Mazda is translated from “Matsuda”
The history of Mazda cars is a long one. It dates back to 1920, when it began as the Toyo Cork Kogyo, Co., which changed its name to Toyo Kogyo in 1927.
Originally, it was a company that produced metal tools; in the early 1930s it changed from producing tools to autos, when it produced its first auto in 1931, the Mazda-Go.
The name Mazda is thought to have been derived from its founder, Jujiro Matsuda, whose name has been connected to religious sources, by some accounts. Mr. Matsuda was a zealous advocate of Zoroastrianism, the name Mazda was connected to the the language Ahura Mazda, which was an Avestan language named in honor of a deity revered by the ancient Iranian prophet Zoroaster, who was viewed as a source of wisdom, intelligence and harmony.
In Anglicized terms, it has been said that the Japanese name Matsuda is translated Mazda, which name is commonly known today, as the above producer of automobiles. The Mazda Company produced weapons of wars for the Japanese during the Second World War, but in later decades it would primarily become legendary for the cars it would produce.
In 1960, the first legendary car of note they produced was The Mazda R-60, followed by The Mazda Carol two years later.
Mazda became legendary for its unique motor, The Wankel Rotary Engine, which distinguished itself from other auto companies. It would not be until 1970, though, that Mazda began to enter into the American Market and into America’s psyche, under the guise of ” Mazda North American Operations”. It seemed that Mazda was primarily at this point a company that became well-known for its unique Wankel Rotary Engine, but in the 1970s, their auto production began to explode as they formed a partnership with the Ford Company, in which their cars began to take off.
They began to produce legendary autos as the Ford Probe, Explorer and The Navajo. They particularly became popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, Ford Mazdas have virtually dominated America’s highways and garages. It became the car that defined the 1980s and 1990s.
