New Mazda models seem to be popular among Henderson and Las Vegas drivers. But many want to know what’s the origin of Mazda? What country is Mazda made in? Mazda models are made all over the world, however, they started in Japan. Learn more about the origin of Mazda models and more with our team at Findlay Mazda today!

How Did Mazda Begin?

Mazda currently has its headquarters in Fuchu, Aki District, Hiroshima Prefecture. Not only is this where they are currently stationed, but this brand has been located here since its founding in 1920! Back then, however, Mazda was known for manufacturing 3-wheel motorcycles known as autorickshaws. As the brand, and its technology, progressed, and demand for motorized carts became high, Mazda tried its hand in automobiles. This paved the way for the new Mazda inventory that we enjoy today!

Who Created Mazda?

Mazda was created by Japanese industrialist and businessman, Jujiro Matsuda. He created the first Mazda passenger vehicle in 1940 as demand grew for affordable vehicles with a compact design. This led to the creation of the famed Mazda rotary engine in the early 1960s, which led to countless innovations decades later.
