In recent years, Mazda has become the unspoken leader in fuel economy of major world automakers, with a lineup average of 34.1 mpg, raising the bar to for the rest of the industry. Mazda takes this leadership seriously and plans to keep it.
However, Mazda currently only sells models powered by gasoline. This makes Mazda’s lead particularly impressive, maintaining such fuel economy without hybrid models. Plus, Mazda has a new engine system on the horizon.
In an interview, CEO of Mazda North American Operations Masahiro Moro said that a new line of their Skyactiv engines will debut in 2017. These are the engines that have thus far led Mazda to their remarkable fuel economy stats.
It is safe to assume that Mazda Skyactiv 2 engines will raise the average fuel economy of a new Mazda vehicle even higher, maintaining Mazda’s lead throughout the industry.
