50m Maz­das made

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK - ❚ tinyurl.com/y98h3c4u

Mazda re­cently signed off on its 50 mil­lionth ve­hi­cle, and held a com­mem­o­ra­tive cer­e­mony at its Hofu plant, watched by rep­re­sen­ta­tive Di­rec­tor, Pres­i­dent and CEO, Masamichi Ko­gai. The mile­stone was achieved 86 years and seven months af­ter Mazda pro­duced its first three-wheeled pickup truck, the Mazda-go, in Oc­to­ber 1931. ‘Even mak­ing one mil­lion cars a year, it would take 50 years to reach this mile­stone, show­ing just how long Mazda’s his­tory is,’ Ko­gai said.
