Mazda has revealed the all-new CX-60 plug-in hybrid will arrive in the UK this autumn, with prices starting from £43,950.
The Mazda CX-60 is the first plug-in hybrid offered by the manufacturer, combining a Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with a 100 kW electric motor and a 17.8 kWh high-capacity battery.
This combination of engine and motor delivers a total system output of 322hp and an abundant torque output of 500Nm, making it the most powerful road car Mazda has ever produced.
It also offers 39 miles of combined electric motor-powered driving with the vehicle running at 62mph or less and 42 miles of city EV range, while the performance of the combined drivetrain delivers a 0-62mph performance of just 5.8 seconds.
Three trims will be available from launch – Exclusive-Line, Homura and Takumi – with Convenience Pack and Driver Assistance Pack optional and a Comfort Pack available on Exclusive-Line.
Exclusive-Line (£43,950) is the base-spec model and is characterised by a large range of equipment as stanrd.
Homura (£46,700) is the mid-range model and offers various styling upgrades to the interior and exterior as well as Mazda’s ground-breaking Driver Personalisation System: this recognises the occupant of the driver’s seat via facial recognition and automatically adjust the surroundings – seat position, steering wheel, mirrors, head-up display, even the sound and climate control settings – to fit their physique as well as their personal preferences.
Takumi (£48,050) features 20-inch black machined alloy wheels and body-coloured mirrors, combined with chrome plated signature wing grille treatment and side window surround, while the gloss black bar type radiator grille design is another feature unique to this flagship grade.
Commenting on the reveal of the Mazda CX-60, Mazda Motors UK Ltd, Managing Director, Jeremy Thomson, said: “the Mazda CX-60 heralds the start of a new chapter for Mazda, not only is it our first car with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, but it also sets new standards for interior quality, design and technology.”
