Autozam

In the madness of the Japanese bubble economy in the late 1980s, Mazda wanted, seemingly, to take on Nissan and Toyota’s large lineup of models. To that end, it created new marques for each of its domestic sales channels.

Autozam was given task of selling primarily small and kei-class vehicles, although the brand did have its own variant of the GE 626/Chronos called the Clef.
