The all-new Mazda MPV is a car that fully embodies strong points of Mini -vans, namely space utility, distinctive design and Zoom-Zoom - the core essence of Mazda’s brand personality. Also, enhanced quality and excitement substantially differentiate the all-new MPV from conventional Mini-vans. I’m very pleased that Mazda is launching another “Zoom-Zoom” product onto the market.

Mazda Motor Corporation to Restart Production at Ujina No.1 Plant in April
Submitted by Berny on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 22:31Mazda General

HIROSHIMA, Japan--Mazda Motor Corporation announced today that the paint shop at the Ujina No.1 Plant (U1) that was damaged during a fire in December 2004 is to be completely restored, resuming full production with integrated painting and vehicle assembly in April 2005. Initial estimates of a 70,000 unit production loss have also been revised, with strong recovery efforts Mazda has undertaken to produce an estimated additional 40,000 units, resulting in a loss of an estimated 30,000 units due to the fire's interruption

Mazda is on track to make a rapid recovery from the fire in approximately four month--faster than the more-than six-month restoration period that was initially forecast--due to a module-based construction system that has reduced both construction time on the affected area of the building and the interval required for the installation of new production equipment. The eco-friendly Three Layer Wet Paint System will also be introduced to the newly refurbished U1 line and is one of the reasons Mazda will be able to complete the restoration project so quickly.
