Takashi Yamanouchi wants to increase Mazda's annual U.S. sales by 43 percent – to more than 400,000 units – by 2016. The 67-year-old CEO is banking on the third-generation Mazda6 mid-sized sedan to lead the surge. A future $500 million factory in Mexico is expected to provide plenty of local product to support the goal, and Yamanouchi says to look for an “announcement that increases the capacity of that plant even further.”
