Earlier this year, Mazda confirmed to Car and Driver that the venerable MX-5 Miata would gain some form of electrification when the next generation arrives. Now a report from Autocar sheds more light on the next Miata’s powertrain, with the publication claiming that the next roadster, expected to debut midway through this decade, will be powered by the firm’s novel Skyactiv-X engine with a mild-hybrid setup.
