The all-new Mazda CX-60 introduces the company's first plug-in full hybrid technology to the European SUV market

Mazda CX-60 Revealed With 323 HP As Brand's First Plug-In Hybrid, It can cover 63 kilometers (39 miles) in purely electric mode.





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/241 kW 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 bodyshell 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 - Mazda's 48V mild hybrid system - they combine high output with excellent fuel economy and emissions performance.



Because weight is always a concern when talking about PHEVs, it’s worth pointing out the Mazda CX-60 tips the scales at 2,070 kilograms (4,564 pounds) with the 20-inch wheels or a slightly lower 2,055 kg (4,530 lbs) with the base 18-inch alloys. It's technically the unladen weight, which takes into account a 75-kg (165-lbs) driver and fuel tank (with 50 liters or 13.2 gallons in this case) at 90 percent.


Finished in a new Rhodium White Premium Metallic paint, the CX-60 has a long hood to accommodate longitudinally mounted engines. Since we’re on this subject, the PHEV based around the four-cylinder unit will be followed by inline-six gasoline and diesel engines. Known as e-Skyactiv X, the former is going to have a 3.0-liter displacement while the latter will be a 3.3-liter Skyactiv-D. Both have been developed with 48-volt mild-hybrid tech to cut fuel consumption and emissions.


All three powertrains work with a newly developed eight-speed automatic transmission with a multi-plate clutch replacing the hydraulic torque converter. In the case of the PHEV, the electric motor is built into the transmission and works directly on the input shaft for a quicker response. Once you're out of battery juice, it can be recharged at 7.2 kW, but Mazda isn't saying how long it takes. We do know regenerative braking is supported.


EXTERIOR DESIGN



Careful and meticulous development of the imposing front face and long nose/truncated rear silhouette give the Mazda CX-60 its powerful and dynamic shape. The Kodo design concept of 'breathing life into a car' aims to create a form in which the car as a moving object resembles a living create running at full speed.


Its framework expresses stability, much as a living organism uses its skeletal structure and muscles to firmly grip the ground. This is the essence of Kodo design. The Mazda CX-60 uses its strong framework to convey its skeletal appeal when viewed from any angle.



The front grille adopts an adjusted aspect ratio which shows off the height of the grille more than on other Mazdas. The signature wing now features illumination functionality to further accentuate the powerful look of the grille.


The front lamp design is also new for Mazda. Unlike previous models, the Mazda CX-60 headlight arrangement features vertically stacked lamps and an L-shaped lighting signature to create a new expression that conveys the strength of an SUV.


In profile, the relatively rearward positioning of the cabin on the body lends the vehicle a dynamic sense of movement. The SUV's sense of commanding toughness is enlivened by elegant surface treatment, with a streak of light which beams down from the cabin's rear edge and grazes the rear wheel arch before reaching the ground. This simple yet powerful motion represents a boldness seen in Japanese calligraphy and modern art, in refusing to be bound by the frame of the canvas.


In keeping with the practice of adding an emblem to the front wing of sports cars, the Mazda CX-60 features a side signature to reflect the excellent driving performance offered by its front-engine, rear-wheel drive architecture.



The rear lighting signature also adopts an L-shaped design to match that of the front lamp clusters. The widely spread consecutive horizontal styling creating a lighting signature appropriate to a premium class vehicle.


Created through a further evolution of Mazda's Takuminuri painting technology, a new Rhodium White finish joins the company's Soul Red Crystal and Machine Grey as a third signature body colour.


The choice of white was inspired by the Japanese aesthetic belief that less is more, and the 'nothingness' of Zen Buddhism, creating the image of a machine focused on the dense luminosity of metal. In contrast to a conventional white pearl finish, Rhodium White has a hard shine with an even more dense particle texture, accentuating the Mazda CX-60's powerful, graceful form.


In all, a choice of eight body colours are available: Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, Sonic Silver, Platinum Quartz, Arctic White, Rhodium White, Machine Grey and Soul Red Crystal.


The new Mazda CX-60 may be fitted with either 18-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels.


INTERIOR DESIGN



The interior design follows the exterior in expressing the strength of the Mazda CX-60's front-engine, rear-wheel drive SUV architecture. The wide instrument panel features continuous lines which run through the sides air vents into the door trim, reinforcing the spaciousness of the interior.



The strong shape of the centre console penetrates the cabin space from front to back, expressing both structural strength and the presence of a longitudinally mounted engine, a new 8-speed automatic transmission, and rearwheel drive.


Uniquely Mazda and deeply rooted in Japanese heritage, the interior celebrates the living quality of natural wood grain and high quality woven textiles, with Japanese craftsmanship achieving the highest levels of quality in both materials. Textures are created using both traditional methods and new technologies.



The treatment of the maple wood trim refl ects the Japanese aesthetic of Hacho - asymmetrical balance, or intentional unevenness. The woven fabrics' diverse patterns and yarns respond sensitively to changes in light, and a Japanese stitching technique called Kakenui creates 'hanging stitching' seams with spaces between the trim fabrics revealing a glimpse of the material beneath.



White ambient lighting on the front and rear door trim brings out the best of the colour and texture of the interior finishes.


Optional mid and high grade versions of the Mazda CX-60 feature a large, 1,060 mm x 995 mm panoramic roof to expand the range of visibility and light for rear seat passengers. The roofl ine between the B pillars has been designed to reduce weight and enhance safety against side impacts.



Mazda will sell the CX-60 in EU in Prime, Exclusive, Homura, and Takumi trim levels, with pricing varying from €47,390 to €52,890. If you want the white paint, that'll be an extra €950. Options like a panoramic glass roof, a driver assistance package, leather upholstery convenience & sound package will be offered as well depending on trim.
