What country are Mazda cars made in? Mazda models are from many different places, however the main manufacturing plant is based in Fuchu, Aki District, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. This company has produced Mazda models since its founding in 1920.

As a start, this company made three-wheeled motorcycles they called “Autorickshaws.” From there, motorized carts became popular and Mazda moved forward with industry-changing technologies. Learn more about Mazda’s history, where Mazda models are made, and more with Town North Mazda today!

Who Owns Mazda?

The Mazda Motor Corporation owns Mazda. They were founded in Hiroshima, Japan in 1920. The first passenger vehicle was created in 1940, but Mazda was known solely for their three-wheeled carts. As the world demanded more affordable cars, Mazda compiled designs for more compact cars, trucks, and three-wheeled vehicles that brought about the creation of the legendary Mazda rotary engine.

Where Are Mazda Models Made?

Mazda models are built in a variety of locations both in Japan and America. Currently, there are three manufacturing facilities in Japan. Two are located in Hiroshima, Japan and the other is in Hofu, Japan. In addition to these Japan manufacturing facilities, there are several in North America. These models are produced by the Auto Alliance International facility in Flat Rock, Michigan, and the Kansas City assembly plant in Claycomo, Missouri. Check out our guide in order to find where specific Mazda models are manufactured.
