Mazda 2 hatchback of 2022 model year has been presented in Europe.

The official presentation of the Japanese Mazda 2 hatchback version of the 2022 model year has taken place. The novelty has received a full hybrid system, as well as a hybrid powertrain.

The previous generation Toyota Yaris, sold in many markets, was essentially a redesigned version of the Mazda 2.

Now, the fourth-generation Mazda 2 compact hatchback for the Old Continent market is presented as the Yaris with Mazda logos.

The connection between the two Japanese automakers allows Mazda to launch its first full hybrid in Europe.

The electric motor works in conjunction with an un-supercharged three-cylinder gasoline engine, with a 1.5-liter displacement and 91 hp. (68 kW).

With the combined power of these two, the 2022 model year Mazda 2 produces 114 horsepower, more than you’ll ever need from a small city-oriented hatchback.

The electrified motor helps the B-segment hatchback accelerate to 100 km/h from a spot in 9.7 seconds and to a top speed of 175 km/h.

Depending on wheel size (15 or 16 inches), the hybrid version will consume only 3.8 liters per 100 km in the WLTP mixed cycle and emit only 87 g/km in the most economical configuration.

Because it charges itself, the car’s hybrid drivetrain does all the work and knows how to distribute power to create the perfect balance between fuel economy and performance.

Mazda will sell its Yaris under the new brand name with a choice of three packages: Hybrid Pure, Hybrid Agile and Hybrid Select.

The 286-liter cargo capacity and 2,560-millimeter wheelbase are clearly identical to those of the Yaris.

Like the Toyota donor car and the high-performance Yaris Cross, the new Mazda 2 boasts a five-star Euro NCAP rating.

This is Mazda’s first hybrid model on the European market. True, it is a copy of Toyota Yaris, the only differences are in the logo and small details.

The close cooperation of Toyota and Mazda continues to give the world car market technical «twins»: the new version of hatchback Mazda 2, as it was supposed a year ago, will become a modified copy of actual Yaris.

According to the manufacturer’s plan, the new «two» is a great opportunity to remind the market of the Old World about Mazda brand, and another step to development of a new electric platform SKYACTIV EV Scalable Architecture, with which Mazda plans to join the ranks of electric car manufacturers in 2025.

The Mazda 2 will go on sale in spring 2022, and it will be the manufacturer’s first hybrid model on the European market.

Under the hood of this car will be a petrol «three» with a working volume of 1.5 liters.

Its capacity is 91 hp, and due to the additional electric motor the whole hybrid power unit will have 114 hp.

The developers think that this is more than enough for a compact city car from which maximum maneuverability and efficiency are expected. And as far as Europe is concerned, the exhaust emission is also environmentally friendly.

The Mazda 2 offers all these features just fine: with an average mixed fuel consumption of 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers, its CO2 emissions are 114 g/km and it can go from 0 to 100 in 9.7 seconds.

The top speed of this hybrid will be limited to 175 km/h.

At the same time the hybrid control electronics will independently redistribute power between the motors to get the required balance between powertrain performance and fuel efficiency of the gasoline unit.

It is also known that for Mazda 2 will be prepared with three levels of interior. As for the version similar to the 261-horsepower Toyota GR Yaris, such modification under the Mazda brand, most likely, will not appear.
