Mazda has announced three new enginesNovember 11, 2020
The Japanese automaker has announced an all-new in-line six-cylinder engine. There are photos of the new engine that the next Mazda6 may receive, but the engine’s debut should only be expected in a few years.
The image above gives a first glimpse of Mazda’s new in-line six-cylinder engine, a new four-cylinder engine and a plug-in hybrid motor. Information about these new products appeared in the financial presentation of the automaker, access to which appeared a couple of minutes ago.
Mazda indicates that the new inline-six will be available after 2022. It will be available in petrol, diesel and as part of the Skyactiv X family. The company plans to install a longitudinal four-wheel drive engine. The presentation does not mention the use of this setup in vehicles with rear-wheel drive configuration.
The new plug-in hybrid motor will also debut after 2022.
The presentation uses a phrase that translates to “multielectric technology” for the future use of rotary motors. This will almost certainly be the same setup found in the MX30 crossover, which will use a rotary motor to increase the overall range for the electric propulsion system. This engine will appear in the first half of 2022.
Mazda first announced the inline-six in 2019. At the time, the automaker said it would appear between 2020 and 2025.
Rumors suggest the next-gen Mazda6 will be powered by this inline-six and rear-wheel drive. Although the information in the official presentation indicates that buyers will also be able to get all-wheel drive. The sedan will reportedly arrive by the end of 2022. It will mark a major change for the mid-size model that will set it apart from the competition.
