Mazda CX 5 Production at Mazda Boosts CX 5 Production

The Mazda CX-5 crossover proved so popular the Japanese car maker had to increase production capacity from 200,000 to 240,000 units per year to keep up with the global demand. So far only Ujina Plant No.2 was  responsible for making the crossover, but now Mazda decided to also include Ujina Plant No.1 as well. This means the No.1 plant will get SKYACTIV enabled sooner than expected.

That means we get more SKYACTIV models i the future. And that’s great news, because this technology is one of the few ones with real effect on fuel economy without ruining the driving experience. It still drives like a Mazda, charming and wonderful.

The demand for the CX-5 is surging. For example, in Russia, Mazda’s biggest market in Europe, orders for the model already exceed 10,000 units, drawing close to the annual sales target of 12,000 units for that market.

Mazda’s representative director and chairman of the board, president and CEO, Takashi Yamanouchi said, “I am grateful for the high praise the CX-5 has been receiving from customers all over the world. This production capacity increase for the CX-5 demonstrates that we are working hard to deliver the vehicle to waiting customers as early as we possibly can. It will also help establish a flexible production system that enables us to produce new-generation SKYACTIV products at Ujina Plant No.1. I believe that it shows Mazda is making steady progress in optimizing its automobile manufacturing processes.”
