By The Numbers

The MAZDASPEED MX-5 Miatas (all 6573 derivatives) were produced in Mazda Ujina No. 1 Plant in Hiroshima, Japan. (Click here for Production pics).


They are rare cars in North America with a total production of just 5,781 over two model years for the entire continent. A partial reason these figures are so low is due to a fire in the production facility in late 2004 resulting in aborting the planned production. (Click here to see more)

As mentioned elsewhere I have approached Mazda Canada to obtain a list of VINs of only Canadian MSMs comparable to friends’ lists south of the border (see Links section). However, Mazda Canada cannot provide this VIN list as it is against the more stringent Canadian Privacy Laws which consider a VIN to be part of customer's personal information. Therefore we have built and confirmed our list over time and hope to acquire information on all 353 Canadian vehicles.

Here is a snapshot of currently known MSMs in Canada. This figure includes what I like to call the CanAm cars, which are cars initially sold in the USA but currently reside in Canada. This chart will be periodically updated as new information is received.

As you can see we still have a way to go, so if you spot an MSM out there get the info and forward to us or have the owner contact us directly.

A just a little more info about numbers OUTSIDE North America. All Right-Hand drive cars (all branded MSMs were exclusively Left-Hand drive cars) were produced for sale either in Japan or Australia, here are their production numbers.
