About Mazda

Mazda Motor Corporation is a Japanese automotive manufacturer is based in Hiroshima, Japan. As of last year, 2006, the company has projected 1.25 million vehicles per year with sales equally distributed among its different markets namely Japan, Europe, North America and Latin America.

The name of the company is claimed to be derived from Ahura Mazda, the transcendental God of Zoroastrianism. It is also claimed that Mazda coincides with the anglicized pronunciation of the founder's name Jujiro Matsuda who was interested in spirituality and chose to name his company Mazda to honor both his family and Zoroastrianism. Mazda means wisdom in the Avestan language. But in Japanese the company has always been pronounced and spelled as "Matsuda" which makes many to believe that Mazda is just a poorly anglicized version of the founder's name.
