Mazda to strengthen Thai model range by 2020
Mazda plans to considerably strengthen the range of its products in Thailand by 2020.
Focus on a new seven-seat minivan to ride the wave of the success of this segment in Southeast Asian markets, but focus also on hybrid vehicles developed jointly with the Toyota partner.
The Japanese carmaker is also active in Thailand thanks to the AutoAlliance joint venture with Ford above all for the pick-up assembly, the most popular category in the country (by the end of the decade Mazda will be the only to manage the activities).
The capacity of the Rayong factory is around 275,000 units per year, and at the plant are also produced the Mazda2, 3 and CX-3.
