Mazda has always had a challenger spirit that defies convention and a history of taking what was considered impossible and making it possible. Building stylish, insightful and spirited vehicles that are fun to drive and targeting those individuals who love the joy of motion and enjoy their lives through driving experiences; the Mazda brand has through the ages evolved from the 3 wheeler, the rotary engine, the Lemans win, the MX-5 story and now SKYACTIV technologies.
As of the 1st October 2014 the new Mazda South Africa head office based in Midrand, comprises of an 8800sqm warehouse and 4000sqm office and training centre, complete with PC infrastructure and warehouse racking. To date, MSA employs 36 office staff and 23 warehouse staff, all committed to unrelenting business success.
The model line-up will include the following passenger and light commercial vehicles: Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda5, Mazda6, Mazda CX-5, Mazda MX-5 and Mazda BT-50 Mazda’s desire to provide driving pleasure as well as outstanding environmental and safety performance in its vehicles is reflected in the introduction of the SKYACTIV technology.
SKYACTIV is a blanket term for Mazda’s innovative new-generation technologies developed under the company’s long-term vision for sustainable Zoom-Zoom. In South Africa the Mazda3, Mazda6 and Mazda CX-5 are the first to be launched with this SKYACTIV Technology.
“Our mission is to become the brand of choice for the private buyer and the business buyer that behaves like a private buyer. Defying convention isn’t just a brand motto, it’s who we are. How apt when considering that South Africa took what was once deemed impossible and turned it into a democratic reality; we are inspired by this. Today we have a head office, a work force, dealers and a fully operational business. Now we embark on a journey to make Mazda the most loved and sold car in the country.” – David Hughes, MD Mazda South Africa.
