Hybrid Car Information

Mazda Hybrid

 

After having excited consumers with hints of a Mazda Tribute Hybrid, it seems that Mazda has decided not to adopt the hybrid power train of the Ford Escape hybrid, the Tribute's "parent."

 

Mazda however has proven its dedication to alternative fuel vehicles, and has even designed dual fuel engines. In late 2003, Mazda unveiled a gasoline-hydrogen version of their infamous RENESIS rotary engine at a Tokyo Motor Show. At similar shows Mazda also showed the world an Electric Motor Assist turbocharger and the Mazda Hybrid System.

 

The RX-8 would be the first to benefit from this hybrid technology, and a gasoline-hydrogen version of the RX-8 Hydrogen RE is currently being tested for production.
