Whether Vancouver are wondering about who owns Mazda or where Mazda is made, Freeway Mazda has you covered.

Who Owns MAZDA? The MAZDA Motor Corporation

Founded in Hiroshima, Japan in 1920, Mazda was originally envisioned as a manufacturer of three-wheeled motorcycles called “Autorickshaws.” The brand came into prominence throughout the 30s, sponsoring events across the world to promote these “three-wheeled cars.” The Mazda Motor Corporation didn’t create their first passenger vehicle until 1940. As demand for affordable vehicles increased in the 40s, Mazda attempted to create a niche in the automotive market for 3-wheel trucks and compact cars—this led to the development of what Burnaby drivers know to be the famous Mazda rotary engine.

Where is MAZDA Made?

Most Mazda factories are located in Japan, but the brand has factories in Mexico and North America as well. Who makes Mazda vehicles? While it was owned by Ford for decades, in 2015, it once again became its own entity.

What Sets Mazda Apart From Other Brands?
