In addition to the arrival of a new concept car at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday, 30 November, it will also be the first appearance for Mazda’s new fuel-saving regenerative braking system.
This technology will appear on the Mazda Takeri concept car, which is said to be a next-generation mid-sized sedan. It exploits Mazda’s new design language, KODO (Soul of Motion), to bring a new strength and allure to its mid-size sedan styling.
Under its appealing exterior is benchmark Skyactiv Technology, including Mazda’s first regenerative braking system, which converts kinetic energy to electricity during deceleration, stores it in capacitors and uses it to power the vehicle’s electrical equipment – reducing load on the engine and saving fuel.
When combined with the new Skyactiv-D diesel engine, Mazda i-stop, lightweight structure, good aerodynamic and chassis technologies, the regenerative braking enables Takeri to achieve excellent fuel economy with vigorous performance and a comfortable ride.
