Mazda is currently working on electrifying its lineup, which started with the MX-30 electric crossover and next up is the CX-90 plug-in hybrid. Mazda is also working on a new electric platform that will arrive in 2025, but what does the future hold for the MX-5 Miata?

In an interview with Autocar, Mazda’s CEO in Europe, Martijn ten Brink revealed that Mazda has no plans to discontinue the MX-5, even as it switches to an electrified lineup. When asked what Mazda has planned for the next-generation MX-5 he stated, “That’s not been decided. But I think for Mazda it would be fair to say that the MX-5 will never die.”

“I think it will continue to exist forever and it will have to go with the times. That’s a super challenge, and people are passionate about this car in Mazda.”

Mazda has already confirmed that all of its vehicles will be electrified by 2030, but what we don’t know is if the next MX-5 will be a hybrid or fully electric vehicle.
