Mazda Motor Corporation has announced production of the Mazda MX-5 Miata (Mazda Roadster in Japan) reached one million units on April 22, 2016.

The milestone figure was achieved over 27 years, with mass-production of the MX-5 starting at Ujina Plant No. 1 in Hiroshima in April 1989.

As a way of expressing thanks to MX-5 fans and owners, the One-Millionth MX-5 will be displayed at fan events in Japan and around the world.

The tour began May 3 at the Hiroshima Flower Festival where the car will participate in the Flower Parade.

Since its debut in 1989, the model has consistently offered driving fun that can only be experienced in a lightweight sports car and won the admiration of people from various countries, cultures and age groups.
