    Mazda Claims There Is No Demand for Electric Vehicles

    It was a joke, Rotary engines are shit, and Apex seals do not wear like piston rings, it was a joke that they are a wearing part, like brakes and tires. Hence why would they replace it? So glad they stopped making cars with Rotary engines.
