Mazda is a small independent manufacturer that sells a fraction of the cars made by the world’s largest automakers. And being a small automaker in 2021 isn’t easy.
However, according to industry experts, the company has made a name for itself for building cars that are fun and value for money.
The MX-5 Miata Roadster has achieved something of a cult status and is one of the best-selling two-seater roadsters of all time.
Mazda has also made other cars that are loved by enthusiasts, such as the RX-7.
Mazda was also an innovator in engines. For 50 years, the company stored its vehicles with rotary engines – a highly unusual engine design. In recent years, the company has made advances in improving the efficiency of gasoline engines with its Skyactiv technology.
But electric vehicles are gaining market share, and Mazda doesn’t have the deep pockets that automakers like Volkswagen, Toyota, and General Motors have.
Of course, Toyota has a 5% stake in Mazda, and the two of them work together to build vehicles and EV technology. These types of partnerships are becoming increasingly important as investors, governments, and customers expect all automakers. You can also give a small manufacturer like Mazda a chance of survival.
