Mazda has officially begun the production of the all-new MX-5 roadster, with the first units to be sold in its home market of Japan before the car is progressively rolled out to the global market.

Production of the MX-5 is being done at Mazda's Ujina plant in Hiroshima, with local sales starting in June. Interested buyers can already place their orders through Mazda dealers by tomorrow.

The all-new MX-5 incorporates the Japanese carmaker's full suite of Skyactiv technologies and its Kodo 'Soul of Motion' design language.
