Mazda Picks up Speed on the Electric Vehicles

One of the latecomers to the automotive industry is planning to catch up in the Segmemt e-cars, as Mazda is presenting plans to revise its product line. All vehicles should be equipped by 2030 with drives by electrical energy.

Five percent of Mazdam models will be completely battery-powered this year. Although Mazda is moving toward electrification, the automaker will continue to perfect the combustion engine, which is a key component of hybrid vehicles, said Chief Executive Officer Akira Marumoto at a Tokyo press conference.
