OUR HERITAGE

HISTORY IN MOTION

Mazda has a challenger spirit that propels us to go forward and succeed, whatever the odds. When it was said to be impossible, we produced the first ever sports car with a rotary engine and won the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. Discover how this passion and desire continues to drive us forward in everything we do.

FROM CORK TO TORQUE

Toyo Cork Kogyo is founded on January 30, 1920 in Hiroshima, focused on manufacturing cork substitutes. As natural cork begins to flood the market, the company shifts its production to mechanics.

THE FIRST VEHICLE AND A NEW NAME

The name ‘Mazda’ first appears as ‘Mazda-Go’, a motorized three-wheel truck. The name originates from Ahura Mazda, the god of light, wisdom, intelligence and harmony. It also derives from the company founder’s name, as Matsuda is pronounced Mazda in Japanese.

REBIRTH OF

MAZDA AND

HIROSHIMA

 

Post-World War II marks a turning point for Toyo Kogyo. The surviving workshops were used as hospitals and the people of Hiroshima began rebuilding their beloved city with grit and determination.

From that point on, the company paid homage to the resilience and spirit of the people of Hiroshima. The inspiration Mazda takes from its fellow citizens leads to its own reinvention. Astonishingly, given the devastation the war brought, Mazda regroups and begins producing a prototype of a small passenger car as early as 1945.

THREE-WHEELED WONDER

Building on the success of the Mazda-Go, Mazda begins production of the iconic three-wheeled K360 truck, which goes on to sell 280,000 units until it was discontinued in 1969.

THE REVOLUTIONARY ROTARY ENGINE

Mazda acquires a license in 1961 to further develop and manufacture the ‘Wankel’ engine. As early as 1963, Mazda exhibits the world’s first rotary engine at the Tokyo Motor Show.

ACHIEVING THE IMPOSSIBLE: A MASS-PRODUCED ROTARY ENGINE

After years of persistence and a single-minded focus on reaching their goal, Mazda engineers make a breakthrough in 1967 with the iconic rotary-powered Cosmo sports car. The successful engineers become automotive legends for crossing the finish line with a splashy new vehicle that puts the automotive world on notice.

MAZDA COMES TO CANADA

For nearly five decades, Mazda has been bringing its joy of driving to Canadians. Established here in 1968, we’ve grown to have 163 independently owned, franchised dealers across the country. Mazda sales in Canada began with the iconic R100 Coupe.

HERE COME THE SEVENTIES

Mazda releases the RX-2, a stylish mid-size saloon and coupe, in 1971, with a succession of RXs following its debut.

THE MX-5 MIATA

MAKES A SPLASH

 

The true measure of Mazda is how it makes you feel, and more than any other car up to hat time, the Miata exemplifies Jinba Ittai – our vision of creating cars that feel like an extension of the driver.

Drivers – and automotive critics – noticed the difference. Since then it’s become the bestselling sports car of all time, with more than 1 million sold. Today the MX-5 remains a favourite among drivers for its acclaimed design and handling

WINNING LE MANS


After competing in the gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans race for year, Mazda upsets the motoring world by winning the coveted “triple crown” – the first time a rotary engine wins the classic competition. By getting the overall win in the 1991 race, Mazda also becomes the first Asian carmaker to do so. In a race that tests the limits of an engine in terms of durability and efficiency, Mazda demonstrates that its rotary technology is up to the task by defeating automotive giants who’d dominated this pinnacle of endurance racing. This was a moment that set the tone for the rest of the decade, with our now-iconic Miata sportscar bringing the joy of elite driving to the masses.

NEW CENTURY, NEW INNOVATIONS

In 2001, Mazda celebrates 70 years of carmaking and in the following decade receives multiple honours and awards – for Best SUV and Best Family Sedan among many others. In 2004, the Mazda RX-8 sports car comes with its celebrated rotary engine – the only vehicle with this feature at the time.

BLAZING A NEW

TRAIL

Our engineers never stop innovating and the dawn of a new century brings the Skyactiv family of breakthrough technologies. Skyactiv engines harness a 13:1 compression ratio (similar to that of a racing car) to deliver unparalleled fuel efficiency, power and exhaust performance.
