TOKYO -- Mazda Motor plans to release its first diesel-engine hybrid vehicle, beginning in Europe and Japan, in 2020, company sources said Wednesday. The Japanese automaker will also consider selling the car in the U.S.

The market for diesel-powered cars has soured in the wake of an emissions scandal at German automaker Volkswagen and tougher pollution regulations, raising eyebrows among industry analysts at Mazda's move.
