Mazda Pulls Out Performance PHEV for Europe

Mazda has teased its European debut of its plug-in hybrid version of the compact crossover CX-60 with claims its power output will exceed 300bhp.

The automaker will unveil full details of the PHEV next month as the first of two new models from the company’s Large Product Group that will be introduced throughout Europe during the next two years. It says the move “demonstrates Mazda’s commitment to a multi-solution approach to sustainable mobility and the principal of the right solution at the right time”.

It will be joined later on by the CX-80 which will feature three-row seating, and followed by other PHEV versions for the CX-70 and CX-9 which are the other models in the Large Product Group. The Mazda CX-60 PHEV combines a 2.5-liter, straight-four gasoline engine with a performance-enhancing electric motor.
