- Mazda has revealed more about its new 2024 CX-90 three-row SUV.
- We now know that it will be offered with a plug-in-hybrid powertrain, in addition to the previously announced inline-six.
- The teaser image showing the rear reveals a glimpse of the taillight design and the “e-Skyactiv PHEV” badge.
The new 2024 CX-90 three-row SUV will be Mazda’s first plug-in-hybrid model in the US when it debuts next month. The company confirmed that a PHEV option would be offered, in addition to the previously announced inline-six engine, and partially revealed the crossover’s rear end and an “e-Skyactiv PHEV” badge with blue accents.
We expect the plug-in-hybrid model to use the same setup as the European-market CX-60, which we drove earlier this year. The SUV, which rides on the same longitudinal platform as the CX-90, has a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor that produces 323 horsepower and 369 pound-feet. A 17.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides a claimed electric-only range of 35 miles, though Mazda hinted that the US version of this powertrain could have slightly different specifications.
From what we’ve seen so far, we think the styling of the CX-90 will largely be in line with Mazda’s current SUV lineup, although the shape of the taillights looks a bit more angular and modern. The interior also tends to be luxurious, as the CX-90 is part of Mazda’s ongoing market push. The longitudinal platform and inline-six engine will help the new model compete with premium brand SUVs, as well as the PHEV variant which can compete with hybrid SUVs such as the BMW X5, Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe and Volvo XC90.
We’ll know more about the CX-90 when it debuts in January 2023, so stay tuned for more information on this new SUV model.
