Almost half of the Mazda CX-60 pre-orders are PHEVs

Mazda Australia has confirmed the rough split of pre-orders for its forthcoming CX-60 SUV, with Australian customers showing a strong bias towards plug-in hybrid and straight-six petrol variants.

Despite being a $12,000 to $12,500 premium over its turbocharged gasoline equivalent, the 2.5-liter “P50e” plug-in hybrid version of Mazda’s BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC rival makes up about 40 percent of its already “Big Order Bank.” .

The entry-level G40e 3.3-liter inline-six turbocharged petrol mild-hybrid also accounts for around 40 percent of current CX-60 pre-orders, while the D50e 3.3-liter inline-six turbo-diesel mild-hybrid takes the lead The remainder accounts for 20 percent share.

In comparison, the G40e starts at $59,800, while the D50e starts slightly higher at $61,800. The mid-spec GT versions of the mild hybrid gasoline and diesel models are also positioned below the base PHEV ($67,800 and $69,800, respectively).

“This obviously continues to change as new orders come in, and the PHEV’s popularity to date is not uncommon as early adopters want to experience the latest Mazda technology,” said a spokesman for Mazda Australia.

“By making sure we give our customers everything they need in terms of information, pricing and specifications, and pre-ordering options as early as possible, this helps us to meet the necessary demand for our market.”

Pricing for the 2023 Mazda CX-60 range was announced in late November 2022, with pre-orders opening shortly thereafter. The first customer deliveries are due around June 2023 at this point.

The CX-60 P50e combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine with a 100 kW/250 Nm electric motor and a 17.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

System outputs are rated at 241 kW and 500 Nm, while zero emissions range “up to 76 kilometers” in local ADR tests – although this is based on the outdated and milder NEDC cycle. According to more precise WLTP specifications in Great Britain, the CX-60 e-Skyactiv PHEV is said to have a range of up to 62 km.

The combined fuel consumption, on the other hand, is an economical 2.1 l/100 km.

Mazda claims the CX-60 PHEV can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, and until recently it was the most powerful road vehicle the company had ever produced – until the new CX-90 with its 254 kW came onto the market 3.3-liter straight-six with turbocharger.
