Mazda has already announced that it will boost production of the CX-5 capacity from 160,000 units to 200,000 units in August 2012. Now though, they have boosted this even further 240,000 crossovers per month.
This will be done by shifting production from Ujina Plant No.2 to also include Ujina Plant No.1. This move comes in response to increasing demand for the crossover from markets across the world. Since the company begun taking order in February, Mazda has received so many orders that they’ve changed their sales target from 160,000 to 190,000 units for the 2012 fiscal year.

“I am grateful for the high praise the CX-5 has been receiving from customers all over the world. This production capacity increase for the CX-5 demonstrates that we are working hard to deliver the vehicle to waiting customers as early as we possibly can. It will also help establish a flexible production system that enables us to produce new-generation SKYACTIV products at Ujina Plant No.1. I believe that it shows Mazda is making steady progress in optimizing its automobile manufacturing processes,” said Mazda’s representative director and chairman of the board, president and CEO, Takashi Yamanouchi.
