Mazda Tribute Hybrid (2008)

Just a month or so after its Ford Escape and Escape Hybrid brethren debuted, Mazda has introduced the 2008 Tribute Hybrid. It's gotten some styling tweaks, including a new grille and interior, plus a rear window that now looks more like the Escape's. --->more

Mazda Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid (2007)


Mazda has been leasing a version of their RX8 in Japan with a hydrogen fueled rotary engine since '06. At this year's Tokyo Motor Show, Mazda will be showing a new version of their Hydrogen-RE Hybrid model, and instead of being housed in the RX8 shell, it will be featured in the Premacy. The rotary engine is capable of running for 124 miles, doubling the range of their last model, and charges a lithium ion battery pack the electric motor. Regenerative braking is also featured on this model. In case you were wondering, no - you cannot lease one in the U.S., only Japan. At $3,500 a month, we doubt that Mazda is planning on leasing very many of them anyway. --->more

Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE (2007)


Employing a dual-fuel system, the Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE can run on either high-pressure hydrogen gas or gasoline. This combination offers excellent convenience because it can be driven in remote areas where hydrogen fueling stations are not readily available, easing driver concerns about running out of fuel. In addition, this system boasts great environmental friendliness--zero emission of carbon dioxide ( CO2 ) gas and near zero nitrogen oxide (NOx ) emission when fueled by hydrogen--together with the natural driving feel of an internal combustion engine. --->more
