Mazda Motor Corporation today hosted the world premiere of the all-new Mazda BT-50 bakkie. Fully redesigned for the first time in nine years, the all-new Mazda BT-50 is supplied by Isuzu Motor Limited on an OEM basis. The vehicle will go on sale in the latter half of 2020.
Since its debut in 2006, the Mazda BT-50 has been sold mainly in regions including Central, South America, the Middle East and Africa. The second fully-redesigned model aims to bring customers pleasure and enjoyment. Based on Isuzu’s D-MAX bakkie, special care went into the vehicle’s design, ease of use and into creating peace of mind for the occupants.
The all-new Mazda BT-50 fuses Mazda’s Kodo—Soul of Motion design language and premium interiors with power, toughness and utilitarian functionality suited to a bakkie. Mazda’s Kodo – Soul of motion design language is immediately visible in the front grille, which makes it an undeniable part of the Mazda family. The design of the headlights is distinct and sharp, taking in cues from Mazda’s SUV range.
The all-new Mazda BT-50 interior cabin space has been carefully crafted to express Mazda’s commitment to human centric design. Everything from dashboard, steering wheel, seats and center console has been redesigned to ensure that drivers feel connected to their vehicle and as comfortable as they can be. There is a sense of power and Mazda premium inside the cabin and the seats wrap around the body especially when driving off-road (if ever).
Mazda developed the Mazda BT-50 with the intention of making travel and the time spent inside the vehicle exceptionally pleasant. The vehicle’s driving performance, functionality and safety meet the active needs of the wide range of situations in which customers may use bakkies.
