Thats too Bad too hear Mazda....If I bought a new car today I would get a EV, it just makes more sense and so much better for the Environment. If you flood the market with EV people have no choice and make the right choice for a less co2 future. I hope Mazada does not have big money in Oil.

making high-efficient motors and high-capacity batteries for cars including mining the rare earth metals to produce them, disposing them in large quantities when the cars are to be scrapped, will contribute more damage to the environment than gasoline or diesel engine.
