Mazda Will Reveal Its Future Electric Vehicle In Tokyo Next Month

After a year or so of speculating, the first electric Mazda vehicle will break cover at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show.

If you look back through our coverage, we’ve reported on a number of potential avenues that Mazda was exploring and we finally have some nearly official details as to what to expect. Officially, the first EV from Mazda will be introduced at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show.

Earlier this month, we reported on the Mazda e-TPV prototype which featured a combination of a 105 kW electric motor good for 195 lb.-ft. of torque, a 35.5 kWh battery with a 200 km range. For our market, Mazda feels the need, with reason we believe, to include a range-extended version that will include a rotary engine as a generator.

Mazda e-TPV: Things To Know About Mazda's First EV Prototype

The prototype was based on a Mazda CX-30 which we now know will be introduced in North America in the near future. The new EV will be an all-new vehicle with an as-of-yet unknown name. This EV will arrive on the market sometime next year as the first EV from Mazda, the first of many to come.

As we know, Mazda has joined forces with Subaru, Toyota and Suzuki in order to pool resources to develop a new electric car platform. The Mazda EV we will see next month is all Mazda.
