Mazda confirms model names of expanded European SUV lineup

Mazda announced plans to expand its SUV lineup from 2022 onwards. Two new models from the company’s Large Product group, the CX-60 and CX-80, will be introduced throughout Europe during the next two years.

To meet the growing needs of the segment, Mazda will offer European customers a wider choice of SUVs combining the latest environmental performance with the driving pleasure inherent in every Mazda.

At the same time, new CX-70 and CX-90 wide-bodied models, and the CX-50 from the small platform group, will be launched in the US and some other non-European markets.

The new European models, the CX-60 and CX-80, will create positive business growth over the medium-to-long term. Making full use of the company’s Building Block development and production strategy, which incorporates SkyActiv technology, bundled planning and flexible production, Mazda will expand its SUV lineup using the latest technologies.

Featuring two-row and three-row seating respectively, the CX-60 and CX-80 will spearhead the European introduction of plug-in hybrid models with straight-four gasoline engines combined with an electric motor. The new generation straight-six SkyActiv-X petrol engine and SkyActiv-D diesel engine will also be introduced in combination with a 48V mild hybrid system, combining high output with excellent environmental performance.

In addition, during the first half of 2022, a new version of Mazda’s first mass-production EV, the MX-30, will be introduced that incorporates multiple electrification technologies using Mazda’s unique rotary engine as a generator.

From around 2025, the company will introduce a number of new products on a new EV-dedicated platform. With the introduction of these models, Mazda is on track to complete the electrification of its complete range by 2030.

Alongside these new models, the CX-5, which has been recently updated, remains one of the core models driving Mazda’s business globally. The CX-5, and other models such as the CX-30, will continue to play a key role in Mazda’s crossover SUV lineup; the evolution of design, product improvements, and the  introduction of the latest safety technologies and connectivity features are continuously enhancing the model lineup maintaining their appeal.
