It’s amazing news that Mazda finally will begin electrification and hopefully plug-in hybrids will become a decent part of sales. The goal for 2050 is to lower the corporate average “well-to-wheel” carbon dioxide emissions by 90% (compared to 2010).
The two first electric cars are to be a BEV and an electric car with a newly developed range extender. It’s expected that the current plan is to launch first electric model in 2020.
