Peugeot and Citroen, Hyundai and Kia, Audi and Skoda: what do all these brands have in common? Answer: they all have models in their ranges that share identical technology.
Soon, we’ll be able to add Toyota and Mazda to that list after the two Japanese giants formed an alliance to share electric vehicle (EV) technology.
The marriage makes all kinds of sense. Mazda has enjoyed a brilliant rebirth since reimagining the Mazda6 in 2012, with its KODO design language being introduced to every nameplate to create one of the sharpest-looking model ranges in the mainstream.
