You can nominate your hero, from teachers to community activists, at MazdaHero.
Winners will be announced on December 2.
Japanese automaker Mazda turns 100 this year — a year that has been rough for a lot of people for a variety of reasons, especially the coronavirus pandemic.
Mazda North American Operations President Jeff Guyton said.
“This year marks Mazda’s 100th Anniversary. We had hoped this time would be filled with moments of celebration and appreciation for our fans, employees, and partners. But given the many tragic events of 2020, we decided to express, in another way, our brand’s unique heritage of trying to make things better,”
Mazda website added that :
“From teachers going the extra mile to enhance distance learning, to community activists sourcing PPE for others, there are countless examples of people across the country going above and beyond to support others without expecting anything in return. Mazda wants to honor these important acts of kindness, resilience and empathy,”
According to Mazda, each of these 50 heroes must be selfless individual, someone who has gone above and beyond for their community.
The automaker is currently taking submissions through October 25. You can nominate your hero at the automaker’s MazdaHero website. Winners will be announced on December 2.
The 100th Anniversary Special Edition is based on the 2020 Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring model. It comes in Snowflake White Pearl Mica premium exterior paint. It is paired with Red Nappa leather seats and matching red accents inspired by the original R360 Coupe.
The interior features special 100th Anniversary badges and logos throughout, giving it a look that’s destined to leave a legacy of its own.
Powering it is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine producing 181 HP and 151 lb-ft (204 Nm) of torque.
