Tokyo Motor Show 2015: Mazda’s RX Concept is Less And More


Well, what we mean is less information is more frustrating. Or less exterior styling is more attractive. Or the less we know, the more we want to know. You get the gist.

Unveiled in Tokyo alongside its legendary 1967 Mazda Cosmo Sport, the RX-Vision “represents a vision of the future that Mazda hopes to one day make into reality,” according to the automaker.

Mazda was pretty mum on the details, including how it plans to update its next-generation rotary engine, dubbed Skyactiv-R, to comply with modern fuel economy standards. Will it be a range extender for hydrogen power? Will it be boosted? Will it blend? These are all important questions, people.

According to Mazda “mass production is currently on hold” for its rotary engine, which borders on Tinder levels of baiting. What about limited production? Will the next-generation engine follow the previous generation?

Powertrain questions aside, the two-door, two-seater sportscar (with Jag and other British car making touches) presents an interesting question for Mazda’s future: Where is this all going? As sales of crossovers reach higher and higher, few automakers have room in their portfolios for one slow-selling sportscar — let alone two.

“I look forward to talking with you more about this vision we have revealed here today at the Mazda stand,” Mazda’s President and CEO Masamichi Kogai said in Tokyo. “Mazda will continue to take on new challenges in an effort to build a special bond with our customers and become their ‘one and only’ brand.”

Make that two?
