Mazda Plans To Release 13 Electric Vehicles By 2025
The Japanese automaker is going all in on EVs, sooner than some of their competitors.
- The plan is to release five hybrids, five plug-in hybrids, and three all-electric vehicles between 2022 and 2025.
- Mazda want its lineup to be 95% electric by 2030.
- The first EV from Mazda will be the subcompact MX-30.
Unlucky for some, but not for Mazda. The popular Japanese automaker plans to release more than a dozen EVs by 2025 as part of a large-scale strategy.
Around 13 new EVs will join Mazda’s lineup — five hybrids, five plug-in hybrids, and three all-electric vehicles.
While we have no specifics just yet, the fact that the automaker is announcing multiple vehicles at the same time can only mean good things for the electric market.
The first all-electric vehicle from Mazda is the subcompact MX-30, due to release within the next year. Some details, including range, are scarce at the moment. However, we do know it comes with a 35.5kWh battery pack and a 144 horsepower electric motor.
Moreover, the MX-30 will also be available in a plug-in hybrid version, complete with a rotary range extender.
Mazda is said to be working on a new EV platform called the ‘Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture.’
The platform is said to be universal, fit for all types of EVs, from plug-in hybrids to all-electric vehicles.
Buyers will soon have so many options to pick and choose from, with governments worldwide announcing plans to go green — which includes the transport sector, one of the leading contributors to carbon emissions in some countries.
Heading in an electric direction only strengthens the potential of brands overseas.
