Mazda Gives Consumers the Best Fuel Efficiency Cars in the Industry

In the recently released United States Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy report for cars and light trucks, Mazda was recognized for having a fleet of the most fuel efficient vehicles on the market.

Best Fuel Efficiency

Creating the Best Fuel Efficiency vehciles, Mazda’s adjusted fleet-wide numbers ranked highest in mpg performance and lowest in CO2 emissions.

The company boasts 27.1 mpg in its 2012 model year vehicles, an increase of 2.1 miles per gallon over the 2011 models. According to the report, it is the second largest increase in the industry.

CO2 emissions were reported at 328, the lowest in the industry.

Mazda reached these record numbers through its award-winning SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, which provides an affordable alternative for those shopping for a new car.

“While other manufacturers have turned their attention to hybrids and electric cars, we chose to focus on perfecting the base technology used in more than 90 percent of the cars and SUVs sold today: the internal combustion engine. Through analyzing and refining this technology, as well as every other component in a modern automobile, Mazda has been able to achieve class-leading fuel economy in nearly every segment it competes in, and bring that technology – at an affordable price – to every customer,” said Jim O’Sullivan, Mazda North American Operations president and CEO.

1991 Mazda 626 Gets a Makeover Fit for an NFL Player

Football_field_02While Alfred Morris was busy on the field working as a starting running back for the Washington Redskins, DC-area Mazda engineers were spending 275-man-hours remodeling his car.

So what car does the NFL player drive that would take 275 hours to restore? A 1991 Mazda 626 named Bentley, which he bought during college from his pastor for $2.

Morris was loaned a 2014 Mazda6 in exchange for his 1991 Mazda 626 with his Florida Atlantic University parking decal (which expired last year) still in the rear window. Sounds like a pretty smart trade on Morris’s part, but what was Mazda thinking?

No, there isn’t something in the water over there on the east coast. The exchange was an inventive public relations move as the restoration process, dubbed the Alfred Morris project, was recorded.

By the time Morris was given back the keys to his car, Bentley had undergone a heavy duty makeover inside. Fitting in light of its name, the car received leather seats with quilted, cross-stitching. A new audio system complete with a touchscreen was another of several updates the car received.

You could say this is one purchase that paid for itself.

We don’t have any tricked out 1991 Mazda 626s left in our inventory here at Bakersfield Mazda. We do, however, have other models that share some of the same great features we think you’ll enjoy, including the 2014 Mazda6.

Mazda3 Breaks Mazda Records

Since the 1970’s, Mazda has been selling lots of cars in North America. Just recently, on Tuesday, October 22, 2013, Mazda reached a great milestone of selling their 10 millionth vehicle in the United States.

Mazda3

Mazda was nothing but ecstatic and had to have the 10 millionth Mazda car sold added to their Mazda heritage collection. The 10th million vehicle sold was a 2013 Mazda3. The customer who purchased the small car was then upgraded to a 2014 Mazda3 for free, so that the 2013 Mazda could be added to the collection.

In 2004 the first ever Mazda3 was launched and has been a success ever since. As a whole Mazda Motor Corp. has set aspiring goals for the small and safe vehicle which were just released. This year, Mazda plans to sell 500,000 Mazda3 vehicles alone. Mazda is confident their sales goals are attainable seeing that the Mazda3 contributed to 30% of sold Mazda vehicles last year.

The newly designed 2014 Mazda3 has become a top segment leader. With greater fuel economy, innovative technology, top safety features, comfort and style, there is not much to complain about the all new Mazda3.
