The second-generation of Mazda3 models produced since 2009, and the third should appear at the end of this year. “This increase in production capacity is an important part of the company’s efforts to strengthen its overseas production base – said Yamanuti – as set out in our medium and long term goals. It is important to note that this increase in power in Mexico, which will allow us to implement the agreement with Toyota and meet the growing demand for our products around the world, will complement the development of production in Japan. ”
