Comprehensive Vehicle Proving Grounds

Plant name Location Start of operations Land area Activities
Miyoshi Proving  Ground Hiroshima, Japan June 1965 1,702,000 m2 Mazda's main proving ground: used to develop basic vehicle functionality for driving, cornering, and stopping. Also, contributes to comfortable and safe vehicle engineering by providing test areas for stability tests, crash tests, and durability tests.
Mine Proving Ground Yamaguchi, Japan May 2006 753,000 m2

Ongoing development of test course facilities that are unavailable at the Miyoshi Proving Ground for further product improvements.

Hokkaido Kenbuchi Proving Ground Hokkaido, Japan January 1990 4,700,000 m2 Technology development and functional tests on frozen roads of systems such as 4WD, ABS, TCS*1, and DSC*2 that ensure safe driving under hazardous frozen/snow conditions.
Hokkaido Nakasatsunai Proving Ground Hokkaido, Japan January 2002 260,000 m2 Mazda's second proving ground in Hokkaido is for developing vehicle functions for differing conditions in various climates. Mainly performs development tests for safe-driving systems such as ABS, TCS, and DSC under frozen conditions.

*1 Traction Control System (TCS): Mechanism to optimize a vehicle's traction according to the driving conditions
*2 Dynamic Stability Control (DSC): DSC integrates the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control System (TCS) to optimally control the engine output and 4-wheel individual brake force to prevent side skids. In addition, the system maintains stable driving conditions while cornering on slippery roads or during evasive steering to avoid hazards.
