You can still order it as a drivetrain option from the Mazda website so I’m assuming it’s still going ahead.
Thanks for the proverb, I love these ! And you're right, we don't have an equivalent I can think of right now.We have a saying in the UK 'Horses for courses'. Might not make sense in Dutch though.
..and this setup with a normal 4-stroke engine could give a 2 x times better efficiency. I think Mazda is skating on thin ICE and they can not afford a dud ( ..again..).Its a tiny, very light rotary engine with direct fuel injection under very little stress, operating at a near constant RPM driving a flywheel and then,only doing so when it is operating and the battery requires rejuvination.
