Mazda brings the latest rotary engine to the MX-30 crossover

Mazda has not abandoned the Wankel engine.

The company will unveil a new one as a range extender later this week in the small MX-30 crossover.

This will be the first gyroscope since the RX-8 sports coupe in the early 2000s.

​Mazda says the latest has been “reborn for the electric age”.

I think they may have gotten a little carried away when they said the powertrain will “stay true to its multi-solution approach to the global challenge of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”

But no other automaker has a hybrid part powered by a rotary gasoline engine.

The company has confirmed that the model will go on sale this spring.

The MX-30 needs a longer range, which will take it to a potential 400 km.

The current MX-30 is a nice little city crossover with a 35.5kWh battery, but its range is severely limited (at around 210km).

Competitors are the Peugeot e-2008, the Hyundai Kona Electric and the Volkswagen ID 3.
