The deal, announced today, comes about a month after Toyota said it would take a 5 percent stake in Mazda and that the two would pursue electric vehicles and necessary research and development, along with other automotive strategies together. The new company is called EV Common Architecture Spirit Co Ltd., and Toyota will own 90 percent, while Mazda and Denso will each have a 5 percent share. Vehicles produced through the new company will also use Toyota’s modular platform architecture that’s being used in models such as the Prius and 2018 Camry. Everything from small cars to SUVs are planned, according to the news release.

Could an EV Be the First Production Car to 300MPH?

  Could an EV Be the First Production Car to 300MPH? Electric cars are much more efficient at turning energy into speed. Does that mean the world's fastest production car might someday be battery powered?So does that mean an electric car might be the perfect platform to break 300 mph?

Both automakers are set to make future EVs off of Prius platform.

Electric vehicles of all sizes are planned

While Toyota has been a gas-electric hybrid pioneer for two decades now, one of the world’s largest automakers has been surpassed by smaller rivals introducing fully electric vehicles for mass production. Its plug-in hybrid Prius Prime has just 22 miles of range on a full charge, roughly half of a Chevrolet Volt’s electric-only range.

Mazda has also pledged an allegiance to the internal combustion engine with its SkyActiv-X gasoline engines — promising diesel-like fuel economy with significantly reduced emissions — set to appear in their production cars over the next few years. But it needs a plug-in to comply with California’s zero-emissions vehicle mandate, as well as looming federal fuel economy average target. Mazda has said it will start selling an electric vehicle of some kind in 2019.

With major automakers pledging to make all of their cars electric in some form, and unlikely companies trying to get in the EV game, Mazda and Toyota’s new company is a likely pairing of two car firms that need to make up for lost time in this automotive field.

Mazda packs a double-concept punch in Tokyo .
One will preview the next Mazda3, while the other previews something.Mazda announced Tuesday that it will bring two brand new concepts to the Tokyo Motor Show in late October. The first is the silver model you see below. It looks like the RX Vision a bit, except it has four doors. Mazda promises the concept will highlight a "more profound expression" of the company's current design language, which is what many concepts do, to be fair.
