    日前,日本小型汽车制造商马自达在扩大改变制造规划之后,取得生产与销量双丰收 2016年,马自达的全球产量接近160万辆,其中仅977,400辆汽车是在日本制造的,而只有608,600辆是在海外制造的。马自达是日本算是小汽车公司,尽管比不上丰田等巨头的规模大,但是近几年来的生产与销量增长却不容小觑。 回望2011、2012年,马自达在全球的生产量只有118.5百万辆,而到了2015、2016年就增长到157.1百万辆,2016、2017年的时候就会达到160瓦纳岭。日本的产量也增长了,2011、2-12年的时候只有847,000辆,到了2015、2016年达到了989,000辆;但是在2016/2017年度的时候,产量却出现了下滑。海外的汽车产量几乎翻倍,2011/2012年的时候是338,000辆,到了2016/2017年的时候会超过620,000辆。 生产特权 在日本,马自达旗下最重要的三大车型是:CX-5跨界SUV,2016年的产量不足335,000辆 — 年涨幅为5%;Mazda3(在日本以Axela销售),产量为214,000辆 — 比前一年增长了5%;Mazda6(在日本以Atenza销售),比前一年下降10%。在海外,2016年这三大车型的产量为:Mazda3位258,000辆 — 年涨幅为4%;Mazda 2,产量近103,000辆 — 下降14%;CX5刚刚超过50,000辆 — 增幅为6%。 最近在日本国内对生产进行扩充和改变:2017年3月,马自达宣布在Hofu工厂生产CX-5跨界SUV的,之前在Ujina工厂的生产已经从2016年开始启动。随着全球需求的增长,要增加第二个生产线。新车型是在2017年2月在日本上市,第一个月就售出16,600辆,这是马自达目标的7倍。 2016年12月,马自达开始在Hofu第一工厂生产CX-3微型跨界SUV;这是制造CX-3汽车的第三个工厂;Ujina第一工厂的生产是从2014年12月开始的,而泰国的工厂是从2015年10月开始的。在Hofo工厂生产CX-3,能够缓解Ujina的生产压力,因为这个工厂还制造CX-5和CX-9汽车。尽管这些汽车的尺寸差异很大,但是马自达的生产系统灵活性很高,而且还有“捆绑产品规划”和“通用结构理念”,使得Hufo工厂增加CX-3生产开展得很顺利。这也是计划的一部分,站到马自达到2019年3月SUV生产计划的50%。 2016年11月,全新Mazda CX-5跨界SUV在Ujina第二工厂开始。2016年10月,开始生产Mazda MX-5 RF(在日本叫做Roadster RF)。MX-5拥有传统的软顶敞篷,但是这个版本却拥有可伸缩金属顶。生产已经在Ujina第一工厂开始。 Mexico plant ‘MMVO’ Vehicle Assembly (Mazda2) 扩大日本以外的生产 在日本以外的地区,去年马自达宣布将扩大泰国发动机厂的产量,计划到2018年前半年,达到100,000部。与发动机装配辆增长同步,码字哈还要增加发动机装配厂的加工产量。目前,马自达泰国工厂的生产已经从2015年10月开始,能够制造30,000部SKYACTIV 1.5升柴油机,和1.3升汽油机。这些发动机运输到马自达AutoAlliance泰国工厂,安装到Mazda 2汽车上。 扩建需要投资221亿日元(约合1.899亿美元),而且新工厂将扩大发动机产品种类,增加2.0升汽油机(属于SKYACTIV系列)。发动机还将出口到马来西亚马自达工厂(用于CX-5的生产),以及越南(用于CX-3),促进生产。 美国提供柴油机 尽管柴油机名誉受损,尤其是美国,但是在大众柴油机丑闻之后,马自达已经启动了新款CX-5柴油机跨界车;事实上,2.2升SKYACTIV发动机是马自达在美国推出的第一款柴油机。据说,这是最高效,也是最安静的发动机,这能否将马自达2017年在美国的销量推向新的高度,非常让人期待。日本的生产已经从2016年11月开始。 尽管在美国没有吹嘘什么,但是马自达采油机为了美国市场足足准备了5年的时间。早在2012年,公司就降低平均耗能。马自达想要增加清洁柴油,作为替代,因为柴油混合动力耗费太高。其他公司也都在开发产品,企图降低耗能。马自达向美国市场提供各种柴油机型号,但都被经销商和消费者拒绝,但最近公司找到了解决方法。 "最近在日本国内的扩建和生产安排变更有…在Hofu生产CX-5跨界SUV…在Hofu第一工厂生产CX-3微型紧凑跨界SUV…在Ujina第二工厂生产全新Mazda CX-5跨界SUV…在Ujina第一工厂生产Mazda MX-5 RF" 制造的柴油具有恰当的扭矩,性能和闹能数据,增加了尿基选择性催化还原处理,清除了氧化氮排放物。有趣的是,尽管柴油机在日本市场至占到8%,但是马自达柴油机在日本的销量却占到35%,用于Mazda2 (Demio), Mazda3 (Axela), Mazda6 (Atenza), CX-3和CX-5汽车上。2016年,马自达在全球的销量为160万辆,柴油机超过285,500辆,约占到18%。 马自达在日本的生产网络 ...
