The MX-30 R-EV has apparently not been ruled out for the US according to Jeff Guyton, Mazda's North American CEO.

Despite rumors that say otherwise, the Mazda MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV has not been ruled out for the US market. That news comes straight from Jeff Guyton, the automaker's North American CEO, according to Automotive News.

What makes the plug-in variant of the Mazda MX-30 noteworthy is the potential return of Mazda's gasoline-powered rotary engine. It's set to launch this spring in Europe and Japan as a range-extending option for the subcompact crossover. According to Guyton, Mazda made the decision "to prioritize MX-30 rotary for Europe and for Japan where the product is more suited to the roads and those customers. It doesn't mean it's a no for the U.S."

For now, Mazda is prioritizing the launch of the three-row CX-90 for the US market. Ongoing supply chain and production issues have hindered the automaker's launch of new products. As a result, it's shifted its strategy to prioritize the right vehicles for each market, tailoring its product lineup to best match consumer preferences. The CX-90 is built for North America and will be Mazda's first PHEV in the US.
