The Mazda 2 Hybrid is the perfect option for those environmentally conscious as the new model provides drivers with the best of both petrol and electric worlds, without the need to ever use a charging cable. Your emissions are automatically lowered when driving in EV mode as the modern hybrid technology recycles energy back into the battery when braking, which means zero tailpipe emissions. The Mazda 2 Hybrid uses smart hybrid technology to switch between electric, petrol, or a mix of both fuel types to ensure you get optimal performance in all situations without having to change your lifestyle, schedule or driving habits.
With an exciting new range of colour options, stylish and sporty exterior and intelligently configured interior, the Mazda 2 Hybrid comes with a new design that is sure to turn heads. You’ll be able to pick from 3 different specifications, starting with the Pure grade which comes with a range of standard features such as Apple Carplay, 7” touch screen infotainment display and automatic headlights. The Agile features a standard rear-view camera, an 8" centre display and a 6-speaker sound system – along with 15” alloy wheels and smart keyless entry. The Comfort Pack can be added to the Agile grade and adds features such as front sport seats, dual-zone climate control and a digital speedometer. Finally, the top grade level has attractive features, such as the black wing mirrors and 16” alloy wheels, that make the Style grade a stylish choice. Inside, you'll be comfortable in the half leatherette sports style seats and the dual-zone climate control air-conditioning. All models in the range will have the same 1.5-litre hybrid engine.
The Mazda 2 Hybrid features four different driving modes which can be selected to suit the needs of the driver. Normal Mode provides an optimal balance of fuel economy, quietness, and dynamic performance - suitable for normal driving. Power Mode can be used for when extra power is needed by controlling the hybrid system to provide quick, powerful acceleration. Eco-Drive Mode helps the vehicle drive in the most eco-friendly manner, improving fuel economy by making the engine work in the most efficient manner and by controlling the operation of the air conditioning system. EV Mode forces the vehicle into full electric mode. EV mode is switched off when the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 31mph or when the acceleration demand is too high.
