Mazda to launch three new EVs by 2025


All three EVs will be built on Mazda’s existing technology before the new Skyactiv Scalable Architecture debuts in 2025

Mazda is set to launch three new EVs by 2025 in order to play catch up with the likes of Volkswagen, Hyundai, BMW and Kia which have already released several EV models and have more on the way. 

This will all happen before Mazda switches to its upcoming Skyactiv EV Scalable Architecture which can accommodate anything from small cars to large SUVs thanks to a bolt-in panel which can stretch the chassis to suit the size of the vehicle. 

According to reports from AutoExpress, Mazda has hinted that its small product group will likely be the first area to get the new platform, so we could see a fully-electric Mazda 3 small car or CX-30 small SUV in just a few years’ time.

But internal combustion engines won’t be simply killed off in the next couple of years. Mazda has announced it will launch five new hybrid cars and five plug-in hybrid cars by 2025 – all of which will deliver lower C02 emissions, better fuel economy and more power. 

Owners will be able to choose from 24-volt or 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrains, with new straight-six petrol and diesel variants to join larger cars in the Mazda fleet, such as the CX-60 and CX-70 SUVs.

What EVs are currently offered by Mazda?

The only fully electric vehicle currently offered by Mazda is the MX-30 small SUV which produces 107kW of power and 271Nm of torque

Mazda’s first ever EV has a range of 265km, according to the conservative WLTP standard, and draws power from a 30kWh usable lithium-ion battery pack.

The Mazda MX-30 competes with cars such as the Hyundai Kona electric, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Tesla Model 3

Mazda is staying very quiet about what sort of electric cars will be coming next, though the Mazda 3 will likely be one of the first to get full electric power, along with an SUV of some nature.
