Mazda takes responsibility for the emissions produced by its cars, not just when they’re being driven, but also when they are made and when they reach the end of their use. To reduce the CO2 emissions during the entire life of the vehicle, Mazda uses a Life Cycle Assessment, which allows it to pinpoint areas that can reduce the environmental burden of car manufacture, delivery, use, and recycling. It is our ongoing mission to reduce the environmental impact of Mazda vehicles at every phase of their life. We use a Life Cycle Assessment to measure, and subsequently reduce the emissions from our supply chain, factories, transportation, the vehicles themselves, and end-of-life programs.
There is more to reducing emissions than simply switching over to battery electric vehicles. If the electrical energy used to charge these cars is not produced sustainably then the emissions are merely moved to power stations. That’s why Mazda offers a multi-solution approach, providing a range of efficient internal combustion, hybrid,plug-in hybrid, and electric cars to suit customers’ needs and the power-generation situations across the world.
Choosing the Mazda that is best for you and the planet depends on where and how you live. Mazda evaluated the CO2 emissions in the life cycle of internal combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles in five regions of the world.
13 new electrified models between 2022 and 2025: five hybrid electric vehicles, five plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and three electric vehicles.
Mazda will introduce multiple electric vehicles.
100% of Mazda products will be electrified and pure-electric vehicles will account for at least 25% of those.
Mazda has installed solar panels at its head office in Hiroshima, Japan. Our Hiroshima factory is now served by a 1.1 MW solar array that provides power to the entire plant and is also used to charge the batteries of the all-electric Mazda MX-30, which is made on site.
