Mazda MX-30 electric

Post by coulomb » Thu, 24 Oct 2019, 20:29

I thought the day would never come when Mazda announces an electric vehicle. But that day has come. So I've created this Mazda production EV forum.

There will also be a rotary engine powered hybrid:

They're saying that the MX-30 is expected to go on sale in Australia in 2021.

[ Edit: added "electric" to the title, since it seems all Mazdas will come in hybrid, PHEV hybrid, and electric in future. ]

Yes, that's good news. It has been three years since Mazda's Dinosaur Declaration.

The Mazda RX sports line with an electric turbo and hybrid drive to give it that outstanding launch off the mark the Tesla has, but not the weight, regenerative braking and long range per fuel and battery refill, could be the ultimate Bathurst 12 hr and 24 hr race machine.
The electric turbo doesn't require under sizing for a quick spin up, so it doesn't need work as hard so the early turbo failures that plagued racing rotaries in the past will no longer be an issue. The rotary is only fuel inefficient at part load, that can be eliminated by using it as a generator power plant as well as providing propulsion when needed via a similar planetary drive as the Prius uses now.
Maybe even a heavy vehicle hybrid powerplant, multiple quad rotor engines driving 200kW generators, only fired up as required. Far lighter than the monster cast iron diesel engines used now and could be distributed along the truck/trailer combination as required .... could be a whole different ball game in the near future, they will run on many different fuels as well ....
