Electric cars are becoming more popular amongst automakers and Mazda plans to take it to the next level. Constantly thriving on solutions that serve for the betterment of the environment – mainly through lower emissions, the Japanese carmaker plans to make a 360-turn in their business model and make their entire range electric in the next 10 years.
As part of its Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 strategy, Mazda’s main objective is to have 95% of its vehicles to be running on a hybrid powertrain and 5% of their vehicles to operate on pure battery electric.
Mazda will debut its first series of electric vehicles in 2020 and there will be two ranges: one fully electric range and the other will pair a range extender with a battery – powered by a rotary engine.
By 2030 Mazda wants to reduce its “Wheel to Wheel” CO2 emissions by 50% in comparison with 2010 levels and 90% by the year 2050. In order to realize this vision, the Japanese automaker is doing more than investing in electric and hydrogen solutions, but is also exploring the probability and benefit of using biofuels.
