Mazda begins production of MX-5 RF for North America and Europe

On October 4, Mazda Motor Corporation commenced production of its MX-5 RF (Roadster RF) retractable hardtop model at their Ujina No. 1 Plant in Hiroshima.

The MX-5 RF is a lightweight two-seater convertible, which embodies the “Lots of fun” value that the MX-5 line has continued to preserve for the last 27 years. It also offers original fastback styling and the enjoyment of a refreshing open-air feel.

The MX-5 RF will be exported to the North American and European markets, and is scheduled for release starting in early 2017. Moreover, the Roadster RF for the Japanese market will be released within this year.
