Mazda have announced a return to full production at their Japanese plants within the next month.

Day and night shift operations will resume before the end of July as Mazda looks to rebound from the coronavirus shutdown.  The manufacturer hopes to recover up to 80% of its production volume compared to July last year as it works to return to normality.

With consumer demand for cars showing signs of recovery, Mazda is having to plan ahead to ensure retailers are fully stocked, and planned production volumes in July will jump 150% compared to this month.

Plants in Thailand and Mexico will continue to operate on reduced working days until the coronavirus situation in those countries eases.
