Electrifying the Road: Mazda Confirms Hybrid Powertrains for CX-50 and Next-Gen CX-5 Models

Both compact SUVs will add a hybrid option, and Mazda plans to introduce a new EV based on a dedicated platform in 2027.


  • Mazda plans to launch a hybrid CX-50 later this year, and the next-gen CX-5 will have a hybrid too, according to details in the company's latest financial results.
  • Mazda previously confirmed that the CX-50 would add a Toyota-sourced hybrid powertrain; the next CX-5 will use a Mazda-developed hybrid setup.
  • While its first EV--the California-only, range-limited MX-30--was a commercial flop, Mazda will launch another electric car in 2027 using a dedicated platform.

At the moment, the only electrified Mazda sold in the United States is the mid-size CX-90, which is offered with a plug-in-hybrid powertrain. However, it looks like the lineup will soon add another one, with the Mazda CX-50 destined to get the hybrid treatment. That's according to information released as part of the company's latest first-quarter financial results, which include plans to introduce a hybrid CX-50 in the second half of this year.

Hybrid CX-5 and CX-50

Despite the recent news, this isn't the first time we've heard about it. A couple of years ago, Mazda vehicle dynamics engineer Dave Coleman confirmed that the CX-50 would adopt a gas-electric powertrain that was developed by Toyota. But that was the last we had heard about it until last month when we reached out to a Mazda spokesperson who confirmed to Car and Driver that the "CX-50 hybrid is coming soon" and that more details will be shared in June. Earlier this year, Mazda launched the CX-50 HEV in the Chinese market; it uses the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid's powertrain, which pairs a gas-fed 2.5-liter four-cylinder with up to two electric motors. It could preview the version that we'll get in the U.S.
