With an anticipated boost in power output, this impressive model is all set to redefine the meaning of acceleration.

With its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the current Miata generates 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque and it is available across three trim levels including Sport, Club, and Gran Touring.

Imagine the Miata responding effortlessly to your every whim as you glide through corners. That would be a sports car fanatic’s dream come true. Like the existing Miata, Mazda is expected to introduce a lightweight design for the new one. At just 2,400 lbs, the current generation MX-5 Miata is among the lightest vehicles in its class. The lighter the frame, the more nimble, responsive, and almost telepathic your ride will be.

It might seem contrary to Mazda’s goals to electrify the Miata, since EV batteries are heavy. The latest technology might enable Mazda engineers to strike a balance that minimizes the car’s weight while maintaining its performance.

In a world where emission concerns are on the rise and EV sales are skyrocketing, it’s not surprising that Mazda would electrify the MX-5 Miata. In order to comply with the new Euro 7 emission standards, Mazda plans to introduce three new EVs by 2025.

As of right now, Mazda has not revealed the extent of electric upgrades it will add to its Japanese roadster. Mazda traditionally does not offer plug-in and fully electric models, so hybrids are the most likely.
