Mazda Motor announced plans to expand its global SUV lineup starting from 2022.

The new models will include the Mazda CX-50 to be produced in our new U.S. plant, as well as models in our Large Product group, including the Mazda CX-60, Mazda CX-70, Mazda CX-80, and Mazda CX-90, all of which are slated for introduction in various global markets between 2022 and 2023.

We aim to offer customers a diverse choice of SUVs able to provide both the driving pleasure and the latest environmental performance to meet demands in the continuously growing global SUV segment.

In November, Mazda will reveal the CX-50, the next crossover to join its lineup in the U.S. and Canada.

The CX-50 will share its platform with Mazda’s latest generation products, CX-30 and Mazda3, with enhanced all-wheel drive (AWD) capabilities and functionality for consumers with outdoor active lifestyles.

The production of the CX-50 will begin in January 2022 at the new Mazda-Toyota joint venture factory—Mazda Toyota Manufacturing, U.S.A., Inc. (MTMUS)—in Huntsville, Alabama.

Following CX-50, Mazda will introduce two additional mid-size crossover SUVs for the Canadian and U.S. markets from its all-new large platform: the CX-90 followed by the CX-70.

New models

These new models will feature Mazda’s new longitudinal architecture and introduce turbocharged straight-six gasoline engine models and plug-in hybrid models to give consumers various options providing powerful, yet environmentally responsible performance.

A major difference between the models will be passenger occupancy, with the CX-90 providing three rows of seats and the CX-70 offering two rows of seats.

The proportions of both vehicles will be optimized for Canadian consumers with expanded interior cabin and cargo spaces.

While CX-50 and CX-70 will be all-new additions to Mazda’s lineup in Canada, CX-90 will serve as Mazda’s only three-row SUV offering, in place of the current generation CX-9.

The design, features, pricing, and trim details of the CX-50, CX-70, and CX-90 will be announced closer to their on-sale dates.

Markets with narrower roads and smaller parking lots such as Europe and Japan will welcome the introduction of the two-row CX-60 and the three-row CX-80.

These models will primarily feature plug-in hybrid models with straight-four gasoline engines combined with a motor drive.

The straight-six new generation Skyactiv-X gasoline engine and Skyactiv-D diesel engine will also be introduced in combination with a 48V mild hybrid system.

In parallel, we will also mark the global introduction of the MX-30 series plug-in hybrid using a rotary generator in the first half of 2022.

Additionally, we will create a new product line that uses an EV-dedicated platform from around 2025. Through the introduction of these models, Mazda plans to complete the electrification of all the models it produces by 2030.

In the meantime, the Mazda CX-5, which has retained constant popularity since its launch in 2012, will see its design evolve and its model lineup enhanced through continuous product improvement.
