Mazda RX-9 Kick Out In Favor Of EV?

By  | 

When Mazda announce that they are still working on the rotary engine, most people believe that the engine would eventually be fitted onto a Mazda RX-9 model but it looks like that is far from what Mazda had it mind for the future of their rotary engine.

According to Mazda, they have found a new breakthrough with their rotary engine development and that we will be seeing the engine work as a supporting performance engine for an EV setup. It looks like the development has lead to the engine now being able to charge the battery of an EV.

With that in mind, we should be seeing the engine makes an appearance under a new Mazda EV model by 2020. Of course, we do not know what model it will be coming with. Some people predicted that it is going to be an EV RX-9 but we will have to wait and see.
