Due to its ability to meet stricter emissions standards from both the U.S. and European markets, just last week, Mazda has announced the end of the Mazda RX-8 will end its production in June 2012. However, Mazda also stated that a new Mazda RX will be produced later in the future, and we weren’t sure if it’s going to carry a rotary powered engine or a conventional engine.
Today, Mazda has posted a tweet that the company is “zealously” working on “new models” that will be equipped with a new Wankel engine. Here is a tweet in Japanese, which is translated below:
@Mazda_PR マツダ 広報部
“Thank you so much for all your supportive messages concerning the RX-8 and the rotary engine! We are also excited. Mazda is aiming to achieve a breakthrough with the ‘Skyactiv’ technology, and we are zealously working on new models to house the next generation rotary engine. Thank you for your continued support!”
Does this mean that we will see a new Mazda RX in the future? You betcha!
