Mazda Combustion Technology News Sends Jolt Through Electric Car Industry
John Harrington for 247WallStreet: Not so fast, electric cars. Japanese automaker Mazda said Tuesday that it had achieved a breakthrough in combustion-engine technology that could keep gasoline-powered vehicles on the road a while longer, remaining a competitor with the electric car.
Mazda said in a press release that the engine technology will be up to 30% more efficient than the carmaker’s conventional systems. It hopes to have the system ready for 2019 models.
Mazda said in a statement:
In light of the rapid changes taking place in the automotive industry, the new vision takes a longer-term perspective and sets out how Mazda will use driving pleasure, the fundamental appeal of the automobile, to help solve issues facing people, the earth and society. … Mazda hopes to help create a future in which people, the earth and society can coexist with cars, to enrich people’s lives through a car ownership experience that celebrates driving, and to become a brand with which customers feel a strong emotional connection.
