There is also a high possibility that the new Mazda CX-5 will be equipped with a hybrid powertrain system, similar to the one found in the Toyota RAV4 or Corolla Cross. Toyota owns a 5% stake in Mazda and the two companies have collaborated on producing certain models, including the Mazda 3 hybrid exclusively for the Japanese market. In the US, both the Toyota Corolla Cross and Mazda CX-50 are assembled at the Mazda Toyota Manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama.
