Mazda Motor Corporation has announced plans to expand its SUV line-up from 2022 onwards. Two new models from the company’s Large Product group, the Mazda CX-60 and Mazda 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. The new Mazda CX-60 will feature two-row seating, while the CX-80 will be three-row.

Mazda say that the CX-60 and CX-80 will spearhead the European introduction of plug-in hybrid models to the range for the first time, with both SUVs using a straight four cylinder petrol engine 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.

The brand has also announced that during the first half of 2022, a new version of the Mazda MX-30 electric SUV 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 Mazda CX-5 has recently been updated and the brand says it remains one of the core models driving Mazda’s business globally, along with the compact CX-30.
