Mazda

Mazda Motor Corporation, or simply Mazda, is a Japanese carmaker headquartered in Fuchü, Hiroshima, Japan. The name Mazda was associated with the God of Light (Ahura Mazda) but it's also a derivative from the name of the company's founder, Jujiro Matsuda. However, the name Mazda was formally adopted in 1984, as the company began its activity as Toyo Cork Kogyo in January 1920. A paramount milestone for Mazda was the development of the Wankel rotary engine which the company saw as a means of differentiating itself from what the other Japanese carmakers were doing at the time. We are in the sixties, and Mazda is gearing up to launch the limited-edition Cosmo Sport (1967). From here on, Mazda's piston-powered and rotary-powered cars started to reach other parts of the world as well - the RX-2, RX-3, and RX-4 were a lighter alternative to the V-6 or V-8-powered competitors and spearheaded that expansion. In 1970, Mazda officially set foot on US soil, then from 1974 until 2015 it entered a partnership with Ford, which had a 33.4 percent ownership in Mazda. That affair ended in 2015, when Mazda entered a long-term collaboration with Toyota.
