Mazda to sell cars in Myanmar

Yangon jamAfter Suzuki, Nissan, Toyota, Tata, Chery, Ford, General Motors and other carmakers, Japan’s Mazda Motor Corp has said it will start selling new vehicles soon in Myanmar.

As a part of a plan to sell cars in all member countries of ASEAN, Mazda plans to send a range of vehicles to Myanmar rather than only sell low-grade models, Chief Executive Masamichi Kogai told Reuters.

“The purpose is to build our brand and create Mazda fans,” he tsaid, adding that the start of sales “won’t be so distant in the future” but the number of vehicles sold there will be small.

There are around 340,000 passenger cars registered in Myanmar, government data shows, shared among a population of more than 60 million people. Most of the cars are Japanese.
