Mazda MX-30: The extended range rotary engine is very close


The history of Mazda and the Wankel engine go back a long way.. So much so that in 1964 the Japanese house brought its first model powered by this engine to the Tokyo Motor Show: the Cosmo. From then on it was a point of support and reference for models to come later: RX-3 or RX-7. However, the cost of oil or fuel was a burden that not even the RX-8 could shake off. In fact, after him he died and so to this day...

But Mazda has never "gone out of its mind" to bring the rotary engine back to life. The problem is that she hadn't come up with the ideal formula and after thinking about it carefully, it seems that she's ready to “get back on track”. Do you remember or do you know the Mazda MX-30 with a rotary engine? Well, you should since we've ever talked about him. And now the rumors have been left behind the Hiroshima house has confirmed that it will arrive in 2023. Take note…

In theory, the Mazda MX-30 R-EV will debut at the next Brussels Motor Show in 2023…

A couple of days ago Mazda announced the update of its future roadmap. At this event they showed the world their plans and a special model: the Vision Study Concept. In fact, it has been the revulsion that we needed and that the MX-5 fandom wanted to dream of the new generation. However, it was not the only surprise that was in his rundown. They also gave some clues development status of the upcoming Mazda MX-30 R-EV.

Well, everything indicates that They plan to launch it on the market soon.. In fact, there are already those who have dared to indicate the exact date and place where such an event will take place. Apparently, its canvas will fall on the 13th of January 2023 at the Brussels Motor Show. For now, there are several sources that point in this direction and not in another direction, but it seems strange to us. Above all because the Brussels Hall is smaller and more reduced.

Be that as it may, whether the date is true or not, the important thing is that the date itself Mazda has already confirmed the project. And not only that, he also named it Well, until now we did not know what it would be called MX-30 R-EV. The rest of the secrets are unknown, but not what the mission of the Wankel rotary engine will be. It will be responsible for powering the lithium ion battery that powers the electric powertrain. Thus, its 35,5 kWh battery will be more capable.

The possibility that its engineers can increase its power is also in the air. The reason to think so is that it is still necessary go from 107 kW to compensate for the loss of benefits due to weight gain. In any case, now that everything indicates that there is an official date for his debut, we will be more attentive than ever...
