Mazda’s Representative Director, President and CEO, Masamichi Kogai said:

“At Mazda we put everything into developing our SKYACTIV vehicles, and it is because these models have struck a chord with a wide range of customers all over the world that we have reached the one million-unit landmark. On behalf of Mazda, let me express my gratitude to each and every person who bought one of our cars. With our undying challenging spirit and a great deal of hard work, Mazda will continue to make even more appealing cars that will enrich the lives of their owners, and help us build a strong and lasting bond with our customers.”

Mazda is currently building SKYACTIV models in Mexico, Japan, and China, shipping them to over 100 countries and regions worldwide.
