation first got its start in 1920 selling three-wheeled motorcycles called “Autorickshaws” in Hiroshima, Japan. The popularity of these vehicles and the Mazda name increased significantly after Mazda began sponsoring events in the 1930s.

1940 brought the invention of the first passenger vehicle, and the demand for more affordable cars increased as a result. This prompted Mazda to begin developing designs for compact cars, trucks, and three-wheeled vehicles, which eventually led to the development of the iconic Mazda rotary engine.

When Did Ford Buy MAZDA?

When did Ford buy Mazda? Ford Motor Company bought stakes in the Mazda Motor Corporation in 1979. By 1995, Ford owned over 33% of the company, but ended up selling all of its Mazda shares in 2015.

Why Buy a MAZDA?

Why buy a Mazda rather than a Honda or Toyota? This one’s easy: newer Mazda vehicles are equipped with SKYACTIV technology. So, what does this mean, exactly? From the body construction to the engine, every component of a Mazda is designed to maximize performance and efficiency.

What’s more? Mazda vehicles offer all the latest and greatest technology features to keep you safe and connected on Scranton and Lehighton roads, including Apple Carplay® and Android Auto™ connectivity, Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE®, a 360-degree monitor, and much more.
