With everybody now scrambling to find a solution for the fuel emission regulations all over the world, it does feel like there is no place for the Mazda rotary engine right now but that does not mean it is over yet.
According to Automotive News, they have not given up on the rotary engine yet. We might not see it come is with an RX model but according to Mazda, we might see the engine come as an electric car range extender.
In fact, there were some that believe that such a model is not that far away. That would explain why Mazda decided to continue working on their rotary engine despite saying that the RX models are no more.
Mazda also added later that they might release some pure electric and range extended models as early as 2019. What do you think of Mazda’s new plan for the rotary engine?
