Mazda CX-60 PHEV Produces 327PS And 500Nm In A New Kodo Design

Mazda CX-60 PHEV Just For European Customers.

The Mazda CX-60 PHEV spearheads the European introduction of plug-in hybrid models with a powertrain which combines a Skyactiv-G 2.5, four-cylinder direct injection petrol with a large, 100 kW electric motor and a 355V, 17.8 kWh high-capacity battery.

This combination of engine and motor delivers a total system output of 327 PS and abundant torque of 500 Nm, making it the most powerful road car Mazda has ever produced. The Mazda CX-60 PHEV delivers highly impressive performance, accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 5.8 seconds, and on to a limited maximum speed of 200 km/h.

Conversely, and most notably when running on electric motor power alone, the new Mazda PHEV displays outstanding environmental credentials. WLTP combined fuel consumption is just 1.5 l/100 km, and WLTP combined CO2 emissions only 33 g/km.

The Mazda CX-60 e-Skyactiv PHEV offers 60 km of motor-powered driving with the vehicle running at 100 km/h or less.

The positioning of the high voltage battery between the front and rear axles and as low as possible within the body-shell gives the new Mazda CX-60 PHEV a particularly low centre of gravity.

This, combined with a permanent all-wheel drive system incorporating shaft-driven transfer of torque between the axles, gives the car superior handling characteristics on a par with the best in the premium segment.

Developed using the ‘right sizing’ concept which calls for optimised displacement to improved fuel and power efficiency, new generation, straight-six, 3.0 litre e-Skyactiv X petrol and 3.3 litre Skyactiv-D diesel engines with two different power outputs will also be introduced.

Featuring M Hybrid Boost, which is Mazda’s 48V mild hybrid system, they combine high output with excellent fuel economy and emissions performance.

All three power-plants are mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission and Mazda’s i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system. The e-Skyactiv D diesel unit and the e-Skyactiv X petrol engine may also be equipped with rear-wheel drive only.

Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) offers a choice of four drive modes (plus EV mode for the PHEV) to provide optimum control and driving pleasure in every driving scenario.

The all-new Mazda CX-60 is based on Mazda’s Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture, which features numerous enhancements that offer excellent driving dynamics.

Adopting Mazda’s human-centric approach, these include body-shell rigidity that ensures drivers can feel vehicle response without lag, seats that make it even easier for every occupant to maintain balance while the car is moving, suspension that stabilises vehicle posture while driving, and a Mazda-unique vehicle posture control system – Kinematic Posture Control (KPC).

A comprehensive range of advanced i-Activsense driver assistance systems ensures active safety at the highest level, and targets a Euro NCAP 5-star safety rating.

Several new technologies debut in the Mazda CX-60: See-Through View – a next-generation 360-degree monitor with extended field of view at low speeds; Hill Descent Control (HDC), which assists in safely descending steep slopes with slippery or rough road surfaces; Cruise Control (i-ACC), which can now incorporate speed limits from Traffic Sign Recognition; and Vehicle Exit Warning (BSM) for rear-approaching road users.

There is no indication that this all new powerful Mazda SUV will make it to Malaysian showrooms as there is already the fast selling CX-5 and CX-8 for Malaysians to buy in a variety of engine options.
