Mazda will focus on unique design and internal combustion enginesJanuary 4, 2019
Mazda is one of the automakers that have confirmed their commitment to internal combustion engines, despite the ongoing electrification process in the automotive industry.
The Japanese company believes that gasoline, diesel and rotary engines are still a cleaner solution from an environmental point of view, and Mazda plans to use these power plant options in the near future.
On the other hand, in design, Mazda wants to use a much more progressive approach. According to Joe Stenuit, the head of the European design department, Mazda will give each model its own personality.
According to Steniut, each car, of course, will reflect the Mazda’s philosophy, so you can expect more beautiful lines from the new Mazda3 in all larger models, but you should not look for exactly the same appearance in them.
However, apparently, company executives do not have a clear idea of more distant prospects, because Mazda is still working on a rotary sports model RX, but it is unlikely to be able to cram it into a modern environmental framework. Meanwhile, the electric sports car also will not appear in the near future.
On the other hand, in the coming years, the Japanese are planning to develop a new crossover for the US market, and to complete, together with Toyota, a new plant in Alabama (USA), the total investment in which amounted to 1.6 billion dollars.
