The Japanese automaker’s Chief Executive, spoke about Mazda’s future at the Los Angeles Auto Show, saying: “For the Japanese market, we have produced an electric vehicle.

Mazda History of Innovation

Mazda 2 history of innovations

Mazda’s RX-Vision concept was recently unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show – the new concept stole the show in Tokyo and is one of the most anticipated and talked about reveals. Mazda CEO, Masamichi Kogai, was commented on the release, saying: “The only engine we can think of in that car is a rotary engine.” The RX-Vision’s low slung design implies that the other engine configuration would work. Mazda has been committed to success in innovation since before 1931 – with a 3-wheeled truck known as the Mazda-go DA. In the 1960s Mazda had to consolidate automotive manufacturing – the industry’s thinking was that rather than being a full-line company, each manufacturer would focus on a different vehicle segment rather than being a full-line company. Mazda saw this as an opportunity to differentiate itself from the other Japanese automakers, and focus only on developing and enhancing the rotary engine technology. A few years later, Mazda introduced the first twin-rotary engine in the 1967 Cosmo Sport.

Mazda’s Latest Lightweight Design Concept

Mazda 2 lightweight and 2 new concepts

Mazda recently unveiled two design concepts at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week that truly demonstrate the automaker’s two vastly different takes on lightweight, open-air performance. The two models truly represent the automakers pure, lightweight sports car philosophy and it’s easy to see why the Mazda MX-5 Miata has remained one of the most popular vehicles in the world since its original introduction in 1989. The two concepts are known as the Spyder and the Speedster – although they are both built to be the same vehicle, cosmetically they differ tremendously. Ken Saward, Design Manager, Mazda North American Operations, said: “Both MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster are uncompromising designs that highlight the core strengths of MX-5. The all-new 2016 MX-5 served as a blank canvas for our design team to create some truly one-of-a-kind cars, yet our SEMA concepts remain true to more than 25 years of MX-5 heritage.”
