Mazda has announced plans to introduce a sedan derivative of the Mazda2 next month at the Thailand International Motor Expo.

Set to be produced in Thailand, the Mazda2 Sedan will be available with the 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-D developing 105 HP (77 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque which will likely provide the same fuel economy numbers as in the hatchback: 3.4  liters / 100km (69.1 mpg US / 83 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 89 g/km.

Representatives of Mazda Sales (Thailand) have announced they are taking into consideration exporting the Mazda2 Sedan in Europe and Australia as a method to boost economies of scales. A gasoline engine is also being considered for Thailand while international markets will probably get the 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-G with 75 HP (55 kW) & 135 Nm (99 lb-ft) and/or 90 HP (66 kW) & 148 Nm (109 lb-ft).

The Mazda2 Sedan will premiere on November 28 at the Thailand International Motor Expo, with sales to commence sometime in 2015.
