Mazda is one of those brands that has resisted electric and electrified cars for the longest time. It is true that we have been able to see some electric prototypes over the last period, but it was quickly clear that it was only studies that would not yet see roads in the near future. Instead, in their desire for greater efficiency, they embarked on the improvement and development of petrol engines, and the result of this is, after all, the Skyactiv-X.

After long-term speculation, the Japanese brand today has also officially confirmed that it will reveal its first electric car at the upcomming car show in Tokyo. What type of car would that be Mazda has not yet revealed – more information is likely to have to be held until press conference 23. in October, when the opening for press will take place.
Although there is no official information on this, as has been said, it is quite possible that the Mazda will, at the same time as the introduction of the new one, bring back the old technology. For some time now, there have been rumours– which Mazda does not deny – that in electric cars the legendary rotary engine is to be returned to use. This will, of course, not be intended to provide performance to the car, but should, due to the compact dimensions, be the best option for a range extentioner
