Visiting the Salut Bonjour program, the chronicler of car driver Antoine Joubert gives insight into future Mazda technologies.
After a three-day stay in Germany, Antoine was able to test a new product for Europe, the Mazda CX-60.
“It’s a vehicle that we won’t have at home, but one that uses technology that we’ll find in vehicles offered at home for the next few years,” he explains.
The SUV features chargeable hybrid technology for the first time. “That’s interesting because we’re combining the four-cylinder engine we’re familiar with here – the 2.5 liter – with a 100 kW electric motor. With it you can get between 50 and 60 kilometers of autonomy in 100% electric mode, ”says the journalist.
Unfortunately, the utility will not see North American soil.
A new range
On the other hand, this hybrid technology will be found on board a number of future Mazda products, starting with the CX-90, which will replace the CX-9. It will also feature new chassis and an eight-speed gearbox.
In addition to the CX-30 and CX-50, another vehicle will join the Mazda catalogue: the CX-70, a mid-size, two-row SUV.
