Skyactiv-G four-cylinder direct injection with a 100 kW electric motora 17.8 kWh 355 V high-capacity battery and an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission.
The addition of a gasoline motor and an electric motor makes possible a total power development of 241 kW/327 hp and powerful torque delivery of up to 500 Nm, making the Mazda CX-60 PHEV the most powerful series production model in the company’s history. Its performance is impressive, with an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.8 seconds.
According to the brand, WLTP fuel consumption in the combined cycle is only 1.5 l/100 km and this is because thanks to the Mazda CX-60’s e-Skyactiv electric motor we have an electric range of 63 km while the vehicle is traveling at less than 100 km/h. The battery is fully charged from empty in 4 hours, with a normal AC charger compatible with the 220-240 V mains.

The high-voltage battery has been placed between the front and rear axle, in a position as low as possible within the bodywork, so that the center of gravity is particularly low. This feature, combined with a permanent all-wheel drive system with torque transfer between axles, provides this model with extraordinary maneuverability, on a par with the best in the segment.
