Mazda's massive EV play revealed: 13 electrified models - including electric CX-5, CX-30 and Mazda2 - on the cards by 2025

Mazda is about to push hard into the electric space.

Mazda might be a relative late comer to the electrified party, but the Japanese is brand is set to make up for lost time, revealing a major push into EVs over the next nine years.

And the new models will start arriving as soon as next year, with Mazda embracing full electrification, plug-in hybrid, hybrid and mild-hybrid tech across its entire line-up.

It forms part of what Mazda calls its Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 roadmap, with the brand to unveil SKYACTIV Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture next year that will grow to five hybrid models, five plug-in hybrid models and three new pure EVs by 2025.

The next stage will see more products shifted to SKYACTIV Scalable EV Architecture, with the brand promising that "100 per cent of our products will have some level of electrification, and our EV ratio will be 25 per cent by 2030".

According to Japanese website MotorFan, the three new EVs could be next-generation versions of the CX-30, the CX-5 and the Mazda2.

"The Sustainable Zoom Zoom 2030 vision places the individual at the centre of three areas. The planet, society and humanity," says Mazda.

"We will continue to follow our human-centered development philosophy, which values the humanity and inherent potential of people, into a future where carbon neutrality and CASE are defining the industry.

"By providing vehicles that support people in realizing their full potential, we aim to realize a sustainable and compassionate society."
