Mazda may just be pulling a trick on General Motors.
While GM gets the spotlight and the pressure associated with its new Volt, Mazda may be working on a sneak attack.
What makes the Volt unique is that it’s a purely electric car.
Whenever the gas engine is needed, it is only used to generate power for the electric motor.
Autocar is now reporting that Mazda is working on a similar type of car, using a rotary engine to charge the electric motor.
Furthermore, Mazda seems to already be utilizing the technology in a test car that looks like a Mazda 5.
