HUNTSVILLE — Mazda has begun exporting its CX-50 Crossover to Mexico. The company’s newest vehicle is assembled at the Mazda Toyota Manufacturing plant in Huntsville.
Mazda and Toyota invested $2.3 billion in the joint venture plant in Huntsville, which will have the capacity to assemble up to 300,000 vehicles a year and employ up to 4,000 team members. An additional 2,000 Team One members will be employed by MTM supplier partners.
MTM started production of the CX-50 in January.
“We are eager for the arrival of Mazda CX-50 to Mexico,” said Miguel Barbeyto, president of Mazda de Mexico. “Customers had asked for it so, as always, we listened and integrated this exciting new product that gives a new face to Mazda, now much more robust but maintaining the sophistication of this seventh generation.”
This year, Mazda celebrates 18 years of operation in Mexico, which has become an important market for Mazda Corporation as well as Mazda North America.
The CX-50, designed for city on off-road driving, is also exported to Canada and Colombia.
