HIROSHIMA, JAPAN – Feb 25, 2014: Mazda Motor Corporation has announced that cumulative production of the Mazda3 reached four million units on January 22, 2014.

The Mazda3 has consistently exceeded the expectations of customers since the launch of the first-generation model, and has been acclaimed for its emotional design, responsive handling, and high fun-to-drive factor.

The model was fully redesigned for the third time in 2013, becoming the third in Mazda’s new generation of products adopting both SKYACTIV Technology and the ‘KODO—Soul of Motion’ design theme.

Sales commenced in North America in Autumn of the same year, followed by Europe, Japan, Australia and others.

A hybrid version has been added to the model line-up in Japan in order to meet customers’ diversifying needs with both outstanding environmental and safety performance and Mazda’s hallmark driving pleasure.

Moving forward, Mazda will continue to deliver the Mazda3 at a consistently high level of quality to fans all around the world who have supported the model since its inception.
