5th November, 2010

Mazda Motor Corporation has been presented with a limited edition sheet of postage stamps that feature Mazda vehicles. The stamps are entitled, "History of Mazda Motor Corporation Hiroshima" and were designed and issued by the Chugoku Regional Office, Japan Post Network Co., Ltd. (Japan Post Network Chugoku Regional Office). The postage stamps are available at all post offices (excluding contract post offices) in the regions of west Japan where Mazda has production facilities: Hiroshima prefecture and Hofu city in Yamaguchi prefecture.

The limited edition stamps feature images of several Mazda cars from the company's 90-year history, ranging from the 1950 Mazda-Go three-wheeled truck to the all-new Mazda Premacy (known overseas as the Mazda 5) that went on sale in Japan this year. The stamp sheet also shows the Mazda Shinari, a new concept car that indicates the future direction of Mazda design.

Masami Uemura, managing director of the Japan Post Network Chugoku Regional Office, presented a sheet of the limited edition postage stamps together with a miniature model of the 1967 Mazda Cosmo Sport 110S the world's first mass production rotary-engined sports car to Yuji Harada, a director and senior managing executive officer at Mazda Motor Corporation.

"Mazda is grateful and proud that the Japan Post Chugoku Regional Office has decided to issue these special stamps to celebrate Mazda's history," said Yuji Harada. "The stamps are a welcome reminder of the strong support and affection that Mazda enjoys in its local communities, especially as most of the planning and design of the stamps was carried out by staff at post offices near Mazda facilities. Going forward, Mazda is determined to continue building vehicles that look inviting to drive, are fun to drive, and provide customers with pleasure. We hope to inspire more people to commemorate our great cars."
