Mazda is increasing Mexican production to 230,000 in 2016

Mazda is not going to push out cars until March 2014 as it is to finish new factory in Salamanca, Mexico, informing that they plan to increase production capacity from 140,000 units to 230,000 units by March 2016. A Toyota-badged car, which is thought to be a subcompact based on the next Mazda 2, will represent 50,000 of those extra vehicles. The new generations of the "2" and "3" will enhance the other two cars that Mazda will build in Mexico. According to Mazda president Takashi Yamanouchi, the production capacity increase is an important part of Mazda's way to strengthen its overseas production base as it was laid out in their medium to long-term business planning. He also added that it was important to note that the capacity increase in Mexico would allow the company to meet their production agreement with Toyota together with the growing demand for their SKYACTIV products around the world, would be essential to production in Japan.
