Who Owns Mazda Motor Corporation?

Japanese industrialist and businessman Jujiro Matsuda founded Mazda in 1920 in Hiroshima, Japan. You may be surprised to find out that Mazda was known originally for their 3-wheeled carts! Mazda brought out its first passenger vehicle in 1940 and built its lineup in response to market demand for affordable cars, with more compact designs for cars, trucks, and three-wheeled vehicles. These new models spurred the creation of the legendary Mazda rotary engine in the early 1960s.
