I remember Mazda claimed to have made a breakthrough in Wankel rotary efficiency a few years ago, but then everything went quiet. I love Mazda for being unconventional, but they need to just let go of rotary combustion. Well, combustion in general.This is Designed to be a BEVx, utilizing a small rotary engine as a range-extender, making a battery pack larger than that required for normal driving range redundant.
GM called it an EREV...The Volt?
WOULD A MAZDA RX THAT USES A ROTARY AS A RANGE EXTENDER STILL BE A TRUE RX-8 SUCCESSOR?I think they missed a trick here. Mx5 e would have been very interesting with that battery size.
