The Mazda Motor Corporation would like to express its deepest sympathy and concern for all of those who have been suffering from the novel coronavirus outbreak and extend our condolences to the families it has impacted.
As of today, almost all Mazda dealerships worldwide, including in Europe, have resumed sales operations.
Mazda has decided to return operations to normal or to pre-pandemic levels starting from August. At the plants in Japan, Mexico and Thailand, which are producing vehicles for the European market, all adjustments implemented due to the spread of the novel coronavirus will end in July 2020. In Japan overtime hours and work on holidays will be resumed.
We will continue to monitor the coronavirus situation as well as the trends of automobile demand in each market where our vehicles are shipped.
