A MORE SUSTAINABLE, POWERFUL DRIVE

MAZDA PLUG-IN HYBRID

 
 

Welcome to a more dynamic and environmentally conscious drive. Our Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain features both an electric motor and petrol engine, giving you all kinds of advantages. From electric only running, to exhilarating power, you can enjoy longer range, exceptional fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

WHY CHOOSE A PLUG-IN HYBRID (PHEV)?

FUEL EFFICIENCY

Our plug-in hybrid uses the electric motor more often than a standard hybrid, with the added benefit of up to 60 kilometers of electric-only running. This means greater fuel efficiency and less money spent on petrol.

GREATER CONVENIENCE

By utilising the petrol engine when required, you’re not limited by your vehicle’s battery capacity. This means you can set off on longer drives without experiencing range anxiety.

LOWER CARBON EMISSIONS

In consuming less fuel, a plug-in hybrid outputs less carbon emissions than a vehicle with a standard petrol engine. This makes for a more environmentally minded drive which is key to our mission for a more sustainable future.

UNCOMPROMISED PERFORMANCE

Being more environmentally focused doesn’t mean the plug-in hybrid is lacking in performance. At your command, you can experience the thrill of 241kW and 500Nm of torque powering you forward.

 

THE PLUG-IN HYBRID SYSTEM EXPLAINED

FEATURES OF PHEV

Our Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) offers the distinct advantages of using both an electric motor and a petrol engine as power sources. The plug-in hybrid can run in pure EV mode for up to 60km thanks to its 17.8kWh battery pack. That’s more than enough for most average Australian daily commutes. You can also switch from EV mode to hybrid running based on your driving needs. With the electric motor and petrol engine working all at once, you can expect an exhilarating driving experience. Even if you can’t plug it in, you can complete your journey as long as you have petrol. 


CHARGING your PHEV

Mazda’s PHEV battery can be easily recharged by plugging into an external power supply such as a household socket*, home AC wallbox charger, or a public charging station. Mazda CX-60 PHEV can achieve a full charge in 5 hours using a normal household 240V socket or 2.5 hours on an AC charger with a type 2 port. When your battery runs low, the hybrid mode is activated and charges the battery via the petrol engine, maintaining the charge level. And in the case of the First-Ever Mazda CX-60 PHEV, braking energy is also harvested and used for charging purposes, a concept known as regenerative braking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does a plug-in hybrid recharge while driving?

Yes. Through two ways. The first being via energy generated by the petrol engine. The second being a process known as regenerative braking. Whenever the vehicle brakes, the kinetic energy produced by the braking system generates and stores electricity in the battery pack. This recaptured energy can then be sent back into the powertrain and power a wide range of electrical systems in the vehicle.

Can a plug-in hybrid run on petrol only?

The Mazda plug-in hybrid doesn’t ever run purely on the petrol engine. The petrol engine will serve as a generator to ensure that the battery pack remains at a minimum state of charge to provide a hybrid drive experience.

How often do I need to charge a PHEV ?

Depending on how often you drive, you might need to charge every night, every few days, or even less frequently. Plug-in and gradually top up the battery when not in use and you are effectively driving an electric vehicle (the average Australian drives just 32km a day). And for those weekends away when your battery runs low, PHEV cars always have the petrol engine to rely on, taking you further on longer trips until you’re ready to recharge once more.

How long does it take to charge a PHEV?

The Mazda plug-in hybrid can achieve a full charge in 5 hours using a normal household 240V socket or around 2.5 hours on an AC charger with a type 2 port.
