The current trend toward hybrid vehicles is what Mazda too is looking seriously at. In fact, the introduction of its Skyactiv technologies has placed the company on to a higher pedestal of late. The car maker is now lining up a couple of new models, and from what we get to know, the US will soon see its Mazda6 Skyactiv-D diesel on sale.
That apart, Mazda will roll out its new Skyactiv-Hybrid and Skyactiv-CNG versions of the Mazda3 at the Tokyo Motor Show which will get under way in November.
Most probably a Japan only release, the Mazda3 Skyactiv-Hybrid has not yet revealed anything regarding fuel economy, electric components and other specifications.
Meanwhile, the Mazda3 Skyactiv-CNG Concept, a bi-fuel version of the same car, will be seen incorporated with gasoline and compressed natural gas as fuel.
Mazda is lining up this car as a concept vehicle for the moment. So we are just waiting to know if the model will make it to the US when it is actually made.
We will have to wait with our eyes wide open to see what plans the company has with respect to these new planned models. Stay with us.
