Mazda RX9 concept to debut in Tokyo

Mazda RX9 concept to debut in Tokyo

Mazda had showcased the RX Vision concept in 2016 at the Los Angeles Motor Show and it was touted to be the harbinger of the new RX sportscar. When it seemed as if the new RX project has been shelved for ever, Mazda’s vice president for R&D confirmed its revival at Tokyo next month.

The RX concept to be showcased in Tokyo will be an evolved version of the original RX Vision concept in the direction of the production line. The project certainly had a few speedbumps to negotiate with the Japanese major concentrating on financial issues and restructuring of the corporation’s debts to find a way forward. This obviously meant that ambitious projects like the RX certainly had to be pushed on the back-burner while volume projects like the new CX-5 made it higher on the priority list.

The new RX has big shoes to fill, especially when it will be the successor of legends like the RX7 and the RX8 that blew the world with their rotary might. Known for their rotary engines and insane power, Mazda is continuing in the same direction unlike many of its competitors who have opted for hybrid and electric technology. Which means, an all-new highly efficient yet insanely powerful rotary engine is in the making and we cannot wait for it.

With the second RX concept coming in this year, we can expect the RX9, as it might be called, to debut in 2020.
