Mazda Hybrid Rotary by Next Year
At this week‘s Moscow International Motor Show, Mazda CEO Takashi Yamanouchi announced that the Japanese automaker will bring out a rotary hybrid car, likely by next year. The Mazda6 sedan was being unveiled at the Moscow show amid speculation that its design will be reworked for the proposed range-extended rotary. Under Yamanouchi’s leadership, Mazda has invested heavily in rotary engine research. Now it appears that his company will become one more of many major automakers who will be selling hybrid models by 2015 or sooner. During his Moscow comments, the CEO pointed out that when the rotary hybrid comes to market, it will be as a lease, initially available only in Japan.
