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.
