Mazda to Increase Production of the CX-5

Earlier this year Mazda took the automotive world by the reigns and unleashed the 2013 Mazda CX-5

"I am grateful for the high praise the CX-5 has been receiving from customers all over the world,"1 says Mazda Representative Director and Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, Takashi Yamanouchi. But what is the reasoning behind all the acclaim?

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 is the first from the manufacturer to be released with SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, which allows the vehicle to obtain a laudable 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway. Given the current state of gas prices, with no REAL relief in sight, that means big demand from consumers.

In fact, the demand is so great the automaker is having a hard time keeping up. What does this mean? Time to step up productions of the CX-5, as well as the SKYACTIVE engines.

Currently, the Mazda CX-5 is produced at a rate of 200,000 units per year. The company plans on adding an additional 40,000 units more per year. Meanwhile, production of SKYACTIV engines will double, from 400,000 annually to 800,000.

This likely means an addition of more fuel efficient new Mazda models available to consumers. If you have any questions about the new Mazda model line up, the Mazda CX-5, or SKYACTIV technology, contact us today! We're here to answer any questions that you may have.
