Mazda Teases New Electric Vehicle Interior

A new teaser video reveals part of the new Mazda electric vehicle’s interior.

Mazda will unveil a new electric vehicle next week at the Tokyo Motor Show. A teaser video showing little bits of the interior was released today.

The video is only 15 seconds long, but does reveal a futuristic shift lever along with two rotary dials that ressemble current Mazda infotainment system and volume dials.

This will technically be Mazda’s first mass production electric vehicle, but not its first EV. The Mazda Demio (Mazda2) was offered with an electric motor in 2012 in Japan, but only 100 vehicles were produced.

The new Mazda EV will be unveiled on October 23. Along with a glimpse of the interior console, the teaser video also highlighted the use of sustainable materials inside.

Details about the upcoming electric vehicle have been trickling in steadily. We know it will have a unique exterior design and be a stand-alone model in the Mazda lineup as opposed to an electrified version of an existing model.

It will likely use a version of the Mazda e-TPV concept’s powertrain previewed last month. That single electric motor developed 141 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, and was powered by a 35.5-kWh lithium battery pack. No details concerning range were released.

Mazda did say that artificial sound coming through the speakers will simulate a four-cylinder engine’s sound. Not sure how that will go over with the EV crowd, but we will have to wait and see.
