The next Mazda 2 is to be redesignated the Toyota Yaris

Toyota and Mazda have been working on some techniques for a long time, according to the British website Autocar, which brings the report with a link to the presentation, which Mazda published as a supplement to the company’s financial results. However, it has not yet happened that Mazda would sell a Toyota passenger car with its own logos in Europe. However, this is expected to happen over the next two years.

Of course, we probably can’t expect Mazda to just change the name of the car and leave the rest of the design unnoticed, the new Yaris is too conspicuous for that. But he can use the platform and the technology – and maybe a factory in northern France.

In terms of technology, the British say that the new Mazda 2 could also get a hybrid powertrain from the Yaris. This would be Mazda’s first true “full” hybrid on the European market. It will certainly come in handy – emission regulations are uncompromising.

Although this would be a novelty in Europe, similarly close cooperation has already taken place in the USA. Toyota has recently sold a model there called the Yaris, which, however, was the current generation Mazda 2 with a slightly modified design. However, due to lousy sales, the car did not stay on the market for a long time.
