According to Left Lane News, Mazda is planning to make a diesel-related announcement at the upcoming New York International Auto Show in April.
The rumor is no surprise considering that Mazda has previously confirmed new diesel engines for the North America. Mazda also hinted at a high-mileage Mazda2 that could yield as much as 70 miles per gallon utilizing the automaker’s new SKYACTIV technologies.
Mazda continues to refine its all-new gasoline and diesel engine technology, along with new transmissions. The automaker anticipates that the next-generation of Mazda products will get 30 percent higher fuel economy thanks to these technologies. When the SKY-D finally arrives Stateside, Mazda will become the first modern Japanese automaker to sell a diesel engine here.
No confirmation has been made yet, so expect more details to emerge close to the NYIAS in April.
