Created as part of the company's "Building Block Strategy," the EV will be launched in the spring 2012 and have a range of approximately 200 km (124 miles). Despite being aimed primarily at governments and fleet owners, retail customers will also be able to lease the vehicle.

Over the course of the program, Mazda will gather feedback to learn more about usage requirements and consumer acceptance of electric drive technology.
