Mazda unveiled today the Takeri Concept, a car that will bow at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show and that previews the upcoming Mazda6. Based on the ‘Kodo – Soul of Motion’ design language, the new Mazda Takeri was designed to express an intuitive sedan identity but also a supremely comfortable ride feel. The Takeri is powered by a fuel-efficient and powerful Skyactiv-D clean diesel engine, which promises to deliver vigorous performance and a comfortable ride desired in a sedan.
Moreover, we find new electric devices that will deliver an even better fuel consumption, such as Mazda's idling stop system, i-stop, and a new regenerative braking system. This regenerative braking system will convert the energy to electricity during deceleration and will store it in capacitors and then use it to power the car’s electric equipment.
“The regenerative braking system represents Step Two of Mazda's Building Block Strategy. After renewing existing technologies, such as engines and bodies, Step One of the Building Block Strategy is idling stop technology (i-stop), Step Two is regenerative braking technology, and Step Three is electric drive technology (hybrid, etc.).” said the press release.
