Japanese giant Mazda will formally join the electric vehicle business from 2019, said during the presentation of her Zoom-Zoom Sustainable 2030 vision. However, the company made it clear that they initially took these vehicles only to regions with high percentages of clean energy generation or imposing limitations of fuel vehicles.
With this project, the company hopes to reduce carbon dioxide emissions of which it is directly responsible in almost half in relation to the levels of 2010 by 2030 and 90%, no less, by 2050.
But the company also took the opportunity to make clear that this does not mean to abandon all traditional engines. “Continued efforts to refine the combustion engine because it remains present in most of the world’s cars in the years to come and therefore has the most potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, Mazda pointed out.
So, for 2019 launch innovations that reduces the fuel consumption of traditional cars. The first of these is the Skyactiv-X engine, which was presented as the first gasoline engine with compression ignition, and the second is the combustion method of own development The spark controlled the ignition of the compression, It is possible to ignite it by compression And facilitate a smooth transition between compression ignition and spark ignition, Forbes explains.
In order to pay for safety and to eliminate traffic accidents, Mazda will start, from 2020, the tests of autonomous driving technology, which are in development today (in the mean time, you can seat on a chesterfield sofa and enjoy the wonders that the car industry has today). By 2025, the company expects to equip all its cars with this system.
Finally, the implementation of safety technology in the activity has been increased, which helps drivers and recognize and evaluate potential hazards, explains the same medium. “In Japan, these technologies are already incorporating the standard equipment and gradually normalize in other markets from 2018,” closes the vision of the firm.
