The CX-60 made a great debut, competing in a segment Mazda hadn't been in since the CX-9. The distribution of the PHEV and diesel versions was about 50:50 percent, but the latter variant arrived in showrooms a few months after the hybrid. Therefore, the year 2024 may end with the combustion version prevailing. In contrast, of the 1,343 Mazda 3s sold, half were sedans, which is very rare in the compact car segment.

2023 was practically the last year for Mazda6 sales – with just over 100 units remaining in stock. Although it is one of the brand's most popular models, Mazda unfortunately is not planning a successor yet. Production of the Mazda 2 has already been discontinued, but production of the modern Mazda 2 Hybrid, i.e. the Toyota Yaris with the changed badge, will begin at the end of this January.

In 2024, the updated MX-5 will also enter showrooms. The popular roadster will have a slightly modified nose and lights, including: new multimedia and a special track mode for the differential mechanism.

The CX-80's debut promises to be particularly interesting. It will be a large SUV, offering three rows of seating and luxury equipment, and a potential rival to the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, and perhaps even models from premium brands. When exactly will it appear in theaters? Mazda currently answers: “Faster than you expect.” Well, let's give it time until the holiday.

The CX-60 is really the model that attracts most customers from other brands, especially the premium segment, to Mazda. This is the direction Mazda plans to head in the coming years. In 2030, it wants to call itself a premium brand and sell 200,000 units in Europe. cars per year, of which in Poland > 10 thousand Moreover, Mazda expects growth to reach 70 percent by 2030. The brand's sales in Europe will be electric models.

But until then, Mazda is focusing on a “multi-solution” strategy, meaning it intends to continue offering a wide range of engines, and thus will not move away from combustion engines. “We are taking more precise steps to ensure that the range does not meet customer expectations,” said Simon Soltysek, Public Relations Director of Mazda Motor Poland during the New Year conference.

For the years 2022-2027, the Japanese announced the launch of five new hybrid cars, five plug-in hybrid cars, and three electric models. Work is currently underway on a new scalable EV-Skyactiv platform dedicated to electric models. We should see the first car using this architecture on the market in 2027. If the Mazda 6 returns, it will likely be in electric form as soon as possible.
