Mazda studying a rotary with Skyactiv-X technology

Ever since the RX-8 went out of production seven years ago, Mazda has insisted that the rotary engine wasn’t completely dead and that work continued within the company’s walls in Hiroshima, Japan, on the engine.

After announcing plans for an enlarged 16X architecture that never came to fruition, examining hydrogen and countless rumors of its return, Mazda confirmed that a Wankel would finally return as a small range extender for its first battery-electric car coming in 2019 and see work in an upcoming Toyota self-driving EV.
