Mazda to start selling electric cars in 2019Staff Writer | November 17, 2016
Mazda Motor CEO said the company plans to start selling electric vehicles in 2019, joining rivals at home that face tightening emission standards abroad.
Green energy CEO Masamichi Kogai:
Nissan Motor has sold its Leaf electric vehicle since 2010 and Toyota Motor said this month it wanted to get itself ready for commercializing electric cars.
Kogai said Mazda would add original features to its electric cars to differentiate itself.
He said engineers were looking at ways to keep the cars running longer when the battery was nearly dead. ■
