This is part of Mazda’s “Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030” plan.
Mazda intends to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
Japanese automaker Mazda is trailing somewhat behind its competitors when it comes to electrification. Even so, they are committed to producing vehicles that will be sustainable as they thrive to become carbon-neutral in the future. A large portion of the plan involves electrifying their products.
Mazda’s next step will involve what they call the “SKYACTIV Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture.” It will include transverse power units in our Small Products and longitudinal power units in our Large Products. This structure will enable Mazda to deliver market- and customer-oriented vehicles with various electrification solutions. For example, a range-extended EV that will call upon the rotary engine as a generator.
As well, Mazda will introduce their unique “SKYACTIV EV Scalable Architecture” EV platform in 2025. This one architecture will work for various vehicle sizes and body types. Somewhere between 2025 and 2030, Mazda expects that 100% of all their new vehicles will be electrified and that by 2030, one in four new models will be all-electric.
Mazda will also launch a number of new technologies including a human-centric autonomous driving system or “Mazda Co-pilot Concept.” This system will, among other functions, monitor the driver’s condition and take over if deemed necessary. The first generation of this technology will be introduced as early as next year.
