The 2022 Mazda3: Introducing Mazda’s Mild Hybrid Technology
The Mazda3 continues to be a popular model in Mazda Philippines’ lineup, and for 2022, it offers an even higher level of technology with the introduction of e-Skyactiv-G Mild Hybrid (M Hybrid) Technology.
The new Mazda M Hybrid system significantly improves on the proven Mazda i-eloop system found in the Mazda3, Mazda6, and MX-5. By mating a DC/DC converter, an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG), and Regenerative Friction Brake Coordination system with a new 24-volt M Hybrid Lithium-Ion battery, the 2022 Mazda3 realizes significant improvements in fuel economy and emission reduction.
Using energy stored in the onboard M-Hybrid Lithium battery through regenerative deceleration, the Mazda M-Hybrid system supplements power generation and supply to the Mazda3’s electrical systems. While the new ISG seamlessly restarts the engine in idle-stop (iStop) situations. ISG also assists in smoothening upshifts during gear changes.
Both innovations not only reduce the load on the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine but also improve drivability and engine performance, leading to a more luxurious driving experience.
The system also realizes an improvement in overall power output from 155PS to 164PS. Furthermore, overall torque is improved from 200Nm to 213Nm. The net result is improved fuel economy and more dynamic power delivery.
The 2022 Mazda3 M Hybrid is available in both Fastback and Sedan body types to suit individual customer preferences. As the model line’s new premier offering, it showcases the finest in craftsmanship, build quality, and features already found in the current Premium line.
Together with the introduction of the two new M Hybrid variants, the rest of the 2022 Mazda3 lineup now shifts up to an even higher feature set.
The current Mazda3 Sedan and Fastback Elite have been significantly upgraded to the
- 2.0-liter Skyactiv engine that produces 155ps of power and 200 Nm of torque
- Full black leather
- 12-speaker BOSE Sound System
“The 2022 Mazda3 symbolizes Mazda’s aspirations to be a vehicle manufacturer that aims to create a lasting bond between driver and car while being responsible stewards to both the Earth and Society,” states Tan. “With the introduction of e-Skyactiv-G M Hybrid technology, our customers can now help contribute to Mazda’s long-term goals and share in its philosophy as they enjoy an even more engaging and luxurious drive.”
The 2022 Mazda3 lineup is priced as follows:
Mazda3 2.0L Fastback and Sedan Sport: Php 1,495,000
Mazda3 2.0L Fastback and Sedan M Hybrid: Php 1,695,000
Championing a Sustainable Future: The 2022 Mazda CX-30
Mazda Philippines’ rationalization of its product portfolio for 2022 is in line with corporate efforts to address customer demands and wider environmental concerns. That is why starting this coming model year, the Mazda CX-30 is exclusively available in front-wheel drive M Hybrid configuration.
The 2022 Mazda CX-30 features the e-Skyactiv-G M Hybrid engine and battery system. The mild-hybrid powertrain makes use of regenerative braking technology to recover energy usually lost during braking to power the vehicle’s onboard electronics. A motor then assists with engine acceleration from a standstill.
The use of this recovered energy, along with automatic engine shut-off at decelerating speeds below 20kph, lessens demand on the engine and increases vehicle mileage per tank of fuel. With the e-Skyactiv-G M Hybrid, Mazda customers not only realize a smoother drive but also achieve phenomenal fuel savings and lower emissions without having to worry about plugging in or charging.
The 2022 Mazda CX-30 M Hybrid features:
- Full red leather seats
- 12-Speaker BOSE Sound System
- LED Adaptive Front-Lighting System
- 360-degree view camera
- 18-inch wheels in high-gloss black finish
- i-Activsense features
- Mazda Radar Cruise Control
- Smart Brake Support
- Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist

“For 2022, the Mazda CX-30 moves up to deliver an even more efficient and well-rounded driving experience. In line with Mazda’s global initiatives, we see the introduction of the 2022 CX-30 e-Skyactiv-G M Hybrid as the first step for us to participate and be relevant partners in achieving the brand’s goals. All while keeping with the high level of quality and premium finish our customers have come to expect from Mazda,” said Tan.
The 2022 Mazda CX-30 M Hybrid is priced at Php 1,990,000.
The 2022 Mazda Premium Collection will be available in a new premium exterior color called Platinum Quartz. A daring mixture of bright aluminum flakes and opaque pigment, it illuminates the beautiful characteristics of Kodo: Soul of Motion design philosophy, bringing it to life in a whole new way.
All 16 Mazda showrooms nationwide will carry the 2022 Mazda Premium Collection beginning December 2021. All brand-new models in the lineup are covered by Mazda Philippines’ standard 5 Years Free Service Plan. This ensures a worry-free driving experience, free from parts pricing fluctuations, and additional billings for preventive maintenance expenses such as oil, parts, and labor, over the course of normal 5-year ownership. Along with the 3-Year Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty, every purchase of a brand-new Mazda is a premium experience that is now made even more rewarding.
