Hiroshima Plant in Japan

The Mazda plant in Hiroshima, known simply as Hiroshima Plant, is part of the main Mazda headquarters. As such, this plant contains the Mazda museum, which showcases historic Mazda cars alongside present and future models. Vehicles have been being built here since the 1960s.

Hōfu, Japan

If you’re interested in the city of Hōfu, check out the film “Mai Mai Miracle.” This animated movie takes place against the backdrop of the development of this city over the latter half of the 20th century, artistically illustrating its progression from a rural collection of rice paddies to an urbanized metropolis. Such a growth is likely due in large part to the presence of the Mazda manufacturing plant.

Kulim, Malaysia

In Kulim, a third-party manufacturing company called Inokum assembles the vehicles. Kulim borders the popular Malaysian vacation region of Penang.

Nanjing, China

Nanjing (sometimes called Nanking), for its part, was once the capital of China. To this day it remains a remarkable center of culture.

    Dear Sir
    After going thorough researches and asking many friends, I am glad that I bought Mazda Car (CX5),
    but unfortunately my income did not allow me to buy the best type of this model (purchasing invoice attached), However, after purchasing I felt upset due to the lack of not including the sensors in the car bumpers which have become a basic requirement in any car model these days, at the time that your agent in Saudia Hajj Hussein Ali Reda apologized for not being able to install these sensors on the car in their company work shop branch in Jeddah on my own account, while any shortage in providing services by your agent could affect Mazda’s global image because of simple services like these sensors cannot be added.
    For your info we the residents of the Middle East and especially the Gulf region, suffering of a significant temperature high-rise inside the car cabin interior during the long stay of the vehicles under the sun light, and that heat has an impact on the equipment and the instruments inside the car. Therefore, I have a suggestion that may increase customers Loyalty to Mazda in the Gulf region particularly and globally in general, and thus increase the percentage of sales, by adding a solar-powered fan that cools the interior of the car’s cabin automatically suction and intermittently whenever the temperature inside the car increases and dumping the Heat outside the vehicle through an exhaust and turns off automatically once the temperature drops down to an acceptable temperature, this fan get the needed energy for automatic operation through solar cells installed on the rear window of the car or on the upper glass of the car sun roof.
    This is my suggestion for my beloved car for a better future, and beautiful image in the Gulf region and in the world.
    Best regards
