While many brands are completely saying goodbye to the combustion world, Mazda goes its own way and, in addition to electrical drives, also relies on hybrids, petrol engines and diesel. In addition, the Japanese want to climb into the premium league-with models like the CX-60.
Instead of indulging in individual models or when driving a monotechnology, Mazda wants to grow up and unlock with its new models for the premium league. Even if hardly brands like Audi, BMW or Mercedes appear tangible when the first jump, it looks different with Alfa Romeo, Volvo or Cadillac. This is supposed to make a new platform that the technology -loving Japanese have developed with a lot of dedication and inventory in recent years.
Mazda relies on a new rear wheel drive platform
Unlike many of the competitors from the volume segment, this is a platform for larger vehicles with rear -wheel drive and corresponding all -wheel drive. The platform does not rely on electric drives, but combustion engine with four and especially six cylinders, which can be hybridized on request.

The first model on the new platform with rear wheel / all-wheel drive and longitudinal engines will be the Mazda CX-60, which will later follow the seven-seater CX-80. In the USA and some other non-European markets, the Japanese are introducing the new Mazda CX-70 and Mazda CX-90 models based on the same platform, which are slightly larger and wider than the European variants. While the Mazda CX-60 has two rows of seats with five seats from mid-2022, the larger Mazda CX-80 offers up to seven rows of seats from 2023 from 2023. The two SUVs are the first vehicles with the new plug-in hybrid drive as a row four-cylinder, which is supported by an electric motor.

In addition to this drive, the newly developed in -line six -cylinder also find their way into the new models – as a petrol engine and diesel. Something surprising: In addition to the plug-in hybrid drive, there will be a turbo-loaded version of the new inline six-cylinder petrol engine in addition to the plug-in hybrid drive. In Europe there is the order: Four-cylinder phev, six-cylinder diesel and only then a six-cylinder petrol engineer – again without charging. Instead, there is a SPCCI drive for the current models that combines the advantages of petrol engines and diesel in a engine.

Electric car with its own electricity generator
In addition, Mazda offered a new variant of the Mazda MX-30 in Europe and the USA in the first half of 2022 in Europe and the USA. The electrical crossover is then also available in a variant with a circular piston engine, which drives a generator for on -board power generation. The new plug-in hybrid drive, which always drives the bikes electrically, enables purely electrical driving on shorter routes and the covering of longer distances with the circular piston engine. It was not until 2025 that Mazda released a number of new electric vehicles to customers all over the world. By 2030, there should only be fully electric vehicles and hybrid versions in the European model program.
