Mazda MX-5 RF Enters Production
Mazda Motor Corporation started production of the Mazda MX-5 RF retractable hardtop (known as Roadster RF in Japan) yesterday at Ujina Plant No.1 near its global headquarters in Hiroshima. Production began with models bound for North American and European markets where sales launches begin from early 2017. In Japan, the MX-5 RF will go on sale later this year.
Truly a member of the MX-5 family, the MX-5 RF fully embodies the core value of “Lots of Fun” that has defined the MX-5 throughout its 27-year history.
This new two-seater lightweight sports car features a unique fastback design and offers an exhilarating open-air feel.
Production of the MX-5 reached 1 million units on April 22 this year.
The model is highly acclaimed, boasting over 280 automotive awards from around the world. The fourth-generation MX-5 was named World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year in 2016.
