Mazda is Mulling the Idea of Bringing the Mazda2 and Diesels to the US

Mazda may be thinking about bringing its well regarded Mazda2 hatchback to the US in the not so distant future.

In addition to the Mazda2, the automaker is also looking into the future of diesels in the US.

“We’re not ready to make the announcement but obviously we sell diesels in Europe,” O’Sullivan said during a lunch with reporters in Detroit. “The Mazda 2 is extremely successful in Europe and Asia. We’re continuing to watch that space in North America.”

Currently Mazda of North America is busy finishing the launch of the CX-9, the revamped Mazda5 and the upcoming launch of the all-new Mazda6.

It will be interesting to see if Mazda does decide to bring the Mazda2 to the US, since Ford is also launching the Fiesta by the end of 2009. The Fiesta is based on the same platform as the Mazda2.
