Its world premiere will take place in January 2023.
The PHEV tech will join the boosted inline-6-cylinder engine.
Mazda is banking heavily on SUVs. With only the compact Mazda3 left as a conventional car in the lineup, Mazda has effectively switched over to SUVs and they have grand plans for the popular vehicle type. The next new one on the way will be the large-midsize CX-90 which will be a PHEV.
Mazda is adamant about the fact that despite this being the Japanese automaker’s first-ever plug-in hybrid vehicle on the continent, it “will maintain the responsiveness, performance, and driving dynamics that define Mazda vehicles.” Mazda vehicles are widely recognized for their associated driving dynamics and although the CX-90 will be large, it should still please driving enthusiasts who have a family in tow.
As well, it seems clear that the CX-90 will also carry on Mazda’s now equally well-established premium-ized approach to its products. As the new CX-90 will instantly become the brand’s flagship vehicle, we can easily assume that it will be available with an array of luxury features including Nappa leather and much more.
About the PHEV powertrain, it is understood that it will revolve around the 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an added battery pack and an electric motor. It will be joined by the anticipated turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine.
The 2024 Mazda CX-90’s world premiere happens in January 2023.
