Mazda6 production to end in Michigan, heads back to Japan
Thursday, June 9th, 2011
Mazda produces the North American-spec Mazda6 model at the AutoAlliance International plant in Michigan, a joint-venture production facility shared with Ford. Assembly of the Mazda6 will continue at the Flat Rock, Michigan plant until the middle of next year when a new generation of the model commences production in Japan.
The joint-venture plant’s future is now uncertain as there will no longer be a Mazda vehicle in production there. Ford uses the plant to build the Mustang.
