The Mazda CX-50 and CX-5 will soon offer hybridity

The adoption of electrification at Mazda is slower than elsewhere, which is somewhat the norm with smaller manufacturers. However, the Hiroshima firm is preparing to offer us a few more solutions in this area, with the hybridization of two popular models within the brand, the CX-50 and CX-5 SUVs.

The latter will join the new CX-90 which is offered in a plug-in hybrid configuration, as well as the CX-70 which will soon arrive on the market and which benefits from the same mechanics as the CX-90.

The information regarding the addition of a hybrid solution with the two compact SUVs emerged from the first quarter financial results released by the company. We learn that Mazda plans to introduce a CX-50 hybrid during the second half of this year. The technology used will be that developed by Toyota. You should know that Mazda launched a CX-50 hybrid on the Chinese market earlier this year.

The Car and Driver site, which reported the news, mentions that more information will be revealed in June regarding this model.

Mazda’s financial report also mentions a new generation for the CX-5. The company would this time develop its own hybrid powertrain to offer it with the next generation.

When the CX-50 was launched, many believed in the end of the CX-5, as we saw the company eliminate the CX-3 and CX-9 after the arrival of the CX-30 and CX-90. However, since the CX-5 is still selling very well, it would continue its path parallel to that of the CX-50, which plays the small adventurer card.

Finally, Mazda would also like to introduce a new electric model in 2027, again if we rely on the information contained in the financial report.

We will monitor this matter closely. There is no doubt that Mazda’s lineup needs new blood to allow the manufacturer to remain competitive in the market.
