Mazda To Electrify Entire Line-Up By 2030

Mazda will be using a “building block strategy” for its upcoming products as it looks to become a carbon neutral carmaker by 2050. A further refinement of their Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 long-term technology development plan, the Japanese carmaker has outlined its product development policies toward 2030.

Instead of dropping traditional gasoline and diesel engines, Mazda remains committed to the internal combustion engine or ICE. That said, Skyactiv Technology, first introduced in 2007, and now standard on all current Mazda vehicles, will now be known as “Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture.”

Here, they will use transverse power units in their Small Product line-up (Mazda3, CX-30, etc.) and longitudinal power units in their Large Product line-up (upcoming Mazda6, CX-5, etc.). These engines will be mated to “multiple electrification solutions” depending on customer needs, environmental regulations, and electric power generating infrastructure.

In connection with this, Mazda has confirmed that its Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture will be introduced for all global markets, including ASEAN starting in 2022. In a span of three years, they will launch five hybrid models (including those equipped with the Toyota Hybrid System), five plug-in hybrid models, and three EV models.

By 2025, Mazda will introduce its own unique EV platform dubbed “Skyactiv EV Scalable Architecture” which will underpin “various vehicle sizes and body types.” By 2030, they would have introduced “several” products using this platform.

Based on this launch plan, 100 percent of Mazdas will have some level of electrification by 2030, and 25 percent of their global sales will be fully electric.
