Hiroshima, Japan – Mazda has produced its two millionth Mazda6. The company announced that cumulative global production volume of the Mazda6, known as the Atenza in Japan, reached its milestone at the end of August 2010, eight years and six months since production of the first-generation Mazda6 commenced in February 2002 in Japan.

The achievement marks the second-fastest time, after the Mazda3, to produce two million units of one model since Mazda launched its new-generation product lineup in 2002.

The Mazda6 was fully redesigned in 2007, improving its environmental and safety performance. It is currently produced in Japan, the U.S., and at a joint production facility in China.
