Who Manufactures Mazda Engines?

Today’s Mazda engines are manufactured either at the Hiroshima Plant in Hiroshima, Japan or the Mazda Powertrain Manufacturing Plant in Chomburi, Thailand. If you’re wondering where your Mazda’s engine was born, the Hiroshima Plant is the more likely answer. Mazda Motor Corporation produces about 1 million engines each year in its Japanese plants alone. In 2018 Mazda invested about 200 million dollars to increase its Thai engine assembly plant’s annual production capacity to 100,000 units per year.

Tucked away into the Hiroshima countryside, the Miyoshi Plant produces engines and engine parts for older models like the first generations of the MX-5 Miata and the MPV minivan. Most of the production lines in the Miyoshi Plant are transferred from the Hiroshima engine plant, so that customers can enjoy their Mazda vehicle for as long as they possibly can. The plant is staffed by just a dozen workers who are highly skilled and experienced in their craft.
