So #Dieselgate is a real living, breathing thing now and Mazda is looking to capitalize on the news cycle. They just released a statement regarding their vehicles and the diesel debacle.

"In compliance with the law, Mazda works hard to ensure that every gasoline and diesel engine it makes fully complies with the regulations of the countries in which they are sold. Mazda never uses illegal software or defeat devices. Mazda's customers may rest assured that their vehicles are fully compliant with all regulations.

Now and into the future, Mazda remains committed to improving fuel efficiency and reducing CO2, as well as making exhaust emissions as clean as possible, while continuing to offer driving pleasure. Mazda will continue developing new technologies and working towards achieving “ideal combustion” in the internal combustion engine.

A number of countries around the world are investigating new homologation testing methods based on real driving conditions, such as Worldwide harmonized Light-duty Test Cycles and Real Driving Emissions. Mazda supports these initiatives and will cooperate with any requests from authorities."


Short and sweet, with tons of impact. Mazda may be in prime position to pounce on its larger rivals. Mazda's benefit in this case may actually be their smaller stature. #Dieselgate is breeding massive distrust between consumers and the mega manufacturers, can Mazda position themselves as the peoples car?

After all, it would take some seriously brass balls to come out with a statement like this while using covert defeat devices.

Now is the prime time for Mazda and any other automotive company not under the VW umbrella to nudge customers their way. The VW diesel vehicles may have their performance or fuel efficiency reduced after the recall fix.

Starting to make sense why we haven't seen a Mazda diesel in North America, Mazda is trying the legit way of bringing a motor that complies with our standards and our crappy diesel fuel quality.

I would take all announcements about meeting emissions regulations with a pinch of salt to be honest. You'll have to make up your own mind really you want to go for a diesel or petrol version of your car at the end of the day because you're going to have to finance and maintain whatever you end up driving home.
